    Short arms, bar too far away....... In my case there were apparently special wires for a Cygnet and I had the standard, Northwing Mustang 3 ones. Something about the way the trike hangs? I know I've got a lower ass end than most trikes but that ...

    Yes the sea plane experts told me that the new inflatable vests are automatic and inflate when wet. Again possibility of pinning you under if you get wet. I have the old style one where you pull the handle to inflate it but I would be happy simply ...

    Damian/Paul; The inflatable is a much better solution than a standard life vest but it's still bulky with lots of places to get hooked while trying to get out. There is a belt only inflatable which straps tightly around your waist which is even ...

    >>Personally the last thing I would want is to be caught underneath pinned to the bottom underneath not able to escape Paul, when I went up in one, I had on one of those life vests that are "empty" and have a CO2 charge in them, so when you are ...

    Hey Paul, looking forward to you flying a Cygnet; maybe you can give me pointers on-line. My next goal is WSC PP which I'll probably end up doing down at Evolution. The manufacturer would like to see my get my CFI but it's not really something ...

    Tom Currier Pine pitch removal from a wing - any suggestions? I've tried soap, plain old elbow grease, but no solvents as I don't want to damage the sail. Somewhere on the internet they said try butter....didn't work.

    Andy; Those are the decisions we have to make and I've decided that in the event of a flip it's better to be more able to clear the area and get to the surface than to have a life jacket on for said reasons. This is an amphib..it's going to float ...

    I know nothing at all about amphib trikes, but in a previous life I did a few simulated helicopter escapes in a swimming pool. It's amazing how difficult it was to find and undo harnesses and doors and escape, and everything you wear (shorts, t ...

    Do you think your grand son would be able to get his life jacket from under the seat after you flip/crash and you couldn't help him?(hope you don't). If you are a boater you know its a must have for any boat traveling faster than 30 mph for a young ...
