It’s called the Red Goat air chair, and it pretty much is what you would expect from an aircraft named as such. See it gravity-launch from the cliffs of Torrey Pines, California.

Great video clip.
Mike Sandlin has designed and build a series of ultralight gliders with names like BUG, GOAT and PIG. Mike has made all the drawing available for free download online. For more information check out this site, http://m-sandlin.info/

Looked like he missed a collision with that hang glider by about 30 feet.

The Red Goat looks to me like a good candidate for electric power.

If you go on his site, he has a bi-plane that was designed with power in mind.
