Paramotor on floats

Recommended Posts

Hi guys,

Has anyone any input into design considerations for a paramotor on floats. 

There are images of units on the net....has anyone any advice or thoughts on this.

Initially i will just build the floatplane section, later could be the framing to keep wing up off water when not inflated.


An evolution of this only much smaller and lighter...and cheaper

My initial thoughts were..."gasp"....they have an aluminium tube on the leading edge of a paraglider....goes against all my natural instincts. Still makes me nervous thinking about it, but it flies.....interested to see thoughts from others....Cheers.


Yes that had me intrigued too. Is there an alternative means of gathering up and deploying a wing so that if it were used on water, its not going to settle down onto water once aircraft is near stationary?
