There are more and more LSA planes on the market. One of them is the Speed Cruiser by Renegade. A new light sport aircraft was unveiled by Renegade Light Sport Aircraft at Airventure 2012 - The SC 07 Speed Cruiser.

Renegade also introduced the D-Motor, a flat head, four cylinder, liquid cooled, direct drive engine producing 95 horsepower and weighing in at only 125 lbs. complete.

The airplane - in combination with the D-Motor - is a very attractive package - due to its exceptional payload capacity, and power to weight ratio.
