  1. Isnt that the polini one? The vittorazi is only on 1/2 fingers anyway I believe.
  2. Garmin Connect. Either phone app or website! Just start the app running and walk around the street for a bit. No need to fly.
  3. Back to the original question, I bought a cheap GH wing before training. Then I bought a decent wing after training. There is a big difference between the two. But it was launchable, and I did use it if the weather was rubbish, or there were dogs running around on public land or whatever. It depends if you have anyone local to help you. I struggled trying to follow youtube tutorials with it, because it just wasn't that forgiving. I'd have definitely had more luck with my new one. But once I knew what I was doing, I could launch it and handle it. So you may get somewhere with a cheap one. Then when I finished I sold it for what I paid for it. So it wasn't a waste of money, just maybe keep your expectations in check, especially if you dont have anyone to teach you.
  4. You need Garmin connect app on your phone. Once it has synced the flight it will show in there.
  5. https://secure.simmarket.com/franz-luftfahrt-paramotor-fsx-p3d.phtml I've managed to get this working. Just .. it's a bit clunky, not sure how much of that is the model generally and how much due to the conversion, but it does work. https://www.avsim.com/forums/topic/580813-fsx-addon-aircraft-in-fs-2020/?do=findComment&comment=4322844
  6. That's a very good point that I had never considered, and probably explains why I was taught left hand throttle. Then again I have seen videos teaching the A's D's method with A's in right hand, so I suppose any combo works, but whichever way you do it you make a very valid point that youd want throttle in the other hand. I'm glad I didn't switch to right handed now, as I did think about doing so.
  7. I went left, my non dominant hand. But looks like I am in the minority from what I have seen. In addition to the above point about having my good hand free for tablets, charts etc, I also wanted my good hand free for throwing reserve, rather than left hand or right hand with throttle. I really would like to have tried both before committing. The vittorasi throttle can be swapped round, if that's an option for you.
  8. Not sure if it helps, but when I looked at this bag I was 99% certain it was the same as the airconception bag. I believe their website had dimensions on it.

    The only real risk I can see is people can a) use your password (so change it if you have used elsewhere) and b) use your personal details to try and scam you. Both of those scenarios are already out there, so leaving now probably doesn't achieve anything. Disclaimer: I dont know what details they may have eg DOB etc Hope you get this sorted Simon, whatever their motives it isnt nice to see someone doing their best for the community to have all this hassle.
  10. Are there any options for replacing the coloured hoop on a maverick? I've no need to right now, but my understanding was this was the expensive bit rather than the actual netting. Or is the hoop itself fairly bulletproof and its usually just the netting that gets damaged?
  11. I thought it was a good video. All machines had 2l of fuel in them, that was stated in the video. It wasnt a full on lab test, and they went out of their way to say that. Perhaps you could explain what your interest is, and why you've taken the effort to create a whole new account and voice your displeasure?
  12. Looks good. Any chance of some close ups of where you have attached the new wire to the coil and earth? Seems a no-brainer for the cost of parts.
  13. Sorry, my mistake, the prop is only 140cm as you say.
