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 p
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.

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
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
