This easy-motor aircraft was developed by the Czech aviation engineer 2010 year, moreover, the fuselage design is very similar to the design of a motorized glider, but, in fact, the plane belongs to the class of light aircraft. Its first flight model Distar UFM-13 Lambada implemented in 1996 year and a few months since the end of the year 1996, became mass-produced.

The main reason that the plane Distar UFM-13 Lambada belong to the class of motorized gliders is a very large wingspan, which is a characteristic feature of these aircraft. In fact, the aircraft is capable of movement in the ascending and descending air currents, which in turn allows the two longest enough air travel.

The Distar UFM-13 Lambada model did not receive a large distribution mainly due to the limited functionality of this aircraft - its commercial operation is not expedient due to low passenger capacity. On board the aircraft can accommodate only two people, while the aircraft is suitable for air travel at distances up to 780 kilometers. The aircraft is not adapted for the transportation and transportation of goods due to the rather small payload received on board, and also because of the limited space in the cockpit of the aircraft.

As the power plant is used four-cylinder reciprocating air-cooled aircraft engine Rotax 912ULS capacity 100 hp, however, reach a maximum speed of the aircraft is limited only 185 km \ h., Which is also one of the negative aspects of this model. Originally intended to create on the basis of a modification of this version, equipped with more productive aircraft engine, however. Ultimately, because of the lack of orders, the decision was reversed.

It is unusual is the location of the wings of the aircraft - the majority of the aircraft are located either at the bottom or at the top, however, the model Distar UFM-13 Lambada wings are located in the middle part, which according to experts is one of the reasons for the rather low airspeed.

Between 1996 of 2014 years was built only 26 airplanes of this model, and, despite the low cost component in the middle of 2015 years about 75 thousand dollars, demand for aircraft at customers virtually do not use, in view of what is expected to raise the question of withdrawal of this model production.
