The charter of rec.aviation.ultralight is:
The rec.aviation.ultralight newsgroup is for discussion of all topics
relating to the operation, construction and maintainance of ultralight
and microlight aircraft, powered hang-gliders, powered parachutes,
etc. Discussion of fixed wing or non-fixed wing ultralight aircraft is
encouraged as well as light aircraft that are not FAR 103 compliant.
There are now fifteen separate subgroups on rec.aviation; if the charter
above doesn't match the content of the article you're posting (or you're
following up), please consider one of the other groups as a more

A common question is "what should I do if an article spans the charters of
two or more groups?" The answer is cross-posting. If you have an article
which clearly crosses the boundaries of several groups, you should post a
single copy of the article to all of the groups. Don't post
separate copies to each group. Most modern newsreaders will display the
article exactly once to the reader -- in the first group in which it is
encountered and read.
If you feel that the replies should be directed to a subset of the groups
to which you are submitting your post, be sure to include a line of the
form "Followup-to: groupname" in the header of your message. See the
header of this message for an example.
If you are replying to a cross-posted article and your reply is germane to
only a subset of the original groups, please ensure that you check the
Newsgroups: line to remove unnecessary groups. If the reply is germane to
all the groups in which the article was originally posted, try to ensure
that all the groups are listed in the Newsgroups: line. Some older
newsreaders cause a reply to go only to the group which is currently being
Use cross-posting sparingly. If an article "90% belongs" in one group and
"10% belongs" in another, post it only to the first group.
