Do you find it "self steers" enough that you don't need the foot steering and only use the wing brakes?

What I don't understand in these times of "lighter is good", why Parajet have gone so heavy with the trike. Moving it, handling it, getting to the take-off point are all made more difficult. Plus, it looks like it adds quite some weight to the all-up total. Why are they not going "super light" .

Here is mine, with Nitro 200 sat on it. I used the super soft tyres as they work so well on every terrain. Hang points are unaltered and hence weight shift steering remains the same. Hang point is also unaffected as the trikes balance point alone is in line with the riser attachment points.. This trike can be picked up in one hand...well one finger really! :)

It seems to work fine on takeoff and taxiing with the self steering (has about 10 degrees) if you catch it right can steer with the wing over to one side or the other

The Falco is really a tandem trike you can fly solo so would have to be made strong = more weight.. MacFly mini trike 10.6 kg  42.6kg with a Thor 250 or 31.6kg with a Thor 80
