  1. Thanks. Thats exactly the scenario I'm hoping to avoid. Perhaps it isn't do-able, but thought I'd ask in case anyone has had any luck as my house insurance is due soon.
  2. Has anyone had any luck getting their paramotor insured on their house insurance as a valuable insured outside the home? I just checked with mine (Hastings Direct) and one of the exclusions is 'any craft' which also excludes drones etc. If you have had any luck, which insurer was it with? (will hopefully save me a little time ringing round them all and having to explain what a paramotor is over and over) Thanks
  3. http://papteam.com/paramotor_tinox/?lang=en Weights are on the bottom of this page for all engines. Watching your thread with interest.... my other thoughts are a AC nitro or miniplane. The latter sound very cheap to repair.
  4. Thanks for the super-quick responses Simon 😀
  5. Thanks Simon, What fuel consumption would you estimate the same pilot would be on a moster? Also, is it quieter? I'm currently torn between an atom 80 (light, efficient, quiet) and a moster(heavy, not so efficient, noisy) based on wanting something reliable and mainstream, and there not seeming to be many options between these 2 options. The atom hasn't got as much power as I'd like, the moster has too much. So if the 150 is a viable alternative then I may look at that again. I'd been put off by the previous thread I found, but it was a while ago. Incidentally, did you sell the used one you were selling?
  6. How does the 150 compare with the moster for fuel economy, noise and power? And did they sort the early reliability issues - there was a lengthy thread on here. Is there any real reason to buy one instead of a moster? Thanks
  7. They have some info on their website now (maybe it was there when you posted this, but it wasn't when I looked a few weeks ago) Also an American site has a bit more info now. They do look decent value.
  8. Thanks, that helps a lot. Good video, using this is the one you mean. All sounds so obvious, dont understand why they are still being designed with large gaps.
  9. I am looking at various paramotors and keep coming back to this issue. Is there anything that can be done retrospectively whilst still allowing the cage to be disassembled? I am probably looking at a maverick or pap tinox. The maverick has smaller gaps. But also wondering if additional netting could be wrapped around the cage sections on the pap. Has anyone done this?
  10. Thanks. I have read elsewhere about the weight, but good to know its reliable if I can lift it.
  11. I was considering a volution, but those weights are crazy. Is it really that heavy? Sorry to hijack thread, but I have been unable to find out the weight differences between the maverick, zenith and volution. Does anyone know what the difference is between the 3 (with the same engine obviously)
  12. Bumping a very old thread... Did the thor 130 turn out to be any good, and is it reliable? I have an option on a paramotor with this engine that's seems decent, but I can find very limited reviews or info on the engine. I am also not great mechanically, so would need something reliable.
