Vector 610 ultralight, ultra lite aircraft, amateur built, experimental, homebuilt aircraft.

Like its predecessor the 600, the Vector 610 is an upright V-tail, high-wing monoplane with double surface wings supported by kingpost-and-cable bracing. A coordinated control stick activates ruddervators and spoilerons for full three-axis aerodynamic control.

The 242cc, 22hp, single-cylinder Zenoah G25B-1 engine is front-mounted on the keel and provides power through a 2.33-to-1 reduction and drive shaft to a 42-inch by 24-inch cherry wood prop. The frame is made of 6061-T6 anodized aluminum with 3/32" 7 x 7 stainless steel cable rigging. Wing cloth is 3.9 oz Dacron.

Design refinements to the Vector 610 include an improved wing that gives better low end performance and a 3 mph drop in stall speed, stronger hardware and a bungee cord suspension on the tricycle landing gear, a Fisher tuned exhaust system that adds 3hp and decreases noise level, an enlarged pilot cage, and an optional steerable nosewheel.

The high performance 610 wing is washed out three degrees at the tips. This decreases the angle of attack of the wings near the tips and as the 610 approaches stall, the tips stall after the rest of the wing, stabilizing the airplane as it enters the stall and simplifying stall recovery.

Additional aluminum battens are inserted into the upper fabric of the wing, improving airfoil definition and keeping the air in contact with the wing longer at a higher angle of attack, resulting in more lift before stall and better glide ratio at top speed.

Options for the Vector 610 include custom sails, cross-country wheel kit, prop protection kit, cover bags, floats, airborne restart, CHT, tachometer, airspeed indicator, and a spare parts kit which contains parts that are most likely to be lost or damaged.

Kits took approximately 30 hours to assemble.

The Vector owner's manual includes basic information on how to fly safely, micrometeorology, and the sections of FAR Part 91 that apply to ultralight operations.
