I have just got my hang glider rating and now want a powered harmless for it. Mosquito, wasp, booster, doodlebug or WHY.

I know its not strictly PPG but it is SPHG !

i have a mozzie a10 with twin tanks,spare skids etc.what wing r u thinking of useing.....

Airwave Calypso. I am not sure about the prone/supine decision??? I find prone uncomfortable but I have only just started HG so might get used to that. Supine looks tricky getting your legs over the bar?? But more comfortable for distance and easier to set up a flight deck? Is your Mos for sale?

the calypso is a good first glider but unless u change all of the rigging wires u cant use it with power.u would be looking at around £400 to change them.u need a discovery 195 the keel will be shortened already and no need to change the rigging wires the perfect first floater for flphg.i had a calypso and was thinking of useing it but the cost of changing the rigging was more than the glider is worth..flying with power is very different to free flight,go on to the flphg forum u will get all the help and info u need .ref what glider etc.putting ur legs over the bar on the doodlebug is easy.it is the t.o and landing u must master. i wouldnt sell my mozzie for less than £900 i have twin tanks/spare skids etc.iwould sugest u have some power training or u might be in for a shock.flylight.or lightflight r worth ringing,,cheers//

thanks for your help Jock. you are right about the calypso for power, shame. So I will have to look for a combo. 900 seems to be the right price for a second hand unit, they all seem to be about that price. and about the same for a wing?

I will try the forum and numbers you suggest.
