    Doug, try watching to see if the keel wobbles inside the keel pocket where the tensioner hooks in to the keel, particularly if it has the balloon tires. The wing will start oscillating and feed into the trike causing an extreme side to side vibration that will eventually eat the steering bearings. Check the steering bearings. Good luck.

    Should have looked more closely around the site as I did not know there was a Northwing group. I have been flying now for 7 years with my Apache Sport with Mustang II 15m wing. Love it! Just needs to warm up.....

    I have an "EL Gearbox Generator". It's a ROTAX 582 accessory with a 230 watt ac electric output that inserts between PTO end and gearbox. I'd like to wire it but wonder if it's ac output can be hard wired to existing Key West regulator with the 170 watt ac output of the lighting coil output (2 yellow/black wires)?

    I worry that connecting to same Key West regulator terminals as lighting output leads will damage either lighting or generator circuits?

    Of course I can simply add a second Key West regulator and have two 12 volt electric output sources.

    Anyone else out in trike world have this setup? How did you wire?

    Also adding a video of how to set up a wing and install it on your trike. It's an AIRBORNE trike not a Northwing but I likethe video and found it very useful as a resource for my Northwing wing. The setup is not exactly the same but very similar. Hope you agree and that it's helpful!

    I've been meaning to upload these photos for months and finally got around to it tonight. My Northwing Maverick 2 Legend arrived in Ottawa, ON, CANADA on Sept. 29, 2012. I've included photos here of how it arrived in a crate and at various stages of unpacking. I'll soon add more photos of my trike assembled. Stay tuned.

    Has anybody mated the older Pacer wing to the newer Maverick trike? I have both trikes both older and newer as well as older original Maverick 15 and Pacer wing as well as the newer Maverick 15 wing. Planning on rebuilding original trike so it will be out of commision and really like the Pacer wing and would like to know if it could be used on the newer trike. I fly every permitting.

    Anyone try one of the tall windshields on a Pacer/Maverick?
    Also looking for a different fuel tank for the Maverick trike.

    don't pull the bar back until below 30 mph pulling back above 30 cause a wobble because of down pressure from pulling back puts all the weight on ft wheel. like any tricycle gear you need to keep weight off at high speeds.

    Doug, do you have the NW steering dampener? Maybe that would help.
