    Larry makes amazing wings. I am sticking with the smaller Rival S because I need to be able to fly in high winds and turbulence. Size matters. However, when I get a REVOLT for outback flying, I will have a hard time deciding how much bigger wing I ...

    Joey, the trim system needs lift in order to "activate". So when the wing starts producing lift the hang block moves aft until The 2 cables tighten up. Then the cables either pull the HB forward or release the HB backwards in flight moving the hang ...

    Btw Kamron (owner of Northwing) got to fly the RIVAL X for the first time when he came to Sun N Fun. He said he was surprised how stabile it was and how responsive it was all at the same time. He went up with Wes Frey in his REVO and was apparently ...

    Rizzy, they are completely different wings. Everything about them... this wing is actually based on the popular 12.4m RIVAL S wing and not a GT5 wing at all. New for this wing is 7 degrees of fixed flaps for super short takeoff and landing. Although ...

    The hang block moves back when the wing unloads, unusual

    At the 6 second mark why does the hang block move back on the keel so far when the wing starts to get loaded.

    Philip, thanks. It is 14m wing. Rizzy, you should ask Larry. I'm not sure he sells it to other trike owners.

    I have two questions? 1) What is the prime difference between Rival X and Northwing's GT 5 wing? Or are they the same wing? 2) How much does this wing cost?

    Really nice landings! We should all strive to make out landings like your last one.

    Looks fantastic. Your landings are great, rear wheels down and holding the front in the air for 3+ seconds, superb. How many M² is that wing??

    My first impression on new Rival X (14m) wing I just flew this brand new wing for couple of hours. It is just an mazing wing. It has all good characteristics of Rival S plus many more great capability of larger wing. 1. Cut through turbulence ...

    Henry,
    Not a Dealer option. Custom built to my specs. Was not easy to get it perfect but finally I'm there. It's freaking awesome and turns heads just like my amphib trike. I hated the skinny front standard wheels and embarked on this project 4 months ago. Finally, completed and I'm very pleased. Interestingly enough, also Rotax powered 990cc, approx 106HP, I believe.

    Hi Henry, yes, the carbon tube you see is a 4 ft arm that secures the gopro camera I have, Im working out the mount so I can also use it as a nose mount. I just wish the camera had a remote.

    Yes it was lucky that nothing was damaged worse than a rim and tire. In fact, outside of the noise, I ran the trike down the runway with steering. The brakes didn't work, though.

    Henry, Well thanks, but I use videos like yours and others that have really set the standard. Wish I could get to better music, but guess that is all about making a great video. Really have enjoyed the xcounty flight! Thanks, Den

    Hi Henry - I have a Thai PPL for both but it is possible to fly a trike on an Ultralite license but, not my trike. My trike is "HS" registered since I wanted it that way (less hassle when filing flight plans) and, since my fuel tank exceeds 50 litres.

    Hi Henry, I should use my iphone, but that would be another gadget that would take more time to set up and use - time restraints!!! I must admit that I enjoy having as much info available after and during flights, but the info provided to me by my NUVI 500 is enough at present.

    No My trike is in the background. The Powered glider is a South African Whisper, owned by our Hanger Landlord Warren Rosewall and the Jora is Owned by our other flying buddy Giesie Fieberger.
    I 1.98 meter 115 kg body doesnt fit into any of these airframes comfortably. The spaciousness of trikes certainly do appeal to me!

    Hi Diego, two trikes are located in different places (about 70miles apart), Tanarg is at Santa Paula Airport near the pacific shoreline, this location is beautiful with green mountains, lakes, towns and sea, but a lot of aviation traffic. On the other hand, Airborne is in the middle of Mojave desert where there is very few aviation traffic, with wide desert view. I decide based on my feeling which environment I want to fly.
