    Katie,
    I think the C42 is a great training aircraft, just not a comfy tourer though !!! I know I did 8hrs solid in one once. Have to say that as I am going across to C42 Land on Friday where every fecker has a C42

    C-42s seem to be breeding at Chatteris. I fear I am corrupting flex wing pilots by taking them flying with me. I used to get a chance to fly from the back seat of a GT-450 as it's pilot regularly flew with me. But not anymore as he just gone and brought himself a C-42!

    The best time to learn to fly was 20 years ago. The second best time is now.

    Saw the original Tanarg at Popham some years ago and loved the trike (and five bladed prop), was going to purchase one but went fixed wing instead.
    Now back into flexwings I would like to visit Flylight to view the tanarg/bionix

    I'd vote for minimalism in microlighting. I'd say it is sport but not rest in a sofa. According my judgement a microlight should be comfortable not more as a cayak, montain skies, wind surfing, or a bicycle.

    If a touring craft is the call of the day, I feel comfort would be a priority, especially with two up.
    For local flying and some low level fun, comfort is not as important.

    Impressive flying if that is the sort of thing that you want to do. One thing to remember is that the Revo is 32kg heavier than a Tanarg or GT450.

    I am going to checkout the Revo when in Florida soon. I scheduled a flight. They have the Sport and Competition wings there currently. Though Competition performs very close if not at par with QuikR.

    Great stuff Cherian, make sure you take some pics and post back here. Would love to know how it flies.

    Hi Bob, I just talked to the instructor in Florida and asked him about this weight difference. He said that this info is mistaken and that his trike weighs 560 pounds empty and has most options in it. I have flown in a Tanarg briefly once only. Comfortable back seat.
