    Slots in cages...why?

    I'm guessing you have a low hang point with a closer to nuetral thrust angle? That would be a new underwear flight.

    I fitted primer bulb on the frame ‘ just behind harness pocket ‘ give a few pumps and it floods the motor ‘ haven’t tried it at WOT though . cas .

    how old is too old ?

    In fareness you can't fall from the sky in a paramotor...the safety chute is already out anyway! You can be in a forced landing though...

    For comparison, 2 stroke motors on Motorcycles and scooters for example can last thousands of hours. Of course, you can't fall from the sky on those.

    Or switch the On/Off switch to Off, on a Bailey motor.

    Or block the air intake hole, or pinch the petrol line. SW

    Pull spark plug lead off. You get electric shock for a moment, but not too bad.
  14. Just curious, this hasn't happened to me. You should always test the kill switch before flight to make sure it works. What do you all do to then power off the motor?

    Children need to be looked after... Not pilots SW

    Training and BHPA

    The pg world is even more divided by the BHPA. I can see THEIR point but they are a bit OTT. By banning non BHPA pilots from slopes what do.they achieve? Well, I guess they control quality on the slopes and so protect permissions but given the bell curve distribution of skill levels and aptitudes it's a tough call. A non BHPA trained pilot could be a lot better than a bad BHPA pilot. But who would know? Thats why I stopped pg flying...too many people, too variable a skill set. As a professsional pilot I do expect a certain mind set, maybe unfairly, but I really dont want some.doofus. killing me. When I went to the bore fly-in with my sons we were amazed by the lax attitudes and rather APPARENT gash attitude to airstrip control. BUT we were also deeply impressed by the general safety mindedness. So we concluded that what we were seeing was not gash attitudes but a lot of decent pilots having al ot of safe fun by knowing how to Have fun safely, knowing what corners can safely be cut. We came away VERY impressed by PMC pilots to be honest AND WE REALLY WANTED TO JOIN IN. We xouldntntell who was BHPA and who wasn't. Conclusions? Draw your own.

    Thingy file updated as it was a bit on the small side. Screwdriver is a bit harsh on paint, maybe I´m being a bit of a tart but I´m very fussy with that sort of stuff Anyhow happy with the final part and it will go in the Parajet tool bag.

    None of the Above as i don't own a V3 or Smoke and i'm not an Arsonist so don't carry a lighter

    Special Tool

    I used to just use a flat head screwdriver and just pressed the flat head (sideways) with my thumb.

    Special Tool

    Got it My fingers are to fat to press them below the depth for an easy disassemble. Normally I´m looking for something lying around to press it and decided to make a ´tool´ with a tag to keep in the cage bag. If you have a mate with a printer its a 30 min print. Dave
  25. Thanks Richard. Much appreciated. Will hopefully be in touch at some point in the future.
