Tooooo much off topic comments.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Truly, just compare, If u want car driving license, How much costs, and for plane flying licence specially in India, what will be the cost?

A commom term " Only Pilot's children can only be pilot" as heard from my mom.

I have born in 1977 and in 1990, I have read a writings of Durba Bannerjee (First Lady Pilot I Think) that Bengal was the cheapest to become Pilot for scholarship and for behala aerodrum, But that totally outsourced. (I remember, I saw, everyday, at least 4-6 hours of fly of cessna till 1990/93. But afterwords, No fly till date. My home is only 5.5 KM from behala.

Now in Kolkata, instead of Pilot course, Only ad seen for Aircraft Maintenance course and Air-hostess training course (this is not essential as per my knowledge but triggers the wish to fly for business).

After 12th, seeing no hope, (being a middle class family) just started engineering with Govt. sponsored University and in front of me, fees got 10 times.

Afterward, I have lead construction site life, and realized the value of time to stay with family. Perhaps, that's the reason Harry Potter is the most enjoyable cinema to me.

Money and time for family both are required and well balanced. I got chance in Power Grid (2004) beating all from India and stood first, but not joined for higher study and time to family (Home sickness? 30% i think, but 70% responsibility as  an average indian) and decided to serve my native bengal and joined WBGovt.

After spending 12K days of my life, I realized,
there should be balance between money and family, and
Think small so that you can enjoy every moment of Life.


For the low spending (in terms on money and energy)and down to earth lifestyle, Indian Economy have not crashed like others and become the honeypot to businessman, I think. Thanks to our grandma's and grandpa's who told us to
1. Learn to live with minimum requirements, from Crow.
2. Learn Loyalties from Dogs.
3. Always work, dont think for return. (I think from Gita.)
4. Savings for future (from Ants).
... Etc. etc. Dont remember all now.

therefore, though i want to be a pilot to fly only, but for surroundings, it was not possible, but I am happy. Rather, I made models and flys in dream.

Just a ambient condition. want to taste, take any person, play popular songs of the time when (s)/he was 14-18, and best song you have ever hear, feel the difference, when he was damn busy.

So, If anyone give micro-lite, absolutely free, I would sell it and purchase Advanced Radio, Cordless Stereo Camera and goggles rather.

==================================================================
I can rather predict that RC items will be flooded in India, and most of the ready made build planes will be in the range (<3K) withen Oct 2011, and there will be more demand of Micro than large plane in turms of Quantity. Only a few old guy like me, can search for emery paper, wood, Glue etc, and made 90% professional finish plane with 10 times cost. (In 1995, Cheapest Digital Multimeter was Rs.300/- and now Rs.90/-)
=========================================================
Please though I have tried to to hart, but if anyone hart, I apologize for my remark in advance.

Very well said but, I beg to differ here - I am just 1 year younger to you - born in 1978 but, I am not 'old' at all.  I believe I am a 21 year old with 11 years of experience.

I have just started aeromodelling and I'm loving it.

I guess the old adage of "The grass is always greener on the other side" is true no matter where you come from.  Yes America may look great when seen through the eyes of some movie director, but behind the scenes the gloss and glamour fades very quickly.  Many parts of America are dying, mainly due to big business finding it cheaper to manufacture overseas. Here in Australia the Chinese with their new found wealth are buying our farming land and businesses and should it continue we'll be looking at China to buy fill our stomachs in another 20 years.

Most countries are suffering the world wide downturns and money is starting to become scarce. Talk to any ordinary citizens in any country and you'll hear the negativity. Our rights are being removed, we're told what we can and can't say and laws are being made which many can't abide. Costs to live are spiralling, electricity prices have already gone through the roof and we're being told it's due to climate change. When electricity goes up everything goes up and there's no easing in sight.

See I can be truthful ad negative as well. I'm living on a disabled war veteran's pension and if I felt like it I could tell you how hard that is.  But I wont, simply because it's better to look at the positive things. If I preach doom and gloom you'll walk away miserable as well, but if I concentrate on the positive then it won't leave you feeling sorry or bored (hopefully)

It can be hard to be smiling all day, but when someone asks you how you are, tell them you feel great and watch the reaction. We get too used to people telling us how hard their life is and how bad the Government is, be different and tell them you've never felt better, who knows it could be contagious. Even though my wife and I live on a lowly pension we have never starved and we own out own home and car.  I just ordered a Xiaomi Mi Quadcopter with all the trimmings so I'm not exactly broke. I also have a house full of RC equipment and desperately need someone to help me fly, drive and float them all, plus build the planes I don't have the room for.

Life is great when you don't talk about the negative things and as the old saying goes,"Smile and the world smiles with you" This is what everyone regardless of age, origins or beliefs should be doing, this world would be a much better place. Now altogether,  SMILE

One little thing the OP may have forgotten.  It's a second hand unit and there's no knowing what it's been subjected to. An old friend of mine who used to fly me on his 2 seater ultralight sold his very cheaply, I almost bought it myself, but he refused to let me. He told me air frames are only good for so many flights and after that they start to show cracks in many places. The shocks from landings take their toll and tiny invisible cracks will form in load bearing parts especially at joints.

He told me his unit hadn't been well looked after and although the motor worked flawlessly it would be better to remove the motor and put it in a new frame. He did end up selling it, but a week after it sold the new owner nosed it into the ground and wrote it off. It was pilot error and not a problem with the frame. Luckily the owner survived with no serious damage, the ultralight was scrapped. So just maybe that "Cheap" Ultralight could well have been in constant use and not such a bargain after all.

Hi Taksh, you say salaries are less in India, may I ask Less than where?  Do you actually know what people are being paid in other countries and are you talking about the same job with the same number of working hours and similar extras such as overtime rates weekend and public holiday rates.  Whether a car is supplied, medical insurance and sick leave etc?

Comparing wages is rather hard to do successfully, especially with so many things to factor in. Personally I've rarely considered wages when applying for a job, I much prefer whether or not I'm going to be happy working there. If I'm not happy then no amount of money is going to keep me there. Possibly that's the reason I've spent a large percentage of my working life working for myself and it may be strange to a newcomer to the workforce, but when I have been self employed I worked 2 or 3 times harder.

I have no idea what the average wage is in India, but then in my opinion whenever I hear the term "Average Wage" I always think there must be a lot of people earning a lot of money, because I've never come close to the average. The only exception to that was working in the UK on the F15 jet fighter. After only being there for 3 weeks I was earning more than many who had been there for 5 years.

Just for interests sake I looked up the average annual wage for a factory worker in India according to your Government and it's on average Rs 168,000 or $ 2572.00 USD.  Here in Australia the same worker would be paid an annual wage of $26,580 USD or Rs 1690767.

See what I mean? it's impossible to compare. I can't believe there would be a difference of 10 fold. With the wages in India it isn't stated whether that's a flat rate and for how many hours. The Australian figures are for a 40 hour week (8 hours per day) and no weekend work, plus overtime and penalty rates aren't factored in. I can only imagine what your cost of living is and that's the big cruncher when it comes down to it.

If you're interested here's a link to the cost of living in Australia with prices for food and other normal outlays for the average Aussie.  https://www.numbeo.com/cost-of-living/country_result.jsp?country=Australia

I hope it's OK to post links here. Sorry, I've strayed from the original post, but perhaps it gives you some idea of how much things can differ. I just hope I haven't upset you too much.  Perhaps you will become an Aussie yourself, we have many people from India living here and I'm very proud to call one family my friends. I can't recall exactly where they came from, but one thing I keep hearing is they are all very happy to have made the move. So happy in fact they now have their entire family with them, Grandmother, Grandfather and a few uncles and Aunts as well. The front of their house looks more like a used car yard when everyone's home :-)

So if you really want to own an ultralight, perhaps living here could be one way to do so. :-) If you have ambition, like the outdoors and don't mind a beer and BBQ you'll fit right in. :-)  Stu
