Here's what that thing is...... A group of kids next door looked at me setting up my wing in awe and while my wife watched me take off from the porch, she heard them calling my trike Chitty, Chitty, Bang Bang. I like it :)

    Larry; thanks to your training all my landings are completely no power. I've had some sketchy approaches where earlier I would have powered out but with your technique I've followed through and always nail the landing. That said, I'm always ready ...

    I did some engine out practice last night and my glide is taking me much further than expected. How much is the glide affected by engine at idle vs. shut down? Although I've done a number of idle glides to see how far I can effectively go from ...

    At the risk of burying other posts with a comment on my video.....I lied. Checking my log book I did a mid winter flight on January 21st. It was a balmy 45 in NH that day.

    Nice vid but somehow that music (and I know it's playing a bit fast) doesn't go with trike flying :) I can picture Benny Hill running around banging and bumping into everything followed by an entourage of equally goofy characters....not to be ...

    Think you could've done that okay in the Cygnet?

    Tom Currier I'm looking for a temporary carport type storage unit for my trike for storage with the wing open. Does anyone know of a manufacturer that sells something that might work?

      John Williams Tom; Reb: I suggested the same solution earlier; a quonset hut type building works great for a trike, especially if you slide the trike in sideways. All you need is a trolly/dolly that will allow for the trike to be wheeled into the hanger sideways. Wonderful solution. Regards, JDW

    Phil, Here's a good website: http://www.mountainflying.com/ . I've done some review and found snipets in the web page to be very good reading.

    Nice, Paul. I was expected to see a few jolts as you crossed the peaks but looked like you had smooth air. What happens on a sunny side slope with winds coming in from the sunny side? I would imagine you get some pretty strong updrafts then ...

    I got my ass down to Evolution Trikes shortly after my drop incident for additional training (been there twice in fact). It's been invaluable for land triking and I apply Larry's landing techniques to my water landings as well. I never had to ...

    My drop incident was from a normal thermal/rotor and I came in shallow with power; never again. However, on the good side I have a new mast now

    Good brace, looks like a fun piece of water. Hope those trees don't make too many strainers! Nice to see a fellow paddler here.
