MAVERICK 2 14.9 Meter (A True 103 Legal Ultralight)

Maverick 2 Legend ultralight trike 

Maverick 2 RT ultralight trike


 North Wing has exciting news about the popular Maverick single-place ultralight.  The design of both the trike and the wing has been enhanced to include features that benefit flight performance, improve set-up convenience, and more.

The new Maverick 2 trike frame has been extended to maximize storage space behind the pilot, enable additional fuel storage, camping equipment, and anything that fits in the space and maintains acceptable weight limits.
We also changed the folding design of the trike mast, so only the mast pivots just above the seat rail and now includes a spring-assisted mast as our Apache two-place trike has.  The new spring-assisted mast on the Maverick 2 reduces the effort required to lift the wing into position, reducing the effort required to lift from 83 lbs of wing to 15 lbs.

The Maverick 2 wing also 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 2 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 2, the perfect single-place ultralight from North Wing Design.

We are proud of our extremely comfortable seating, a must for long flights.  High ground clearance is another terrific feature for off-field landings.  We use only aircraft-grade aluminum tubing throughout the trike frame.
Aircraft hardware and fasteners are used on the Maverick.  The rear suspension uses a strong fiberglass pultruded axle with drag struts.  If you like to have a hand at building part of your trike, you may purchase the Maverick trike and wing without the engine, prop or gauges.

MAVERICK 14.9 Meter (A True 103 Legal Ultralight)
The Maverick is a
state of the art highly refined strutted ultralight. Some benefits of the strutted wing are:

  • No Kingposts
  • Less Drag
  • Fits in a hanger
  • Nicer handling
  • Easy to Ground handle

The washout sprogs gives the Maverick stability, so the top kingpost is no longer needed to support the reflex bridles.

The lightest handling wing yet-offering terrific soaring abilities.

Front Suspension / Steering

The Maverick has a rugged front fork and suspension system. The suspension (shocks) is of our own design, made up of elastomer spring material such as used on commercial aircraft and mountain bikes. You will appreciate the solid yet responsive feel of our trailing link system. Best of all, the whole fork assembly is made of a welded steel frame.
