    I wanted to add some comments regarding engine options. Having flown a single cylinder for many years and following UL engine options very closely, I have developed some biases on engine choices. Yes, I have flown the Black Devil M25Y and I don't ...

    Yes nano trikes are a blast to fly and totally different experience from the big heavy trikes. My understanding is the term "nano trikes" was first coined in Australia which matched one of their trike categories with the least regulation. I am ...

    Wayne - I read the above, got wide eyed and also grinned. My flight experience and then training with Larry was practically a mirror image. I came from an Airborne/582 and then an XT with the first Revo Sport Wing (the Reborne) before buying my ...

    I flew hang gliders at the H4 level before I got into trikes in 2000. I flew the ANT a couple of years ago at Sun-N-Fun and was a little bit intimidated, wondering if I was going feel like I was flying hang glider or a trike. Alexanders' wife (owner ...

    The standard engine on the REV is a Simonini Mini 3. it is an excellent example of the simplest engine available. But things like liquid cooling, gear box centrifugal clutch, electric start, counterbalanced can shaft and dual ignition all make for a ...

    I look forward to an air cooled simple version of the polini 250. Air borne use have designed their trikes in such away the pilot sits forward enough so that the wings can be used as hang gliders and advertise them so. Most all hanglider wings can ...

    The newest or late model UL wings for nano trikes from Airborne, NorthWing, Aeros, Rev and others are much more and offer a higher level of safety than using a Hang Glider wing with extra sleeving as a UL trike wing. A quick look at these new wings ...

    The Polini THOR 250 really is as smooth as a 447.

    If the Black Bull turns out to be a "vibration problem", the Polini Thor 250 would probably be the best option, if you need more than 27hp. The Polini Thor 250 is very smooth, but the radiator adds extra complexity with the hoses, nuts & bolts etc. ...

    My first lesson with Larry was a real eye opener. Before me and Larry went up in my new Revo I told Larry that I had 400 hrs on trikes. After an hour of going around in the pattern in pretty rough air and Larry saving us and my new Revo on a couple ...

    "Lean forward to flare" that's the one that took me a while to remember. I can still feel my instructor pushing my shoulders forward and shouting at me. I think the physical act of moving your butt back a bit and sitting up straight also wakes you ...

    He was flying a 912 NW Scout with a 12.4 and 400 hours. This 912iS REVO with a 14m flies very different in many ways. But I taught him many things which expanded his abilities and now he can fly comfortably in 20 MPH mid day conditions. Here are ...

    New REVO owner's first Solo flight in his new machine. We did 10 hours of advanced/transition training before he took it up solo. His landings are as good as mine now.

    Good question but no, it is like the halfway point .A Nano is really a motorized hang glider . The smoothness of a 447 has a lot of merit . I guess it is like motorcycles, where if the bike weighs less than you you have control that is unavailable ...

    Lindsay, would you consider the Air Criation Racer a Nano? Not much weight, 35 hp Rotax 447 and a 14M wing. I haven't flown it yet because the wing looks old, sun faded a bit but all new hardware and cables. Can you recommend a new wing for the ...

    I have a love for nano trikes as they were what started the trike craze in the first place for all the right reasons . This might be good place for a rant . It is likely that the black bull version will have vibration issues as a trike frame ...

    Wow Garrett, the Brooks range mountains seems like some awesome terrain to fly over. Think I would really enjoy flying over that area some day.
