  5. Always interested in flying sites I can park my motorhome at and fly, coast and a good pub is a bonus did this club ever take off?
  6. It seems that a few pilots have had serious problems with the Force II (and probably other wings) but not reported them. The BHPA incident reporting system has been replaced by a pan European system hosted by the European Hang Gliding and Paragliding Union (EHPU). https://ehpu-safetynetwork.org/plugins/form/235/en Please report incidents past and present, names are not published but it may help save lives and advise other pilots so that they do not make the same expensive and painful mistakes.
  7. As I have already stated in the safety matters thread, In my opinion the Force II is not fit for my purpose the wing is very efficient but seems to be very brake sensitive (e.g. ready to stall unexpectedly) at slow speed. I had two unexpected low altitude parachutal stalls on this wing and was very lucky to walk away with sprains bruises and damage to the paramotor.

  13. Paul Haxby should state is the UK Apco representative and dealer. I have 30 hours flying the Force 2 23 hours on a loan wing and 7 on the one in my video, this wing stalled on TWO occasions, the first time sinking into trees, the D lines also went slack on me in rough air (6 inches slack on right side when flying). Paul Haxby sold me the wing and I returned it to him as unfit for my use. I have discussed with Paul Haxby that it may be better to advice pilots of the Force II to take off on neutral trim to raise the flying speed. Comments on Paul Haxby Apco Force II Turn Against Torque Test video: It is unusual to have brakes flapping when flying low at (0:53) at very least brakes should be in your hands at normal flying position this would be at least 10 to 20cm lower than in your video. My machine is low hang point yours is high, we have different engines. I re-state this wing seems to be very brake sensitive (e.g. ready to stall) at slow speed. Note: If Flying the Apco Force 2 under the BHPA insurance scheme make sure that you have filled in and returned your Pilot’s Declaration: Uncertified Wings. About me: I have 30 hours on the Force 2 and over 500 hours on Apco wings, having owned and flown: Apco Sierra, Apco Thrust, Apco Thrust HP, Apco Force, Apco Lift, Apco NRG, Apco Force SP, Apco Force 2. In various places worldwide.
