    Brian Fox Good morning my friends, I want to send a shout out to all of you for your great advice on purchasing my first trike, Larry, Abid, Paul, and many others who gave me the good bad and ugly on various models, I decided to go with the Quick GT 450, this trike and wing seem to fit the bill of everything I was looking for my first trike, if all goes well my instructor and I will be heading down for a demo flight and purchase, the trike we are looking at has carefully maintained and cared for since new, it is SLSA and even the color my wife wanted (LOL), I am very proud and excited and very much look forward to the day my instructor gives me the glorious phrase "you ready for solo" albeit I am in no hurry for this at all it just gives something to shoot for, wow such an amazing time in my life and words cant express how excited I am, this should bring a lifetime of enjoyment to myself and my wife, open skies and adventure await us, and sometime down the road I look forward to flying with all of you, and particularly flying a cross country to the sun and fun event in Florida. I hope to introduce this great sport and art form to many of my friends and encourage them to at the very least take a discovery flight and really see what its like fly in the majestic machines! I do want to give a special shout out to my instructor and friend Todd Havlar of Papa Tango aviation for guiding me carefully through my trike purchase, I was always texting him "what do you think about this one" and he was always willing to answer me with out ever steering me to one or the other, just the points of each one. Now I guess I need to start looking at some good winter gear, I think I read a post from Paul a while back on heated gear, and I look forward to getting active here on Trike pilot and helping show how wonderful and SAFE this sport can be. I will soon try and post some pics and video of my journey with my trike. Once again Thanks everyone!!!! Semper Fidelis

    Brian Fox Good morning my friends, what was the first wing you went solo own and what in your opinion is a good first wing size not brand for good over all flight as a noob, not trying to open a can of worms here just wanted to get some opinions from some of you, what do you think pf a 10.9 wing from good company as a first wing, I hear and read it has super light pitch and roll and flies good in bad conditions but is it a little to free for new pilot, I know its all what you are comfortable with but in general what do you think?

      Larry Mednick It depends on 2 things. What did you train on and how did you do during training. I teach on a fairly advanced wing and when I am done with my students, if they are solid, I know they are ready and capable to fly anything. If you train on a super docile wing then everything is a step up

      Larry Mednick My first wing was a La Mouette 12.9 on a Tucan, my second wing took more skill to fly which was a Red Back with a Wizard which was 50% larger. What ever you buy, just make sure you are transitioned to it whether that is a lap around the pattern or 10+ hours of training. And some people should only fly super docile wings while others should simply not fly at all. But most who are physically and mentally “fit” can start on any wing in my opinion. But there will be more training to do it safely for sure.

      Brian Fox Larry i am traing on a Bionix2 wing, I dont have any trouble with it so far, and at the last 30 min of lessons my instructor basically gives me free flight and usually do diving turns and higher roll turns, I just like the thrill of getting sucked into the seat, since this is the only wing I have flown i am very curious as to what others fly like. I have a quick basic here locally for sale which has the 10.3m wing on it, then there is the GT 450 also with the 13m wing, they are both about the same price and same time, the quick has a 100 hp and the GT has the 80 hp, this is a few that i am looking at.

      Larry Mednick The GT 450 will feel and respond similar, the 10.6 Quick is quite easy to fly but close to double the roll rate and when flying solo is one of the most fiun wings money can buy. If you are very light you will enjoy it even more. The 450 can carry more weight and glides better. If you Fly the 10.6 you will be ruined in my option if you like to carve turns. It is quite ultimate. After flying that Wing 15 years ago it changed me and my expectations of trikes. Many light trikes can handle like the 10.6 , but getting heavy 912 machines to fly like that is challenging and most manufacturers don’t even try to make them fly like that. HAVE FUN trying the 10.6.

      Abid Farooqui GT-450 is probably better choice for you. Quik is nothing like the Bionix

    This is a great topic, I am a student pilot actively looking for my first trike, I am sure to fly in turbulent air sooner or later so I will be watching this carefully to hear what the vets have to say!

    Brian fox I would like to get some opinions from some of you guys on the front end issues on Northwing trikes made in the 2010 to 2015 time frame, I have read a lot about shimmy and rake issues on these years, I do see that they addressed this in their new versions, if someone were to buy one of these years is this something that could be fixed. By no means am I knocking them just asking this question because there is one on my radar for purchase as my first trike. Happy Thanksgiving and Semper Fidelis
