About Me

  1. First of all, thank you for having me as part of your community. I am looking for information about transporting two paramotors on a specialized cargo hitch carrier. Do any of you have any information/tips for procuring something that would be suitable to carry a Miniplane Top80 + a Parajet Maverick with a Moster 185? I am driving a Subaru Outback. :) Additionally, would you go with a cargo hitch carrier for that setup, or would you rather get a trailer? Trailers come with their own sort of problems - tyres to manage, bearings that break and so on..
  2. I'm looking to sell my Parajet Volution 3 frame with Moster 185 plus engine, comes with. I have owned it from brand new, first flight April 2016, it has around 25 hrs flight time. Works beautifully never had any engine problems, zero crashes. Perfect for someone looking to get into the sport. Also comes with Sky Spare XL lap mounted reserve fitted by Parajet, (never thrown). rrp £570 Also includes a Parajet V3 Frame Carry case £ £116 All relevant specs can be found here on the Parajet site. The kit is in good condition, always stored in a dry trailer, it has the usual used rubbing marks you'd expect on a used machine. The pull start cable was replaced in 2018 but otherwise no other issues. I will try to upload better images when I get a chance, but I've attached a few phone snaps to show the colours (black and orange) to match the paramania REVO 3 wing which I'm also selling. Please check my other listing for details. Selling because I don't ever have the time to use it enough. Looking for £4300 ONO Viewing recommended, please contact me on info @ garethiwanjones.com

  5. Greetings. I'm a paraglider pilot. I'm looking at buying a used HR R120 paramotor for my First paramotor. I'm looking for advice regarding this particular unit. Is it good? Bad? Tell me! What a used unit fetch normally if low hours and good shape? TX.
  6. Just uploaded my most recent paravlog. Woody recently setup a local meet where a bunch of local pilots got together at the soccer fields behind my house. Here is my vlog about my training progress and telling about my experience at the meet. Thanks Woody for getting everyone together and taking the time to give me some valuable instruction/pointers! Enjoy guys!
  7. I am Looking into getting into flying paramotors in Malaga, Spain. FlySpain are not too far from me, and heard good reviews so more than likely will get a few lessons there, but I would like to buy the equipment first before I do. I have been told it is a good idea to buy a PAP as parts should be easy to get hold of here and that the Pap pa125 and Pap ros125 are really solid machines, but open to suggestions. I weigh 87kg and about 6ft2. Look forward to some suggestions, many thanks, Daniel.
  8. I bought a used ParaJet Volution 2 Macro last year (it's a 2012 model). An injury kept me from flying much but it seems like it has never run well. I’m not able to get over 6500 RPM with it and even that seems to be inconsistent. That manual says to shoot for 7600 RPMs. I can run it up, get 6500, let it back to idle, then get 5500 when I run it up again. Here’s what I’ve tried so far. Replaced the fuel tank cap and fuel filter. Replaced the fuel line and put in fresh fuel. Rebuilt the carb with the OEM kit (Walbro 37c). Adjusted the throttle cable to ensure there was no slack or kinks. Replaced the spark plug twice. Had a friend check the compression. I don’t recall what it was but it remained the same each time which led him to believe there were no air leaks. Adjusted the high and low jets as well as throttle after each change. Checked the packing on the exhaust silencer. It's relatively clean and nothing is loose. Checked the resistance of the CDI and spark plug wire I’m at the point where I may have to replace the carb and/or replace the reed valve. I also read that loose packing in the exhaust system could cause problems. I’m getting very frustrated and don’t want to just start replacing things. We fired up my buddy’s Volution 2 and it ran right up to 8000 RPM. Since the high-end RPMs have been inconsistent (even when manually holding down the throttle lever), it's been hard to diagnose. Has anyone seen a similar problem and, if so, how was it fixed? Thanks!
  9. A question for folks ...has someone thought about using a 14k power bank ad a battery , pros n cons. If it can start a car I am sure u can crank a paramotor with it. Like this one https://www.walmart.com/ip/68800mAh-4USB-LED-Car-Jump-Starter-Emergency-Charger-Booster-Power-Bank-Battery/568089020?wmlspartner=wlpa&selectedSellerId=15564&adid=22222222228136594269&wl0=&wl1=g&wl2=m&wl3=245352131987&wl4=pla-402280347529&wl5=9009674&wl6=&wl7=&wl8=&wl9=pla&wl10=118770990&wl11=online&wl12=568089020&wl13=&veh=sem
  10. For sale is my startup paramotor and wing kit. It consists of a Radne Arrow Paramotor with Radne Raket 120cc engine with pull start and a PAP Motion Size 26 wing. It was an ideal first setup to build my initial hours on however it's time for it to go and for me to move on to a more advanced setup overall. The paramotor never skipped a beat despite what I've heard about it in the past. I've refurbished the carburettor fully with the repair kit bought from Radne Sweeden (£18) 15 hours ago and the pull start magnapull spring again bought from Radne Sweeden (£12) about 17 hours ago. That's all the work I ever had to carry out on it. The rest was just petrol and high performance two stroke oil. The mixture I was happiest with was 40:1. The recommended max pilot weight by RAD Paramotors is 95kg but I'd say it's more like 85kg with the motor generating 50kg static thrust. It's equipped with a 3 blade wooden propeller. I'm 70kg and it got me up with ease. It also comes with its original harness. Here's the full tech specs of the paramotor posted on RAD Paramotors website: http://www.radparamotors.com/radarrowclassic.html The wing is a PAP Motion Size 26. It's a brilliantly forgiving wing and in my opinion I couldn't have gone any better with a wing to learn on. It never let me down and is still in very good, crispy condition. It comes with its original bags and a brand new unused speed bar. I've flown the setup last 2 weeks ago and haven't had any issues whatsoever. Performance wise it was all brilliant. Both paramotor and wing have 47 hours on in total. Any questions - please do not hesitate to ask. Located in London (Canning Town) Contact number: 07763 834 483 Price: £1800 (I believe it's fair for a full setup to get you in the air) PHOTOS:
  11. Hi all just joined, looking to get into the world of paramotoring. Live in Bristol just wondering where I start. Is it as fun and relaxing as everything I've heard? What's the set up costs I'm around 95kg so would need to know pricing for getting set up for that weight. Is there a lot of opportunities for flying in the uk, what with the wonderful weather we have here. Thanks in advance for any help guys.
  12. clearly I have never paramotered before, but I am deeply interested in the sport, I'm also interested in getting to college in the least stressful way possible. why dont I buy a car?! well according to google, paramotor cost you less in repairs if used correctly, so id rather spend a lot once than constantly fixing a lemon in essence, all im wondering is, can. I fly to college in anyway possible many thanks,

  14. HELLOOOO !!! Ive just moved back to Bath, is there anywhere i can takeoff from ? desperately trying to find people and or a sit to takeoff from. Ive got bhpa cp tow and motor Im on facebook as Eddie Handford (bath university) if thats easier Thanks
  15. Hi guys, I've just invested in a moster 185 silent (less than 10hrs on the clock). Does anyone have a list of short term long-term and every flight checks they can share. E.g. every 20hrs change fuel lines e.g. every 25hours change spark plug E.g. every flight check colour of spark plug Those examples have just been pulled out of my arsejust to demo what I'm after. Thanks in advance.
  16. Inccoming first post. I've got an apco lift M and now looking to buy my motor. I've been advised that the moster 185 classic or plus is the BEST out there. Now I know that's largely based on opinion but when I scout forums I can't really find anyone going against it. I'm looking to buy second hand and feel like I'm missing out on some bargains due to staying away from other engines, can anyone offer any advice on what else to keep an eye out for? Thanks
  17. Hi All, new member hoping to learn to fly paramotors VERY soon..... I have the whole of October 2017 off work, to cross-over from paragliding (375 hours, Advanced rating) to paramotoring. Keen to learn with either of two local schools, but "paramotortraining.com" with Simon near Swindon is the closest and probably has the better set-up for wind direction and dry ground! When is the weather going to improve???? Really thought that a whole month would give me the two days necessary to convert. But already we are half way through! Decided to go the paramotor route because I live miles from any hills near Stratford-on-Avon; I used to have my own winch but there are too many height restrictions over my local fields to thermal up higher, due to Birmingham Airport and that is unlikely to close down any time soon.... As long as I stay below 1300m's I can travel in most directions except north!!!
  18. I have said to a few people I think the Spyder is one of if not the best beginner Paramotor wing. Its lighter weight makes it easy to launch and forgiving of mistakes. The wing just hangs there waiting for input, begging to fly. I just come across a great youtube video which shows how easy it is. You can see the wind is light, barely blowing 5mph it looks. The key element to a beginner is reliable easy successful launching. Easy for an experienced pilot to make any wing look good, but when beginners pull up the spyder after ground handling something else is great to see.
  19. I thought I would start a thread with some pictures of my nitro in and on various cars, I hope this will grow and everyone will share pictures of their paramotors either compacted into a car, or complete in a van or on a car with our various methods of transport. Hopefully we can learn which van is best, which paramotors fit in which cars. To start off heres a few pics. This one always makes me chuckle first. My Smart Cabrio is an excellent van Paramotor transport by Surfer Vince, on Flickr Paramotor transport by Surfer Vince, on Flickr Paramotor transport by Surfer Vince, on Flickr
  20. Its really cool to see our sport on the BBC this evening. Check out the iPlayer link if you missed it. It's this guy called Richard Parks, who has done two seasons of a programme called Extreme Wales. Looked like an amazing trip! Would be awesome to do a similar adventure! The guys that guided him looked like they really knew their stuff! http://www.bbc.co.uk/iplayer/episode/b096m9z5/extreme-wales-with-richard-parks-series-2-episode-3 Jake
  21. Here's a video of my first cross country flight from a field near my home to Membury taking in some local sights.
  22. NIRVANA RODEO Simonini 200 Lots of photos and a video on YouTube here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8pcqYY5yu60 http://www.paradrenalin.com/shop/paramotors/rodeo/ - full spec here. I am selling my barely run-in Nirvana Rodeo (Simonini 200) after buying a Nitro 200. I am only changing from this great machine because I want something a little lighter. This was bought new in June 2014 but has been mostly unused for 12 months in that time. It’s in excellent condition. I have now flown 20 hrs since a complete rebuild by the US Nirvana dealer (Ryan Shaw) and it runs perfectly. There is only the usual wear and tear but that is minimal given the new prop, cage parts, fuel tank, and engine components. A very high spec and high power machine with electric start, pull start, in-flight battery charging, Skyflar combination strobe (nearly new), 3-blade prop, full kit as new (see web page). Easily dismantled and fits in the supplied cage and motor wheeled bag. The engine is running perfectly and with the beautifully smooth 3-blade prop gives me 3 Ltrs per hour! If you want power, electric start, and smooth quiet power then this is for you. Please call if interested. When next at the field I'll capture some video of the detail of my Rodeo and post on Youtube with a link here. Tony Wheeler Swindon (UK) 07904 125 756
