My second ultralight was an Eagle. It had been brought to Peru by its designer Larry Newman
to make a The American Sportsman tv film about flying with condors in the Colca Valley. It was not worth the cost of shipping it back to the US, so he left it in Peru, where it passed through a couple of hands, unflown, before coming into my possession for $1500.
It was later model than Gordon's, powered by the 30hp Cuyuna 430R, necessary to fly at the high altitudes where the film was made. Had to teach myself to fly it, but once mastered it was a delight. My party piece was to land it engine and hand off, flapping my arms, into a 5m dia circle on the oiled sand runway. Not difficult, as the elevator was controlled by cords to swing seat, which could be displaced by hooking my feet under the nosewheel crossbar and flexing my knees.
