    Hi Abid, in the end beauty is in the eye of the beholder. I think you"ll agree with that. Well, I guess DTA did a pretty good marketing job (or perhaps should I say the ones who did long trips with a DTA and filmed it). The same happens again now ...

    Scott: Get out of the pattern and go somewhere in your trike and fly at mid day. You will find out where people are going. It's not just about 100 mph. It's about not getting your arse handed to you in turbulence and having some control and being ...

    Hi Will: well I don't think that what you mentioned is just a European thing. It's that in North America the aviation infrastructure is quite mature. You go to an a XC flight and you can with plan easily to be at a place where you will find pilot ...

    Is this the last video from the Tanarg? Such fond memories... sniffle... Seriously Henry. I owe you plenty. Without your videos I'm not sure the wife would have approved the Trike funds.

    Excellent point guys. I'm 90% of the time not going anywhere and I'm just screwing around sight seeing. I prefer the 50 to 60mph speed range and my GTE is built well for that range. A DTA would be a better view and that speed would be fine but ...

    hi Gregg, the sudden engine out at the end is an editing error, somewhere I detached the sound and had it put back in at the wrong place. found it curious too and decided to leave it in on purpose haha. Hi Abid, true, nowadays there are ...

    I got the privilege to Fly Buddy Babcock's DTA voyager II. I could not believe the experience without the down tube. It was truly amazing and would love to own one some day. It really is the H2 Hummer of trikes.

    Very nice video Wil. A very nice trike experience with a nice trike, airfield and scenery. Curious, how is it that you turn off the engine at the end of the show? Normally the engine is shut down with the mags or ignition switch but this seems to ...

    Leo: Monocoque structure is being used in a trike now. Its the P&M PulsR. Its fiberglass with Balsa wood sandwich. I would have done carbon, 5 pound foam, kevlar sandwich personally with RTM or possibly low temperature pre-preg that can be done on ...

    Building or designing a trike w/o front strut is not a huge deal. I could engineer the structure in one day without a huge weight penalty actually. Its just been a DTA thing and out of respect at least I have kept away from doing it but they are not ...

    I have always found the DTA Voyager to be quite iconic and insperational.

    That's a good point Jan. Would love to hear Abid's and Larry's thoughts on this. No doubt they have both considered all the pro's and con's on this subject.

    Don't forget many trikes fly 80 plus miles per hour and flying at that speed with no protection gets old quite fast. If you want to do sight seeing at 40 mph I agree strut less will be fine.

    You can go carbon monocoque construction and avoid the weight Paul, but the price goes up accordingly. I'm brand spanking new to Trikes relatively speaking. But I can honestly say that the one factor that hooked me the most was the view from a ...

    How important is that minus front tube view?. Is it worth the extra weight?. I like it but how important is it for trike pilots? Very reverent discussion for future trike development. What do trike pilots think/want?..... I like it....
