I'm not sure I would ride this baby but maybe some of you are more adventurous. In case you're wondering... it does fly

looks pretty cool, I do not think I would have the balls to attempt flight with it, although I would like to see it fly.:beer3:

I have a hard enough time with two wheels on the ground let along 3 wheels in the air.

Nice ride. This reminds me of my younger years back in the early 80's when I had a Powered Ultralight Hang Glider.

Ahh, the memories - I managed to walk away from an ultralight that started coming apart about 2,000 ft. over Vermont. I won't be doing that (or a gyrocopter or a hang glider) any time soon.

Guess I am just lucky, Never had to fly one of those :lol: ... Did have a bensen Gyro one time, no engine on it, had to pull it behind a car, I got one flight out of it and the next guy wrecked it... :cry:

Stearman, Had you been flying a Stearman, it would not have started coming apart at 2000 ft ! They are strong !!


JMHO :cool:

Well, you're quite right. Other than being a bit into ground-looping, the 17 was pretty rugged. Funny thing was my dad (who was almost 80 at the time) flew the ultralight just before me. Dad used to fly me around in a PT17 after he came home from the Pacific at the end of WW!! - he was Army but some Navy buddy taught him to fly one somewhere. We had been arguing about who was the better pilot and, neither having a valid ticket, figured that an ultralight was the only legal way we could settle the bet. LOL, he won when I totaled the thing, although I should have for being able to get the pieces down without killing myself.
