Short historical background:
Three of this motorglider were imported by the HMNRA and they went to different HMNRA training centers. The type were mostly used for instructor advanced training. However Károly Szomolányi performed a 6 hours duration flight with one of the Motor Babys in 1944 which was a - non official - world record for motorgliders.
One Motor Baby survived the war and was used occasionally till the end of the 1940s.
