Here are a few pics of my old ultra light from back in the early 90s. My daughter Sarah is the little pink pumpkin sitting in the pilot seat lol. I had a Will's Wing 1991 supersport. The tricycle had a 407 Rotax which was kind of underpowered but still fun. My buddy Dave's rig had a 503 Rotax. There was an old timer that lived in Chelatchie Prarie WA that had a small private strip and a hangar on his farm and he loved to watch us do touch and go's. He'd let us fly anytime we wanted out of his property for free. No instrumentation on the trikes but we ran a trio cluster when soaring (unpowered) Altimeter, variometer and a handy little gadget we used called a thermal snooper. It would detect the warm air eddies around a thermal so you could locate it easier to "core it" since that was your primary source of lift unless you were near a cliff or steep hill to capture some ridge lift.
I actually started out soaring and then moved to an ultralight. I've never flown a conventional plane. I haven't flown in over 20 years. I do miss it but the older I get the more aware of my mortality I get. I want to see my grandkids grow up lol.
