  • Electric version of the ATOS trike called the EGO

    I really like this video. Highlights the electric motor version (HPD 10 rated at 10 Kw => 13.5 hp). Very aerodynamically clean trike. Great battery life when shutting down the motor to soar. The ATOS VR has one of the best glide ratios of all rigid wings that could be flown on a light trik...

  • The REV

    I had an amazing opportunity to fly the Rev the day before we left for OshKosh! Truthfully, I had never flown a single surface wing and the lightest trike I ever flew before was an Airborne Outback with a SST. So pretty much nothing light, let alone ultralight. I had no idea what to expect. The ...
