Hi all, I signed up because I’m interested in getting an f150 lightning for two reasons
1) I’ll be buying property in high desert that is undeveloped. Also my partner and I do a fair bit of camping these days on undeveloped trails and blm land And 2) I’m looking to get into hang gliding as a hobby. These things are 16 to 18 feet long and 1 ft wide when packed for transport but I think this would be a good vehicle for that and transporting guests and our dog in the back seat. An SUV would be a good option as well though.

Somerging like this..

are there any hang gliders here that might have some experience to share? This is a huge jump for me as I daily a Tesla model 3 and have mostly driven cars.

im also open to an ev or even hybrid bronco should fire make one but I suspect the longer f150 will be best.

I hate to be the bearer of bad news. But unless you reserved your lightning when they took reservations you are not going to be getting one for at least 2-4 years. You can definitely find one for an insane markup for sale but I wouldn't do that and walk off the lot with -$40K equity. But if you have the money and wanna do it that's your choice.

If you want to buy off the lot, look across the country for a truck you can buy at MSRP, buy a ticket to wherever it is, and drive it home. It will be much cheaper than paying ADM.

I’ll be waiting a few years one way or another so it’s all good.
