    Using reserve in non-emergency

    I will give you a sensible answer David. I have only ever deployed my reserve on the ground as a practice just before a repack is due . My instructor however told me he used to train paragliding in Greece . Part of his training included throwing a reserve and coming down over water.

    Slots in cages...why?

    My paramotor has mid hang point "s" bars .The thrust angle is as recommended . Just the application of the speed bar was enough to tilt me forward a little to much .I have since adjusted the hang point so I tilt back a little further.

    Slots in cages...why?

    I was flying in Kent approx 1000 feet up and as I applied the speed bar I heard the noise . I saw the handle dangling above and beyond the hoop . I came off the speed bar .The brake handle had been cut but not completely. Once home I removed the speed bar , sent the wing for repair and I have not used a speed bar since.

    I had a brake handle touch the prop when I pushed on the speed bar . Pushing the speed bar tilted me foreword and I hadn't noticed the brake handle was not on the magnet. Very scary...

    Thor 80 fuel drip from air filter box

    It may be worth checking your reed valves .They should stop the fuel coming out of the carb and back into the air box . They act as a non return valve. Also when priming the carb you will probably have some fuel enter the air box as well as the carb.
  11. I have just looked at their website. Way to good to be true.

    Parked at 600 feet

    Nice one Alan . I bet it was a nice slow landing.

    Do you use a Clutch or not?

    Clutched or no clutch air conceptions are both excellent machines . If you are a complete beginner a clutched model may be best . ..you will be less likely to catch a line if you don't launch the wing correctly .The nitro 200 is so light that the extra weight of a clutch is insignificant .They are also very reliable .

    Do you use a Clutch or not?

    No gearbox on the air conception . They are a good reliable machine.

    Do you use a Clutch or not?

    On some models the clutch drives a gearbox .Its the gearbox that can reduce power output slightly not the clutch.
