Love that plane. I used to fly ultralights and powered parachutes. The parachute was the wing or lifting body. You could still kill yourself in one though. Parachuting into an oak tree at 26mph is still a bug on the windshield situation.

Funny how your personal experience dictates your thoughts. You guys immediately though of the yard tractor, but since I grew up around aviation, I immediately thought of the Piper Cub.

I even have an R/C model of it I fly occassionally. It's a sweet little plane best reserved for calm days...

While the Cub is a great plane I prefer the good olde recoup. Our flight club had one during the 60's and wish I had had the $$ then to purchase it when the club decided to move on. Oh well
