How much does it cost and how fast is it? Looks really fun! You don't need a license if its under 1000 feet above the ground right?

If that is a Mini Max I have flown one of those for a friend. Scared the bajesus out of me! Took it around the patch for him at a local airport. I thought it was going to be cool. Well let me tell ya when I got in the air every bit of turbulence made it feel like the thing was going to fall out of the sky.

I took it around once, Jumped out, shook his hand, kissed the ground, and got the h@ll outta dodge.

My advice. Make absolutely sure that you do not fly that on a windy day as I did. It is pushed around quite easily and does not handle a crosswind very well. Fortunately the landing speeds are very low. (considering I land just about every day at 129 kts) So should the unfortunate "ground loop" happen theres usually no harm to plane or pilot.

Hey guys!

I have flown a similar MiniMAX with a little bit larger motor than this. One thing I did learn lis that you have to come in under power the flare and the drop of power are done at the same time. I have a quick silver MX as well and that is just as fun to fly just a little slower.

Altitude isn't a factor really under part 103. For an ultralight you could fly as high as 12500(if you feel comfortable there) there are other regs that limit you. Weight of the plane has to be less than 254lbs, max speed of 55 knots (approx 63MPH) and a stall speed of no more than 24 knots(approx 27.6 MPH) , and it can't be capable of carring more than 5 gal of fuel. These are just a few of the regs if you are interested I would agree with mike google FAR 103.
As far as the rude comment I'm sure it was out of fun!
Thanks guys for the comments
