    This is a book I just got by Herbert Beaujon,Herbert designed 7 simple amazing ultralights and I have done my online research to see if anyone has built and flown any of this Ultralights called beajon enduro, flybike,minimac and mac .07
    .....but I couldn't find any pic or vid of any these ultralights in flight,these planes were "the bomb" in the 1970s,so have you seen any of them in flight?

    Ultralight state of the art in the 1970s, when people were thrilled to hop the length of the runway, is marginal by today's standards.
