    Bailey Aviation

    its a very arrogant business model, basically treating your customers with contempt. I was very interested in one a few years back, very glad I didnt go ahead with it. With vitto, there are so many dealers & their warranty/service is second to none, parts everywhere. In this game there is always something breaking or needing replacing, & if you cant get the parts the paramotor is junk, & you have missed so many flying opportunities while waiting. Stay away from bailey unless you live next door to them, or can manufacture your own parts

    I would agree with the thor 250 & tornado, but nitro 200 is very marginal. What about the moster 185 that is at least 25% more power than the nitro?

    Hello everyone, new here

    this is very entertaining, cant make this sort of stuff up (or are we...) ?
  4. I imported a brand new AC to Thailand a few years back, no import duty. I believe they are exempt, but the customs officers etc seem to make up the rules as they go along sometimes from what I have heard, you will 'probably' be fine as its used equipment
  5. yeah, I often lay mine on its back when transporting, I leave the prop on & made a little cradle to support it. No issues with fuel smell or leakage
  6. I have a skymax star, the tank is excellent & seems very tough. Re the torque compensation system, correct that most paramotors use it, but the skymax solution is unique in that you can adjust the lateral offset by sliding the rear bar from side to side (as per foto in post above). I have not seen any other frame with that feature, most are a fixed offset. skymax system allows fine tuning for each person/wing

    Replacing a damaged line

    I have replaced a few lines lately on 2 different wings, only ever replaced the damaged lines & no issues at all, just check the new line is within a few mm of the opposite number as occasionally the manufacturers stuff up the line lengths

    BlackHawk Helmet

    hi Andy, I have a sena 20s I have used for about 2 years, has bluetooth connection to phone, uhf & vhf radios. Works great (tufftalk is same sena system, but is a neater physical setup). Often I get a phone call while flying & caller doesn't know I am flying

    Do you use a Clutch or not?

    seriously guys, does it matter? The difference is so insignificant surely, at the speeds we travel at. The weather must be bad & everyone is bored & wants to split hairs?? Lets just enjoy whatever we have & burn as much petrol as we can

    Tornado 280 paramotor engine from Air Conception

    I guess its good old demand & supply, get people to stop wetting themselves & adding to the hype of it & maybe some sensible pricing will arrive
