    Dean - Good question - the crash was in 2009 - when I first made the switch to trikes in 2000 I had a lot of help - Winters are harsh up here and I don't fly in the winter - every fall I flew to a small lake and left the trike for someone to pick up ...

    White Eagle - Honestly, it is hard to tell since I have probably done 1100 hours on just floats - My trike is really nimble, I do spirals for fun, chandelles are easy, I can really toss it around at will. That said, I do remember, way back when, ...
