New Trike

 I have finally given up on foot launching in no wind situations. So I bought a trike, but I feel after watching enough videos and dry run with wing , I feel I can confidently launch .  I haven’t had any formal trike training, what is there in class that I need to fly . Important is set up  and layout. Anything else.  Ridiculous to have to pay another 2500.00 to 3500.00 for trike training. Your thoughts ?  Be gentle

I agree completely.

Although I have no high regard for the antics of Capt. Kurt Fister as mentioned elsewhere on this site, he does have a useful if unnecessarily long video on u tube about setting out the wing for a trike launch. It is certainly the way that I do it and so far all ok.

A lot cheaper and more convenient than any further tuition.
