    Thats a sweet looking trike!! I just soloed in a Buggy just like that on Thursday. Even had the same N number;) You'll be glad to know she's in good hands and her new owner loves her!

    Thanks Eric. From one of my most respected early flex wing adopters what a compliment. Again I must say Eric as an examiner provided my hang gliding tandem rating way back. He was flying the high performance wings i was jelious of.

    Yes Cortney and Henry Bogner are our LA tirke connection. I expect to see much more here. The american dream of freedom.

    Hi Rick - my patch is pretty special. That flight was in the area west of Petaluma, CA in southern Sonoma and northern Marin counties. The Chileno Valley featured prominently.

    Scott: I wouldn't try to improve anything. I would take it to a proper Rotax trained and "experienced" technician and let them fix it once and forget it. Your carbs do have a re-build schedule that you should follow. You are long overdue with carbs ...

    Interesting man, I didn't know that. You can imagine in our line of work with the military, it requires both and then some >

    Ah... She looks like a model. I keep hoping for a trike calendar. I'll pre-order if anyone is listening!

    Abid, thank you for your wise advice and I do hear you but.... I keep having problems with my carbs. I keep fixing them but it's frustrating. I wish I could use the settings the manufacturer set but that was in 1999 and when I got it in 2013 even ...

    Nice flight and beautiful land, water and sky. You have some good money shots! Where is the area you were flying?

    Not FEA. Static load testing. FAA does not prefer FEA. Part 23 does not allow one to get away with just an analysis without some justification in reality of modeling. ASTM does allow to get away with just analysis but that is not a preferred method ...

    You're welcome Scott :) Great little trikes to be honest, at least by all review account's I've read. In fact, I dare say it compares in the same class as my 582 buggy, which as far as I know has been discontinued, but don't quote me on that. Abid ...

    Abid, has the Jet Star been through structural FEA? Is it a full engineered Trike in that sense?

    Better than original Delta Jet, worse than Delta Jet-II. Similar to Airborne XT IMO

    Abid, how's the head clearance to the rear mast for the passenger? Can the mast be easily re-designed to be more like the Delta Jet II's?

    Nice shot by a guy with one of the best jobs in the world. That's the Point Vicente Lighthouse with the various parts of Palos Verdes behind it. Some mighty expensive real estate you were flying next to.

    Scott Williams: You don't mess with the carbs on a 582 once they are set for your altitude. If you mess with them, get ready for an engine seizure. Leave them be as set from the factory. There is no proven 582 fuel injection system that I know of ...
