  1. Skyschool do courses abroad and in the UK in the summer months so if you needed follow up instruction then its available in Wiltshire. I trained with Skyschool 10 years ago and kept my ground handling up to speed and did not need any follow up instruction. Skyschool also have loads of training videos out now so good to review when you cant fly or your launches are not perfect!
  2. ozee i have used them for 30 years both flexwing microlight and now paramotoring They do come up on ebay
  3. We had a local farmer who fired some firework rockets at a couple of pilots. He had a visit from the local police. We just don't fly over his farm anymore so not to wind him up.
  4. Hi I have set the trimmers so I get more feedback as I get use to the wing I will go back to no trimmers and see if it makes a difference.
  5. Thanks for the reply The float is not a problem it makes landing very easy just bleeding the speed off like flying an aircraft or microlight . But with my weight set up its great penetration
  6. I took delivery of a 24m Solo wing from Simon earlier in the Summer after having a test flight at Membury. I wanted a new wing that was easier to launch than my current Dudek WRC which is an excellent wing but design now 10 years + old. First impressions very light and easy to inflate but at first it felt no reaction to brake input on zero trim but that is because my WRC is that much heavier and slower to inflate. First few flights were reverse launches nice and simple but the wing does want to overtake you so a little brake and control required before turning. I just need to fine tune th
  7. I have a paramotor with small cage which turns a 110cm prop on a top 80 It was built by Bailey for a female pilot they made two. I have since upgraded to a miniplane so this is now a spare which i might sell let me know if your interested and I will give you more details Thanks Hadders
  8. try david broom at airplay see post above he is you best bet he was the last uk dealer.
  9. Thanks for the replies I flew yesterday in a strong breeze and used more trimmer and the two stage technique ie a little brake then bleeding the speed off until a final flare It was all very controlled and when the wind increased I could bleed the speed of and touch down as the wing slowed and not even had to take a step. Just walked the wing then applied power for another practise. Great fun. However, I have ordered a new Solo so will ask Simon which technique is best for this wing. Stay safe Hadders
  10. Hi Guys What trimmer setting do you use for landings ( I have a reflex wing) I have been using neutral or just open a bit similar to take off but I am thinking a little more trim out will give me slightly more speed and control nearer the ground especially in conditions where the wind speed drops very close to the ground. A bit like using ground effect in a conventional aircraft/microlight. Thoughts please
  11. I believe that they have ceased trading as my friend was the UK dealer. He was an old guy that finally retired Trust of use.
  12. thanks cas Personal question whats your weight? just for comparison
  13. Hi, I am thinking of buying an Eos 100 engine, does anyone have experience of this engine. It seems to be light weight and high powered for its size and well made. Good and Bad answers please. Thanks
  14. thanks guys have cleaned in stages just with warm water and a sponge looks much better
