    Well put together and explained.
    You sure do manufacture a quality and well built microlight, congratulations to you all on the work you have done to attain this standard.
    Keep it up.

    I like the battens ends, in setting up a wing this is the most time consuming job.

    Larry, I love these how-to videos. This one answers so many questions so clearly. And 9 minutes! Great job.

    Now, can I fold my Profi TL on the trike the same way? I had always been thinking in terms of dropping the mast first but this is slick. It's easier and keeps the trike maneuverable. It looks like just the thing for an away overnight when you think it might rain or you expect lots of dew in the morning. Plus stuffing more trikes in the hangar, as you point out.

    Hi Steve,
    Yes you can indeed fold the Profi TL the same way. There are a few things different
    1) You need to make sure that besides the nose cone, you also disconnect the backup cable through struts on the control bar or they will get kicked when you fold
    2) You can take out probably only the 4 outer upper battens on the Profi TL before de-tensioning it, not 6
    3) The hangblock and downtubes upper joints on Profi TL has things sticking out that can catch sail. Best to place some cover (like a towel) on that area before closing the wing so sail does not get caught in those areas and get punctured

    Excellent advice, Abid. I understand all of what you've said. Thanks for taking the trouble.
