I was at lake havasu a while ago and I saw this guy flying in a thing that looked like a flying go-kart with a parachute holding it up.  He was flying it over the lake too!  Anyways it looked cool as hell!  Does anyone know what those are called?

They are a genre of aircraft called ultralights.

Very cool - very dangerous.

Thanks, I found the specific one I saw.  It is called a powered parachute.  They say they are the safest ultralight....
