Lazair II by Tony W
Anybody here have any experience with this little plane? I know it was originally sold as a kit but the company is gone. Are plans available? Is it worth trying to build one or are there better options these days? Tony

Twin electrics by jan olieslagers[_2_]
How does one charge the battery in a twin? The logical idea seems to have the battery connected to the bus, and both alternators supplying current (and thus power) to the bus. However alternators have a regulator, mostly built-in, that regulates the field so as to produce a constant voltage even...

Where did they go? by Flash
About maybe 7 or 8 years ago, there was a good bit of ultralight activity on this forum, as well as the ultralight groups. Some guy named Julian (I STR) moved to Henderson, NV, and had a forum of sorts regarding U/L. Anybody have any idea of what became of that bunch? Thanks,
