What do you get when you cross an airplane with a hang glider? The most sensational craft on three wheels.

Maybe it's that the minuscule plane I'm flying is almost entirely obscured by just two sets of legs (mine and my instructor's). Maybe it's that not a pane of glass or sheaf of steel separates us from the sky beyond. Or maybe it's simply the glaring lack of aeronautical controls in what passes for the cockpit. Whatever the reason, I can't believe this bare-bones contraption stays aloft, or that I'm the one flying it.
