  1. It finally here, I am really pleased, something we have been waiting for and I think maybe a worlds first? The first ever oil specifically produced for paramotors, as in not a motorbike or gokart or chainsaw oil but one which is formulated for paramotoring with our fairly unique style of engine running. This is designed specifically to suit the Nitro and Tornado engines. A year in testing and finalising the formula. It is designed to give ultimate protection while also decreasing the carbon deposits. What better oil to use than the manufacturers own formula, it takes the guess work out of it.
  2. Fly what you enjoy. Thats my answer. Same old discussions, for every point of view there is another alternative point of view. as an example, Steve above says Parajet has the advantage of being able to choose the best motors. I could argue that nitro and tornado are the best and they can't choose those. lol. but in more serious terms, yes for sure with Parajet you have a wider choice of engines, but really I see only the Moster variants are viable choices. That can be good and bad, as when it comes to warranty, with Air Conception it is one company that covers all, with other manufacture
  3. my personal insurance for flying a paramotor in Malaysia and I included electric unicycle in Singapore come to £42, to add the paramotor for luggage insurance would bring it to £1200, so it was carry at your own risk, I took the £42 medical cover. For extra protection I put a GPS tracker in my paramotor in the case, and a tile. it was nice to see the tile ping up while sitting on the plane, knowing my bag was on board.
  4. I thought I should share a little video of that trip. It starts with my hotel arrival and the first time I open my suitcase, then some clips of the adventure. Its really opened up the world to flying.
  5. Hi Peter, Sounds like a little carb tuning is needed, it will help you smooth out that mid range point you want to fly at. Maybe just tweaking the high and low screws is enough. Base setting is 1 turn out on low and high. Sometimes high is 1:10. setting the low to 50 or 55 and the high to 1- 1:05 will help. If all this sounds like a foreign language, seek help.
  6. Lets start at the beginning. On my Air Conception I feel the torque is very well managed, any AC pilot I think would agree to that. I don't need to cross my legs to fly straight, the torque is well managed just like other Paramotors with similar style hang points, MacFly, Parajet Maverick, Miniplane etc, the latest off set S bars all work very well. I got curious about more anti-torque when I saw more people talking about scout, nirvana and the netting mounted lamels, still sceptical myself and not wanting things attached to my netting, I made my own design. Developed them with some test
  7. just a single strap across the machine from each side boot latch. Hold it in and down.
  8. The trip ends with a city flight through Kuala Lumpur. This is one I have done before but this year was a little different. It was a longer flight starting further out of the city and being my 2nd time I was more relaxed and noticed more lading options. A carefully decided route and check points kept things marginally safe considering the city flight through tall buildings. It was a 1 hour flight all in.
  9. This next video was a day where I got to fly barefoot and water drag, beach drag, just playing, flying up and down the same length of coast about 10km of shallow water and soft sand and no one to annoy.
  10. So I have flown Malaysia before and opted for an expensive Fedex service to guarantee my motor arrival for the week of flying planned. This time, 2nd go around I feel more relaxed and prepared. Deciding to use the new Air Conception Nitro Split, which is basically a split frame version of a standard nitro paramotor. The big deal is, its just enough that it fits in a standard suitcase, it doesn't stand out, it doesn't get pegged as sports equipment and went straight on the plane no questions asked except that I have removed all li-po batteries from by luggage. I chose a pull start machine so it
  11. how long do you idle? The vibration is always more on a lighter machine as there is not the weight in the cassis to smooth it out. I have had various machines over the years and actually the moster in the AC frame had the most vibration, it was smoother in the zenith but then thats a 6.5kg chassis with a 1.2kg helix prop vs a 2.5kg chassis and a 600g prop. All that said the race2 frame has changed the geometry some what, so while standing on the ground you can feel the engine, in flight with curved back bars the harness is more floating in position rather than leaning on the frame, r
  12. Notch, its an organised tour, a group of us 11 in total I think. Transfer KL to Kuala Terrenganu in North East. Then we fly north to Penarik and back, then next day to Dungun, each day a different hotel with local flights, to Chukai, to Balok. transfer to KL, fly through the city of KL where trip ends. I then catch a flight on to Singapore for 2 days to ride EUC before heading home via KL. Message me, maybe you can tag on to the KL city flight, some one joined last time just for that flight, I can give you the organisers name to contact, from Lankawi flight park.
  13. I am off to Malaysia flying down the coast, hotel to hotel. Thats why the fuss with suit cases. Changed a few things this paramotor and it is now under 18kg
  14. well it fits, just in places and room to spare in other. I just put it all in zipped it up and weighed it. Nitro Split, complete with frame prop, fuel tank etc. plus a reserve parachute, 25.6kg including the case. Later with extra padding and maybe a spare prop it will be under 30kg 32" Suitcase, 12" deep
  15. I bought an XL poly plastic case on ebay. It all fits in but not all at the same time. The longest part is the outer hoop 83cm, my case corner to corner is 80cm because the corners are rounded and the trolly wheels impact on space. Opposite corner to corner top to bottom side to side the curved hoop sections fit, I will struggle with engine, its doable but would rub. I am thinking to try another case. I just need 3cm and it will all go in one normal looking case, easily and padded. I think a case without 4 wheels would give extra space. My aim is to have it all in one, wing, motor etc and
