    Hello there

    Having come to microlighting from paragliding, I too like the idea of a soaring trike and, in particular, the Dragonfly.

    There is a chap here in the UK who owned one for a while but ultimately sold it. The following is a link to his blog (starting from the point in time he bought one). His experiences make an interesting read ...

    Things have moved on since then as the Dragonfly now comes with the Bailey V5 engine as well as the option of a Combat wing.

    Anyone have advise on how I can aquire a Drangonfly in Ontario Canada? I'm anxious to get into trike soaring and although North Wing's new offering looks appealing, I tend to stay away from first offerings. The ATF is on my short list as well, but does anyone have any advise on which engine is best?

    Does anybody know Steve "Revo" Revolinski? He had a beautiful little scratch-built soaring trike at Oshkosh a few years ago. I'd love to get some detail photos of it, if anybody knows anything about it?

    Hey Joe,

    Nice photo (your new profile). Did you buy your whole rig new? What did you do for conversion training between HG and the ATF?

    Hi Everyone,

    It seems like there is a fair bit of interest in little trikes here. That's great! I like the big ones too, I just like the little ones better...

    Flying is much more fun than grumbling! I'm at home with a sick little girl today. Since I left work the sky has shifted from leaden grey to blue with high cirrus. The season is getting closer!

    Ahhh... more flying, more soaring ... that's what I think we are all looking for.. less fighting, less advertising.
    Thank you Wayne!
