Powered Hang Glider with Hirth enginePowered hang glider with V-17 wing and 50 hp for good performance

Features: Very easy and very confidence inspiring to fly. Heavily padded seats for long comfortable flights. Machined parts for all joints & couplings (No welding) and 8 inch wheels & tyres for rugged operation on both tarmac and un prepared airfields make it easy to land anywhere.


As an entry level machine, there is nothing basic about the Kudos V-17. Unique “TLS” trike to wing de - rig system makes lifting the wing onto the trike very light work.


Easy adjustment on front forks for pilot leg length for the taller pilots are a standard feature on all Ace Aviation’s trikes.

High build and finish quality that we are renowned for.
