The S-6ES went into production in April 1990. It is the second generation of the original S-6 design. Increased wing span through a fuselage redesign resulted in improved performance and appearance. The ES denotes "extended span". The design goals that the S-6 achieved represented a significant advance in quick-build kit planes. The S6ES series takes this goal even further. Using mostly all pre-finished parts and pre-sewn skins, the average build time is between 350 and 400 hours. Coyote II's can be built in the confines of an average garage normal shop tools and skills.


The new sport wing is now standard * and offers outstanding performance equal to the best of the standard wing and 116. With a 9:1 glide, the ES is off in a short run and cruising over 100 mph with 80 HP Rotax 912 UL. The roll rate is light and adverse yaw very minimal. The smooth presewn wings skins feature few seams, and offer equal to dope and fabric wings in performance. Because of the CNC stamped aluminum ribs the wing is not only a joy to fly but to assemble. The sport wing is the most advanced dacron covered wing on the market, with such features as a leading edge skin, and root rib tensioning.


Why has the S-6ES been so successful worldwide? Smart buyers know the real thing when they see it, and the Coyote II from RANS stands up to even the most discriminating. Since beginning production in 1989 the Coyote II has transformed the sport plane world. Being very popular in Europe and world wide, the design endures steady sales, and a large following. Over 1600 Coyote II's have been produced; this fleet of sport planes operates in over 50 countries. The conclusion is the S-6ES is a solid plane, and a solid investment. Coyote II's hold their value and are prized pre-owned aircraft. It is a sport plane of useable value, a tough trainer; some airframes have over 3000 hours. It can operate in the raging winds of Kansas; we still do demos when it is blowing in the 30MPH plus range. It can operate on desserts, float on lakes, or land at high elevations. The cabin is roomy fitting from 5'2" to 6'6", and weather tight. With the optional heater, fly year round. The Coyote II is the plane often copied but never duplicated. It is the plane that fulfills and defines sport flying to a "T", STOL, with fast cruise 105 MPH to 120 MPH, depending on wing and engine options, affordable, in a fantastically complete, well crafted kit, from a company owned and operated by the same folks since 1974.

We laid out the S-6ES kit, just so you can get an idea of what you get for the money. We feel we provide a premier kit, with a level of detail, finish, and completeness second to none.
The point of building from a kit is to have the convenience and value. Kit aircraft have as a whole come a long way since we started, and a much higher level of fabrication and completeness is present. We welcome this, because we believe the more provided, the more likely you end up with a plane that performs as per our claims. An kit that is lacking puts the builder in the design, engineer and fabricate role. That should be reserved for the those who build from plans. You as a consumer pay for a kit, not a surprise list of things you still need to buy or fabricate. I hope you enjoy the photo of the S-6S kit, and can appericate the level of finish, fabrication, and detail provide in our standard kits.


S-6 Kit














A 50% deposit is required and 100% on Props & Engines, to confirm an order. This initial deposit can be made with a certified check, wire transfer, money order, company check or personal check.


The balance of your payment is due prior to ship out. RANS will make every effort to contact you plenty of time in advance of the ship out date so that this final payment does not hold up your order. Final payment should be made with a certified check, money order, or a wire transfer.


Sales tax is not added to shipments that are shipped out of the state of Kansas. Shipments within the state of Kansas will be charged sales tax at the rate of the delivery destination. For out of state customers picking up a kit at the factory, the customer must complete a notarized sales tax affidavit that defers sales tax to your state of residence.


With the purchase of a RANS kit, you are entitled to buy the Rotax engine directly from RANS. We do our best to keep the price as low as possible. The price will be our published price at the time of purchase.

The warranty period (6 months or first 100 hours whichever comes first) must begin within 1 year of delivery. For many home building projects this is not an adequate time frame to be finished and flying. And even for those folks who plan to finish in a short period of time, unexpected circumstances sometimes change these plans. Order your engine about 12-14 weeks before you will be ready to install it. Customer pays freight charges on all engine shipments, no matter if shipped with the kit or shipped separately later.


Depending upon production demands, delivery dates vary. Please inquire at the time of purchase about current delivery times. Kits (without any pre-built or quick build options) are usually shipped in 8-12 weeks. However, during high demand times this time can run longer. Quick build kit delivery times vary widely and are strictly dependent upon the number and extent of projects already on the schedule. An expected delivery date will be given at the time of order.


However, this is not a guarantee and is subject to change.


Our inventory and production emphasis are based on what is ordered. Therefore, it is difficult to change an order once confirmed. Custom made or ordered items cannot be changed without cost. (For example, changing the color scheme after the skins are already sewn.)


Due to custom nature of our product, orders are transferrable, but cancellations are not allowed and will result in loss of deposit.


We make every effort to send out your order complete. However, experience has shown that this cannot always be the case. Many items we use are highly specialized and many are supplied by only one vendor. When a vendor without warning changes a lead-time from 3-4 weeks to 3-4 months it means we might not have this item in stock. We do send out backorders (not including engines, see #4) at our expense as quickly as we receive them. In some cases back orders are sent F.O.B.


We check and re-check and are 99.9% certain that if we say we shipped it, we did. The first task in building your kit is to inventory the parts using the packing list provided. It's your job to keep all parts organized and accounted for upon receiving your kit. We can not provide ìmissingî parts cost free after 60 days.


Because we deal with several vendors of props (Warp Drive, and Sensenich), all propellers are considered special orders and cannot be returned or exchanged! Because of variations in engines, flying conditions, function of the RPM gauge, variations in the prop itself, and other numerous factors, performance can vary considerably. We will do our best to provide the information you need to order a prop that will do the best job. However, because of variations, we cannot guarantee performance.


A RANS kit aircraft is purchased as a complete kit. The only exceptions are kits sold less engine and less firewall forward. RANS will not accept for credit unused items from the original kit.


We cannot guarantee continued supply of any items outside scope of our manufacture. This includes, but is not limited to engines, props, instruments, and sensors for instrumentation, wheels, brakes, tires, and so forth.


This policy pertains to the purchase of the aircraft kit. Parts and options ordered later will be handled on an individual basis. Any part that is shipped that is incorrect will be exchanged free of charge. However, all returns must be authorized by our Parts Department.


RANS Designs, Inc. reserves the right to make changes in prices, specifications, or models, or add improvements at any time without notice or obligation.
