Of course, the point is well-taken. Never said they were legit, in fact I even expressed suspicion in my post regarding the fact no hardware had ever been built. I simply made a list of their designs and posted it in the "Designation Systems" section, where I think it belongs...

Allow me refer to you to this post by Triton, which says it all as far as I'm concerned:

Fan art and other imaginary designations do not belong here, IMHO.

A matter of opinion I suppose. So long as it is from an incorporated company which has designed aircraft with the intention to have them produced, I can't see why it shouldn't belong here... but in the end it will be up to the mods to decide what to do with this topic. The history of aviation is ripe with fledgling or startup companies that planned to get designs produced but never got them off the drawing board for lack of financing or various misfortunes. Yet their designs are sometimes interesting and would have made great aircraft had they been produced. Not all unbuilt designs are lousy or unrealistic, and many built designs also turned out to be lame ducks...

No please, this is 100% fantasy and it is not an opinion. Deleting this thread would be the minimum secretprojects could do to maintain the high standards that most appreciate here.
Jemiba's concluding post on the other thread discussing it is excellent.

I have recently corresponded with Christoper Beskar - I have been watching the Stavatti website for years with a certain amount of humorous curiosity. In my opinion he is sincere, but a fantasist - they produce a lot of web content but little aircraft engineering. Our conversation ended when I asked for some technical details on the light sport aircraft they say they are developing now. I did not get any response after that request.

My opinion is that he just has no filter between his conceptual design and his website and compulsively externalizes all of his ideas - good and bad - so you end up with the Stavatti website. I do not think there is any malicious intent.
