Description  Wing is based on the SM701 airfoil, trapezoidal outer part is modified into FX-60-126. Wingtips are equipped with winglets. Basic element of the construction is a plywood, box section beam and ribs made from spruce scantlings. Front part of the ribs is made from expanded polystyrene. Leading edge of the wing is covered by plywood and forms a torsion box. Polyester fabric covers trailing part of the wing. On the upper part of the wing are located hinged aerodynamic brakes. Wooden construction ailerons are also covered by a polyester fabric. They are operated via Dural tube rods. Wings are supported by shaped struts. Wing is fixed to the fuselage by mountings located on the wing beam and on the trailing edge section.

Fuselage, including the tail fin, is formed from a fiberglass monocoque. Monocoque is reinforced by plywood ribs. Ribs are utilized as wings, struts, undercarriage wheel and rescue system mountings.

Cockpit (closed type) is covered by a one-piece canopy made from a splinter-proof polycarbonate (Makrolon). There is a ventilation window on the side of the canopy. Control stick is a classic style type. The cockpit is equipped with aerodynamic brakes lever (left side), rope release control ("T" shaped handle on the instrument panel) and trim handle. The cockpit is ventilated via ventilation outlets, located on the instrument panel. Adjustable pilot’s seat is equipped with 4-point safety belts.

Fixed undercarriage consists of the main unsprung wheel (outer radius 400mm) and uncontrollable tail wheel (outer radius 140mm). The main wheel is fitted with a disk brake. The brake is operated via a cycle brake lever, mounted on the control stick.

Tail surfaces are "T" shaped. Horizontal tail surfaces have similar construction as the wing and use modified Wortmann FX-71-L-150/30 airfoil.

Controls and instrumentation. The instrument panel of the plane is equipped with the following instruments: airspeed indicator, combined electronic altimeter/variometer, compass and bank indicator.

System of controls. Ailerons and elevator are operated via rods, equipped with swiveling joint ends. Levers are fitted with ball bearings. Rudder is cable controlled. Aerodynamic brakes are also cable controlled, in combination with springs.
