  1. After passing my POWER rating in October 2017, I've just saved enough "magic beans" to buy a second hand Zenith with polini thor 130 engine. I have saved another £900 towards a suitable wing and I am stuck between a Paramania REVO 2 26 EN-B, or a Ozone Speedster 28 EN-C. My brain tells me I should gain experience on the lower rated wing initially, but my heart is more interested in the Speedster. I have 400 hours on a paraglider, with lots of competitions and several flights over 100km's. But that was before 2000, in the last two years I'm averaging 5 hours a year ! Hence I took my power rating to improve my flight duration this year. REVO or SPEEDSTER, same price, same weight range. I'm looking to boat around the countryside, not race everywhere! I'm 87 kg and feeling all of my 54 years, shorter runs appreciated.... What do you think?
  2. Hello, I'm brand new to the sport of paramotoring. I'm still in the planning stages and have not yet had any training, but I'm looking to the future and trying to figure out the best setup for me. So far, I'm looking at Scout for a motor. I've heard and seen a lot of good things from them. I'm leaning towards the Carbon cage over the Enduro, though I'm not sure if that's the best choice. For the actual motor, I'm looking at either the Moster Plus or Pollini Thor 190. I'm roughly 210 lbs and I'm looking for something with good power and lots a thrust while at the same time maintaining respectable fuel consumption. Definitely don't want a gas hog. As for what I foresee my style of flying to be, I don't see myself doing a whole lot of acro, at least that's not my main objective right now. I think I'm going to be more of a cross country/long distance/sight seeing type of flyer. There's a lot of mountains, forests, and lakes to explore in my area so that's primarily what I'd like to do. (I'm at roughly 500 feet above sea level, but I'd definitely be traveling to places that are ~5000 feet above sea level, if that makes a difference when flying) As for wings, after doing some research, I thought the Ozone MojoPWR looked like it'd be good to start with. It's rated as a EN A Beginner/Intermediate so that sounds about right, at least as far as I can tell. The Ozone Kona is my 2nd choice, but it's rated as an EN B Beginner/Intermediate. Not sure how much of a difference that makes. But again, my main focus to start with is just sight seeing. At least until I build up some solid skills and experience. Anyway, for my goals and what I've laid out here, do these sound like good places to start? What are your thoughts on the Carbon vs Enduro, Moster Plus vs Pollini Thor 190, and the MojoPWR wing vs Kona, etc?
  3. I am beginner PPG pilot just finishing up my course. Currently training on a Parajet V3 with a TOP 80 engine. I still find the cage with engine rather heavy and bulky. Planning to purchase my own kit to suit my weight and height (68kg weight and 165 cm height). I am considering MacFly with Thor 80 engine - made of titanium they should be lighter than the V3 and also less bulky. Interestingly the Macfly frame/cage comes in 3 diameters - 150cm, 138cm and 128cm, while the V3 is around 146cm. A few questions 1. What would be the recommendation for the cage size? Is there any disadvantage of going with the smallest - 128 cm? 2. Any recommendations on the size of wing? I am planning on the Roadster 2 but still debating size. Thanks
  4. The Harness. Day 2 or should I say morning 2. Money has now changed hands, which is not an easy thing, I think I must have both Scottish and Yorkshire blood in me, it's now time to get down to it and crack this bugger. Today I arrived at Membury in my van - it seams you either have to have a van or posh car to Paramotor, l'm lucky enough to have an old van so could already be mistaken as a pro. Now I'm an expert at flying the mini wing it's onto the bigger boy and the harness. Simon gives me a wing and harness and onto the wet field (yup it has been raining). Trudging out onto the field I head up wind and layout the wing confident in my new found skills. It's then that Colin strides over and points out my rookie mistake - I should be down wind! Doh! Pack up and its across the field again. With the wing laying out I'm introduced to the harness and wing. Risers, A lines, b lines, c lines, d lines, brakes, trim, the dot or graphic in the middle of the wing, the tips of the wing and the luvres! What the hell! I'm a teacher and I never set that many lines! I'm reassured it's actually quite simple and I only need to focus on the A lines and the brakes. My first big wing flying is the reverse launch method. With the risers together (risers are the bits the strings attach to - I'm using the term strings as it annoys the pros) turn them over and clip into the carabiners on the harness. If you've managed that correctly when you let the risers dangle the brakes should be at the top. Grab the brakes, slowly walk back (into wind) and the wind should build a wall and the all important A lines present themselves! To my surprise this worked! Yey. Next arms outstretched, wrist together and slowly bring your arms up to eye level while stepping back, then BOOM the wing was up!! Bloody hell, now what! So, easy, if the wing dips to the left pull on the left brake and vise versa. Hmmm easier said than done - pull the wrong brake and the world falls down around you (which happens a lot if you are like me!). Now it's just practice, practice, practice. - until the rain came in the afternoon
