Default Ultralight Trike Flying

Hey I was wondering if anyone on here has ever flown an ultralight trike. They look like they would be really fun. I was wondering how safe they are and how much they cost to buy.

I think of the quote(often from J-3 cub pilots also) is that "It doesn't go fast enough to kill you."

The quote should be "It just barely fast enough to kill you"
