First Time,

I admire your enthusiasm! Don't let that go away.

We had a gang of ultralight guys that hung out at the airport in the 1990's. There was a purple and white Mini-Max in the group.
The Mini-Max is the shoulder-wing father of the Hi-Max.

That thing flew great. It had a Rotax 447 and that was plenty of power. It must have been owned by half the guys at one time
or the other and each owner put about 100 hours on it. I know two owners who taught themselves to fly in it although I don't
advocate that.

I don't know where it is now but I've asked about it and they just say it's still flying. I'd bet it's probably just worn out.
