The aircraft fuselage frame is made from aluminum, while the tail is Kevlar composites. Its 7.10 m (23.3 ft) diameter rotor has a chord of 17.5 cm (6.9 in). The instrument panel is mounted in a simple pod. The aircraft has an empty weight of 120 kg (265 lb) and a gross weight of 300 kg (661 lb), giving a useful load of 180 kg (397 lb).
