love it chris! was you pushing the bar out when trying to take off?
i normally get up abit of speed and then just pull the stick back and it lifts off?
it will take abit to come unstuck if no pushout depending on your angle of attack.

the added weight should only affect the trim speed really but i rememeber you said you was only runnung a small motor, what KV is it?

its impossible to misload a weightshift microlight like you can a regular plane,
when adding luggage the c of g needs to be right.. not so in a weightshift as the hangpoint is still the same,
all that will happen is the trike will hang more nose up or nose down depending on luggage position.

your trike should be the same but im wondering if removing the springs has changed this and the added weight in the front has made the aircraft nose heavy? needing full throttle to keep the nose up?
only way to change it would be to adjust the lengths of the arms or find some suitable springs.

have you played around with the hang point yet? dont worry about moving it but just do small movements at a time, id suggest maybe bringing it rearwards slightly

good work chris,

regards,mark
