25mph trimmed in // Efficient and safe
35mph trimmed out // more fuel burn, more dynamic recovery
40mph trimms + bar // poring fuel away, hard to hold for long periods
The Qubik seems like a reasonably quick wing.
I am going to assume you only have "efficiency" to gain in the most part on a hotter wing unless you are cool with spending hours on full bar (very uncommon)
I imagine the Kougar 3 will be more efficient trimmed out than your Qubik and you get +7mph
Boring XC's for me are anything above 500ft but low and slow has its own set of problems
I currently fly a Qubik 21, very high - possibly over the weight range depending.
Comfortable flying, launching and landing in all conditions from complete nil to stronger, smooth to rougher.
I've come to realise I find XC boring and spend most of my flying throwing it around (with purpose and technique), foot dragging, wing overs, etc.
Shorter "fun" flights over longer trips.
I'm comfortable with all of the above manoeuvres but as always never stop learning and always working to improve.
I'm looking at what wing to get next. Looking for something fast (being overloaded on the 21 is fun and certainly not a challenge) with less roll stability (I want something that will roll and dive more easily).
I'm early in the process so looking for suggestions of wings to start looking into... not loyal to any particular brand.
What ideas/suggestions do you all have?
Might get the parts next week. they ordered a crankshaft last week they had just changed one on another machine.
started to clean up the frame and redo the fuel lines. checked the carb and it looks like it was overhauled recently. I will reset the carb to factory settings because it was obviously not running right.
Welcome to the skies Steve, an old timer here.
Sounds like you have a had a really great introduction to the joys of paramotoring, keep up the blog as it's always interesting to read of others experiences.
Sorry to hear of your fathers rapid demise but take it in good heart that something good has followed.
