  1. and the very last step when the excessive weight makes your knees buckle beneath you.....
  2. dont go for an old wing, unless thats all u can afford. Revo2 wing is very dated now, I had one years back & offloaded it asap...My 63 year old legs love my apco hybrid for easy forward launches & slow landings, but its not a fast wing, great for just cruising around in light wind. I believe the dudek V king is excellent too, the light weight makes it virtually impossible to blow a launch. Where I can reverse kite I use my dudek nucleon XX
  3. I have had 2 mosters, 1 nitro & 1 atom 80. The atom 80 is by far the best in the vibration/noise/weight department, but obviously not in power. I am 88kg & its adequate for me, even on a hadronxx 20m. I like the atom so much I sold my spare moster & ordered another atom (as a spare as I fly close to 200 hrs/year & dont like to have downtime). My empty weight on a skymax expedition frame is under 20kg
  4. that was normal behaviour on my moster, which had no impact/timing issues, so if its running normal I would just fly it before you take something apart that you dont really need to
  5. if u go with the chameleon buy 2 as u will need a backup, they are very flimsy & I have seen many guys on the field with broken throttles that ruin their day
  6. given that choice I would go with the atom 80
  7. it would probably fly like a dog.... 'are you feeling lucky punk?' Personally I would use it just for kiting, if you can master it you will probably find modern wings a breeze
  8. I had almost same thing, it turned out to be a blocked intake filter on the 'clunk' fuel pickup inside the fuel tank, it was letting enough fuel through for starting/warmup etc but as soon as I went for full power on takeoff it totally shut down, drove me nuts trying to trouble shoot.
  9. looks great, we just need someone to buy one & give a review!
  10. the nuc xx is very effecient, I also have a hadron xx but I only use that on strong winds at the beach, my nuc is my preferred wing for general flying & on a moster I use less than 4 litres an hour
  11. hey Vince, great solution in the suitcase! When you check it in, do you declare it as an engine or just say nothing?
  12. no, sorry, he is a regular guy who flies normal If u want acro wing then WRC will probably not be exciting enough for you
  13. thanks. My latest paramotor is a skymax with atom 80, I am 88kg & after 2 mosters & a nitro this is my fave thus far. 19kg & low noise/vibration makes flying a joy
  14. a mate of mine has 2 & loves them, very solid wing, just check its been looked after as they are getting a little old now
  15. what does a pap frame weigh? Is the frame all stainless? I looked on the website but couldnt see any weight declared
