I haven't owned or flown an ultralight since 1986. So what I'm saying is from very old rules and very old recall.
Back then, an ultralight was subject to all FAA rules. just because you didn't have a license didn't mean you were exempt from FAA rules/laws. Ultralights had an additional rule/law which stated that they were not allowed to fly over crowds and other populated areas. 'Crowds' being things, like school parks, sporting events (even small ones in school parks), parades, etc. I also believe we were not allowed to fly in controlled air space.
You would be wise to look this stuff up. Like I said, just because you don't need a license does not mean you don't have rules.
BTW, my ultra light was my most fun toy ever. I used to have a small tent and minimal supplies strapped under my seat. And yes, even back then, a long streaming scarf trailing behind you was a very bad idea.
The most fun was flying as high as I cared to and dead stick my way back down. The most nerve wracking was those damned white cattle egrets following me a good amount of time.
Stay safe and have a blast.
