That looks cool. Was the conversion from sloper to motorized easy with the boomerang? I keep hearing good things about the boomerang but never was interesting in it due to it being slope only.

8. my very first wing, the original Ele-Bee
9. Superfly Twin and SuperFly pusher
10. Superfly Tractor

Gouch, love those blue stars.
Dennis,

I like the look of the Ezipper mkII......any good? for my requirements anyway?

I don't like the look of the Ele-Bee too much especially the plastic motor mount...it looks kinda tacky!!

eZipper MKII is a good wing, but not a 48" wing. It's 36" and moves pretty fast, even at only SP400 setup. If you want a 48" wing that is similar, get the eRaider from the same company.

If you feel the need for something faster and more agile right from the start, I'd get either the MiniXE or the Devastator or the eZipper.

I honestly don't know what's available in the UK. I just happen to know that the Ele-Bee (x-ite) is very popular over there and readily available. Try contacting the manufacturers from the wings i mentioned and see if they have UK distributors or how much shipping would be...
