I just spend 45 min trying to convince someone on the phone that Moster engine will be too big for him at 148 lb. Please trust me, Moster is very powerful engine that is good for BIG guys. If you are under 175 lb, forget it! If you buy it, you will regret it. Its so powerful that even at idle it will give you enough thrust so you will be flying level and it will shake because you will not be running it in the appropriate RPM range above 50 %
Also I often hear “I would like to foot launch, trike and do tandem and all this with one set of gear”. It is impossible! If you try to purchase something that will do it all, it will be heavy and hard to foot launch in low wind and not powerful enough for tandem – which is illegal anyway unless you are an instructor or fly another fully licensed PPG pilot.
Just focus on one thing and one thing only – then you have a chance to enjoy this sport.
