The Scamp can be used for limited acrobatics and is stressed to +3G and -3G. The single-seat biplane is powered by a modified Volkswagen engine (1,600 to 2,100cc) turning a fixed-blade prop. Standing on tricycle landing gear, it utilizes a T-tail, a lightweight-metal two-spar wing structure, and a semi-monocoque lightweight- alloy fuselage. First flown in 1973, the Scamp can be built from either plans or a kit and is still on the market.
