Pretty Neat if you haven't seen this before
Could it tow a glider ?
I was interested in this when it first came out, but the price was high. I guess they stopped making them because Gene was going to retire and the fellow doing the welding got a better paying job. I wonder if they had any problems with them, like cracking in the aluminum tubes because of welding. I have always wondered if gussets and pop rivets could be used and still stay on weight. Anyway, I asked if they would be selling plans and was told no. Perhaps someone who owns one could reverse engineer it?
I always thought some of the features were great. The wide stance landing gear and the simplicity of a one piece folding wing. Thought the looks of the wing was goofy like a cartoon. I wouldn't fly an ugly plane as silly as that sounds. The price was crazy high for an ultra light in my mind.
I'm not sure what crazy high is these days when it comes to airplanes. Ready to fly ULs seem to run in the 20s.
