Thanks for the comments (and pic ?). Just so you know, I've never started my motor on the ground and never will. Saw enough pics like that while I was learning to make that decision before I ever went near a paramotor.
Weight-wise, I don't have much to compare it to, but is not noticably heavier than the Bailey V5 I did my first few flights on. I was pleasantly surprised, expecting the V2 frame to weigh much more than it does. I did lift a Miniplane Top 80 a few weeks ago, that was LIGHT. But to tell the truth, I can't complain.. I wanted a Bailey for XC and a solid frame for taking a learner's bumps.
