Default Re: ultralight/moped anyone?

consider the following weight to hp ratios:

Piper Cub: 19 lbs/hp
Grob G109 (motorglider): 21lbs/hp

so if our engines produce 2-3 hp, you might get a 50 lbs glider in the air

Whatever you decide, do NOT try to teach YOURSELF to fly in an UNTESTED aircraft. Test pilots have thousands of hours and extensive special training.
You gotta be smarter than the tool you use.
