  1. The Report'Air 24 is more lifty than the ReAction 29 if that helps.
  2. I moved from the ReAction 29 to a Report'Air 24. I like it a lot but it does suffer with the slightly sluggish Dudek inflation characteristic. I am basing this on the fact that you need a good breeze to reverse launch, same as with the ReAction whereas from what I have read some of the newer wings inflate really easily. I haven't tried any other wings myself. All up I am around 125kg. My ReAction has 318 hours on it and the value is only what someone is willing to pay for it, which I think is next to nothing as pilots want newer wings with greater speed, for one.

    I have three folding camper chairs, similar to this one, that are surplus to requirements. FREE to PMC members. If I bring them to the Coast Run does anyone want them? I cannot take them back with me as I have onward travel.
  7. There are a number of interesting places that are English Heritage sites, there are 3 sites that are all within 3 1/2 miles of the fly-in. https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/trethevy-quoit/ There is also Restormel Castle that is south of Bodmin, about 11 1/2 miles from the fly-in. https://www.english-heritage.org.uk/visit/places/restormel-castle/ There is Bodmin and Wenford railway just to the east of Bodmin if you like steam trains. https://bodminrailway.co.uk/the-railway/
  8. Oh not many land out options there Andy.
  9. Good luck with that, I'll post a longer answer later. You'll need an airband license to use an airband radio.
  10. I've been doing this a long time, here's my take for what it's worth. I started my training under the BMAA syllabus, so it was essentially derived from the microlight syllabus but with differentiation to suit a paraglider type wing environment. I wasn't interested in learning to paraglide, I just wanted motorised flight so it suited me fine. If you want to just fly PPG then got to a trainer that offers direct PPG training, such as Paramotor Training (here), CMParamotors or UKPPG.
  11. All the A's, as in hold the riser (webbing) part.
  12. 'A couple of weeks between flights' is all too common, I'm retired but sometimes the weather just doesn't play ball. It's great to read of your continuing evolution into an experienced pilot, I can choose to fly anytime but don't always fly when the conditions are good as other things are happening. Getting a balance is great and I would rather be extending my flying till I'm no longer capable than getting every last flight in the log. Enjoy!
  13. Brilliant Rich, good one.
