  1. Today was the day that I began to realise my childhood dream. When i was 11 years old, i bet my brother that i would be a pilot by the time i’m 50! Well today was the day that my vision of actually achieving that felt real. Today was my 1st Paramotoring lesson. Before i start - I had a few flying lessons in the past, but the ‘cost' of getting a pilots licence was just too high (in both time and money). AND once you get it, there’s the small issue of BUYING A PLANE! So realistically, i needed to work out another way to fly. Cue Paramotoring. So what is Paramotoring? So for those reading this outside of the Paramotorclub.org, Paramotoring is basically a person, with a parachute (called a wing) and a big propeller strapped to his/her back flying - Here's a picture for you ? Learning this sport can be frustrating - it’s weather dependant - in particular, the wind and so you can’t really guarantee a training day more than 1 day away. If it’s too windy then you can’t do it. Simple. To help, here’s an app that i highly recommend (as recommended to me by my instructor Simon) - it gives wind and gust speeds. I’m sure it does more as i learn more. But it give you an idea if flying is going to happen. Even with these potential delays due to weather, it still beats flying a fixed wing simply down to the fact that it takes less ‘hours’ and more demonstrable competence. So if you’re keen you can be in the air flying solo within 3-4 days! (weather dependance of course). Day 1 Getting there: The airfield was just behind the Membury services on the M4. Easy enough to get to. Lower profile wheels/cars should be warned, the driveway is a little rough. Food & Drink: Their is a Starbucks literally 10 meters away! and another 10 meters are WHSmiths, Macdonalds etc… so food and drink is easy to get. However, i think i’ll bring a gas cooker and kettle next time - much cheaper than motorway service prices! Getting started: So after arriving, there was a meet and greet, coffee (very important), a short briefing and the issuing of the Trainee Pilot’s Guide workbook (TPG). The TPG contains info, further reading and more importantly, explanations and instructor sign-off for each stage/learning outcome. It looks pretty good… gives me an idea on what stages i’ll be going through in my training. Today was about Ground Handling. The most difficult part of Paramotoring is getting off the ground (as told by the instructors). So a good understanding and ‘feel’ of the wing is essential. So today was about getting used to handling the wing, getting it in the air and keeping it stable. Things i learnt: Laying out the wing on the ground in the optimal position for a good launch Controls - brakes and Risers with left and right controls How to ‘balance’ the wing - Simons analogy was to think of it as an up-side-down pyramid that you are balancing on your finger - if it starts to lean to the right, you need move yourself to the right beneath it. This is done with the left and right controls of the brakes and your feet. Using the wind - the wing flipped a few times, but rather than physically unflipping it, i could use the lightest of winds to get it to right itself. Wing control in 3 stages - today was just stage 1: getting used to the wing and getting up in the air while wearing a harness. Make love to the wing - don’t just f*ck it - Haha. this had to be the quote of the day - and it worked!!! If you pull hard, tug left and right aggressively then the wing responds aggressively (usually to the floor), but if you use the wind, and lightly touch the direction you want to go, it’ll work better (and stays up - no pun intended). This took most of the day to get the hang of due to it being a ‘feeling’ rather than a step-by-step technique. Managing the cables - so they don’t tangle etc Picking up the wing safely so the wind doesn’t catch it and pull you away Packing the wing away So overall, a really fun day - a great experience. Next Steps I’ll blog each of my training days, so others can share in the experience, but also, if you are also interested in learning this sport - do it! It’s a lot cheaper than you think… and way more fun!!! Now, I just gotta wait for a combination of free time and good weather for the next lesson! I'll leave you with my quote of the day:

  4. Hello I want to sell my 26 Roadster3 to buy the same wing but in 24m size... Wing bought in december 2018, just 1 year of flight and 40hours on it Just Perfect...nothing to say... 2700€
  5. As an aging 10 stone weakling I'm finding it increasingly difficult to launch my wing in still air conditions, as I struggle to put enough energy into it to launched. Any suggestions for a suitable replacement wing ? ( And why that one?)
  6. Looking to sell my Paramania Revo 2 26m. It has only done 10 hours from new. I bought the wing when it had done 6 hours and it was serviced (by the loft) just before I bought it. Feel free to message any questions or offers. Price is negotiable. £1350 (Sorry for the poor quality photos. I can take more on request but I am not keeping the wing at home currently.)
  7. 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:
  8. I'm selling my Nucleon WRC 29 wing. I bought this wing in 2016 and have flown it for just over 70 hours before I moved on to my Nucleon XX. It has been an amazing wing to use to progress. I initially kept the wing as a spare but, in all honesty, I just don't fly it any more. As such its time to let it go. Its still in good shape and thought to have about 100+ hours on it. I'm the second owner with an instructor being the first. The wing has the added benefit of having 2D steering fitted. It really is a great wing for Cross Country flying. Its fast and it just seems to cut through any mucky air. My Nucleon xx will bounce around whereas this wing is far more solid feeling. It launches easily and behaves well. It will land fast if you like a swoopy long energy landing (trimmed out) or if you crank the trimmers in you can just step out of the air. I always thought I'd keep this wing, but it just seems such a waste it sitting on the shelf never being flown - so I decided to fly it one last time and sell it. I've put it on eBay so I can't change my mind!!! It may go cheap, but it will go for whatever it goes for! https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Paramotor-Wing-Dudek-Nucleon-WRC-29m-inc-2D-steering-fitted-Orange-Black-White/302936329864
  9. 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.

  11. Hello! I am currently learning to fly a paramotor. I have been using a paramania gtx for ground handling so far. However to progress further I need to purchase my own wing. I would love to get a paramania revo or gtx styled wing, around 24m. I will be flying using a 100cc engine and I weigh around 11-12 stone. Please feel free to suggested any other appropriate wings. I am on the hunt for something that I will be able to grow into and is not so easy that it will become boring, however similarly I wish to be safe and not thrown in too much at the deep end. Thanks all! PS. I am down in Dorset, UK, so ideally nothing too far away although I am whilling to travel for the right wing.
  12. Hi, I'm after a ground handling wing. I'm in the warwickshire area and new to paramotoring. If there's anyone out there in my area let me know and if anyone has a GH wing, I would be interested. Thanks for your help.
  13. I flew this wing for a week flying down Malaysia and a couple of time in the UK. I think it can be good to see a point of view about a wing from not a pro pilot. So I made a video review of the FreeRide, I have tried to keep it non comparison to other wings in my review but in the real world, my opinions are based on other wings I have flown which can be different to wings you have flown. So it can be hard. Instead I just went with some minor tests and visual references. watch the video first then I may do a write up on my findings comparisons etc.

  19. It’s been 5 weeks since i had my first lesson in Paramotoring. Since then there have been a few variables that have led to such a long absence from the airfield: Weather Family life Work Other hobbies The main cause out has been the weather. I have a bit of a better understanding of the weather requirements now so now i look for a good wind - Average of <10mph and gusts under 15mph. That’s about my limit. The night of my 1st session, i ordered what has now become a bible and regular bedtime read - ‘Paramotoring from the ground up’ 2013 edition. This is a great book that covers so much in a really easy-going way: FLPA exemption (Which means i can’t take a cup of coffee up with me because if the cup falls, that contravenes Schedule 3 of the Foot-Launched Powered Aircraft Exemption - which includes dropping people (??)). Introduction to the aircraft (i’ll stop calling it a parachute with a motor - i think aircraft sounds betters!) How it actually fly’s - Lift, drag, the controls etc Mastering the Wing - of which some of my learning was validated when i finally got my 2nd lesson in) The Power Unit (I didn’t even know how a 2-stroke engine worked!) As well as the rest: Instruments, hardware, rules, laws, airspace, weather and (excited bit) competitions Overall, the book has really helped me on a number of levels - learning, keeping the ‘drive to fly’ present, and giving my confidence. O and i also order my own wing… the not so expensive part of the kit… (exciting!!!!!) So on the night of the 17th (June), i text Simon after looking at the not-so-perfect weather “are we good to go?”. "Yes mate ? Se you tomorrow" was the response got… BOOM! We’re on!!! So Saturday morning, i arrived promptly at 9am ready for the day. There were a few other there that i hadn’t met - all at similar levels. I met the guy that went to a trade-type show to buy a t-shirt and walked away with a paramotor! Awesome bit of kit btw…. (didn’t see the t-shirt thought lol) and i has my first task of ‘F*ck he’s gunna crash… ooo no he didn’t, ooo he’s about to have a wind direction pole anally inserted…. ooo no he didn’t!) that incidentally didn’t scare me off - just made me wanna get up there! So as for the training…. After re-familiarisign myself with the kit, building the wall, ‘making love with the wing’ and general practice, i moved on to a full sized wing! This was great…. more force but slower reaction time to the wind… which actually gave more thinking time…. I also did the reverse launch…. Reverse launch? Yes - you face the wing, get it in the air, twist 180 degrees and run! simple…. got the hang of that pretty quick (thanks to imprinting the instructions from the book followed by confirmation and more tips to improve from the instructor… felt more autonomous today ? TIP: I wore some gym gloves today…. so the cables arrmchign the wing to the harness didn’t rub my hand raw… (Less from the last lesson). So - not much more to say apart from: “you’ll be taking your first flight next lesson… “ Yes! I’ll be in the air actually flying solo!!! Hopefully i won’t be almost flying into trees and i’ll try to prevent the wind direction pole from inserting itself anally!!!! haha So here's a little arial drone video edit i've knocked up showing the airfield, and someone training their 'ground handling'... Hope you like it... (and i mean 'knocked up' btw... )
  20. Hi all, I have my new paramotor (including wing, suit, parachute etc) for sale. I unfortunately had a motor accident before my kit was delivered to me and so I am sad to say this is now up for sale. It is all still in the original packaging. Please see the ebay link below for further information. Thanks! http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/252397207436
