It should be noted that this is not a training video. In fact flying a trike outside the manufacturers limitations is now illegal and stupid. This stunt should not be attempted by any one. This stunt was performed by an aerobatic hang glider pilot with a specially modified ultralight trike and is extremely dangerous. Loosing airspeed or any other factor will cause the trike to tumble and break causing serious injury or death to the pilot.
Today, exceeding the manufactures limitations in an FAA weight-shift control aircraft is illegal. This clip shows the capabilities of trikes that have been modified and flown by stunt pilots.
