  1. I will probably either change holder of LED to face to right for better viewing. I am waiting to see if my very basic soldering and logic works I may using your idea if I find that my components work. I did not spend a great deal on this lol. Do you find the photoresistor copes ok. My logic is for it just to be there as a reminder if fuel burn ends up being higher than planned.
  2. Update Never rely on tech. A GPS is great but not a replacement for map or good knowledge off area you are travelling. Just a little project when bored on tea break. Cost minimal, light weight may work may not ?. Anyway fitted to motor and tested on empty tank then changing light level seem ok. The pontensiometer may need tweaking and tested outside in the light of day. Vid3.mp4
  3. Reserve Fuel Indicator Thinking back to my early motorcycling days reserve was always a great way to remind you were getting low on fuel. Long before modern tech took over. Ok not sure if people would want to have this feature on a Paramotor? I know some people carry a mirror low tech but effective, but if flying condition have changed and maybe letting go of controls not the best option. I know you can buy this off the shelf but if you have some spare time and like to tinker and with a bit of common sense. With some cheap components you can do if fairly easily and low cost. My logic is a quick easy visual led. My logic if you feed the LED indication lead over the shoulder in the harness reserve bridle flap, at a glance you would see if LED is on indicating fuel has pasted reserve level you set. Small black rod would easily fix on frame next to fuel tank placing the photo resistor against tank or put photo sensor in cap and velcro to tank. I will try it out let you know how I get on :) if i works I will post all the list of all components and how I made it. Cost so far about £10 Reserve1.mp4

  13. until

    I would say yes its a great place to see a lot of manufacturers and dealers to look at different kit available as you are looking for kit. You also get to meet lots of pilots from all over the country always good for contacts and advice. There is always so very nice kit being sold privately (always get advice from instructor or experienced pilot as to its suitability before buying off the field).
  14. It is the Polini 190 light clutch if you click on the google link in the first post you should be director to goodle folder with images in. https://www.parajet.com/volution and scroll to Thor 190 Light
