The Maverick 3 wing has been improved, featuring a strutted airframe instead of the older kingpost and wires design that added drag and reduced flight performance. We have increased the load rating of the wing, from 550 gross to 650 gross by a new airframe. The increased load rating is especially helpful for pilots who like to fly on floats. The Maverick 3 wing has another feature for convenient travel or storage, the ability for the wing to fold back while attached to the trike. Refer to the photos for examples of the new improvements on the Maverick 3, the perfect single-place ultralight from North Wing Design.
It is very important to us to offer you the best wing we can make. We could use tubing that costs less, but we choose to have our own tubing produced for specific main spars. We also could buy cheaper sail cloth; again, we choose to purchase the best.
We use all aircraft hardware and materials tested to required aircraft strength.
