  1. We are a UK importer of Icaro, and we stock Icaro Solar X, and Icaro Scarab. After we tested the TZ, we found it not to fit very well, in comparison to the other helmets they make, and from feedback from others. So as MicroAvionics, we only stock helmets we are happy to sell, therefore I suggest if you want a TZ, then try first.
  2. Yes, probably one of a group of about 5 from around Belper.
  3. Oh yes, I remember this one and our German importer did speak to us. Maybe you could buy a midland radio or you can make your own jack plug converter should we provide a lead to a 3.5mm plug. Just an idea, you could have Bluetooth fitted, then you could call your wife.
  4. Hi Lee, Eddie@ MicroAvionics here. We can connect Sena 20 & 30's to our system. The only thing we cannot do it fit a BT intercom for 2 way chat inside our headset. Personally I don't like the Sena/BT intercoms, so many intermittent issues and range is sometimes woefully inadequate and not as stated by the manufacturers. One recent and well known client only had 400m range on a Sena kit that was meant to broadcast upto 2km. My pennies worth is stick with a radio, but I understand there are other needs, which is fine.
  5. Hi Dave. Eddie @ MicroAvionics here. We can connect 2 pin Motorola into our system. If you want your secondary connector changing, then let us know and we will have that sorted super quick.
  6. We usually supply and fit the headsets to the helmet. But in your case it is a self fit. There are many different bolt sizes or fixing systems, so for self fit we just provide one nut and bolt. Usually the M6 bolt fits the majority of helmets but sometimes you need M5.
  7. If you want to use two radios at the same time, then the master radio uses the PTT on the headset. THe secondary radio used the radio's PTT. This is our standard system, however, we can supply a cable that connects to an externally wired PTT. There is a muting system on the headset, so the master radio will mute tha audio from the secondary radio.
  8. Eddie from MicroAvionics here. A late reply fo you, but the Yaesu radios are the best airband to go for. FTA 250L is a great small compact and would probably be my choice.
  9. Eddie from MicroAvionics here. I'm glad you like your new PM100 headset, For sure you will enjoy the features... there are plenty. Personally I like the Stereo music, but others like the duplex audio recording and the fact that you can configure the headset for virtually any radio with the internal switches. Enjoy!!
  10. Hello Fray, I am Eddie Cartwright, owner of MicroAvionics UK LTD. Most of our dealers in the US are for Ultralight, so best you speak to us directly, then we can have our importer send you a headset once we have found what you need. First I need to know if you want helmet mount headset, this would connect to a helmet like Icaro. If you need a helmet, then please give me your head size and I will make a few recommendations. We offer MicroAvionics helmet, Icaro Solax X or Scarab and Plusmax helmets. You mention 3.5mm audio lead for action cam. We can offer a fixed wire or a wire that has a small plug that will disconnect when not in use. You also have the choice of Bluetooth for stereo music and telephone. Any queries, then message me here or eddie@microavionics.co.uk Regards Eddie
  11. Trevor, I've got plenty of PM100 BT headsets! All new of course and you can order from one of our dealers or from our web site with a shiny new Plusmax, Icaro or MicroAvionics helmet. https://www.microavionics.com/paramotor-ssdr-headsets.html Regards Eddie
  12. RocknRotor. Hi, Eddie from MicroAvionics here, we manufacture headsets and helmets. Most people user 2m band or PMR, airband about 10%. If you want to fly into airfields, then you will definitely need airband and must be a latest 833 version (which we sell from £199). We manufacture the MicroAvionics PM100 headset. This allows connection of any radio, and you may want to consider using 2m band for general flying and chit chat, then for those flights that you go through airfields or land at them, you can connect an airband radio to the headset. It is also possible to connect 2 radios at any one time to the PM100. This may be advantageous if you want to speak to the other PPG pilot on 2m band. We also add Bluetooth into the headset for stereo music and telephone if required. The other poster is correct, you 'should' have an operators license for airband, and I would urge you to get this. It's quite easy and can be done in a few evenings training followed by a test (verbal and theory). Most GA airfields can put you in contact with an examiner to sort this. I have to point out that it is illegal to use 2m, PMR in the air as it's not approved as an airband rig. To be legal you would use airband with an operators license and rig licence. However, PPG and PG have been using 2m and PMR for many years and all my friends who fly PPG use 2m. 2m band will give you the best performance.

  13. Hi Scott If upi emailed before Friday, then your email has not arrived, and please send again. From your message we would need to see the radio technical manual, as we have never seen this radio before. Just a comments, why not go for an Icom A6E? Regards Eddie
  14. Hi Eddie from MicroAvionics here. Paramotor headsets need a high quality microphone to try and remove the amount of noise that is created from the paramotor. Most probably the route cause is a low quality microphone. However, if you have electronic noise that is created by the engine, then you would need to fit a resistive spark plug. If I can help any further, then drop me an email at eddie@microavionics.co.uk
