Does anybody here know more about this aircraft and it´s remains? Are there still examples of it flying? Apparently it was designed by Richter Flugzeugbau in the 90s, a few examples were built in South Africa by RMT Aviation. Any information would be greatly appreciated!

Apparently the South African one was not 'genuine' Richter. It was a https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/RMT_Bateleur

"Actually, this is not a Richter Delta Dart II, but it is merely an empty hull and wing-structure of a plane called "Bateleur" which was built by a man known as A. v. Schoenbeck. It was a case of blatant plagiarism - the plans were obtained and illegaly used in the attempt to establish production in South Africa. In South Africa everything ended in a major case of presumably fraudulent bankruptcy. The single authentic Richter Delta Dart II remains in germany, its whereabouts kept secret."

Now that design is going to have some serious pitch over on throttle up. Marc Z?
