SOL paramotor bag

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

Has anyone got any experience with the SOL paramotor bag?

http://www.solparagliders.com.br/detalhe.php?id=10

I have a Miniplane but I have to remove the cage & prop for transport & storage so I’m looking for a suitable bag to store/protect/transport my paramotor in. 

This looks the part but my main concern is whether the Miniplane would fit with the ABM active arms in place?

If it’s not suitable can anyone suggest a bag that would suit the Miniplane with just the prop & cage removed?

Cheers,

Justin

Ah thanks for that Casper!

It looks as though the Air Conceptions active arms drop down lower than on the Miniplane. 

I will have to measure the distance from the front of the active arms to the prop hub. I see the depth of the bag is 50cm. It would be interesting to know this measurement on the Air Conception if anyone has this?

I have one for my AC Nitro but you need the optional quick release arms on the Nitro for it to fit.

It's a great solution and it means I can leave it permanently in the car boot...

That looks brilliant!

I’ve never heard of quick release arms. It would be good if Miniplane do them. I shall investigate. 

How does the quick release system work?

Thanks,

Justin

It's really simple - the bolts that hold the arms on are turned round so they point outwards, the arms then slot on from the outside and are secured with a washer and large locking wingnut. Undo the wingnut, pull arm off, job done.

Sounds easy enough. Is that a recognised system or is it what you have created yourself?

I’m sure it would work on the Miniplane. I must take a look. Thanks for all the information, it really does make a difference when you can pack it all into the boot of your car. At present I have to remove the parcel shelf & drop the rear seat down. It would be so much easier in a transport bag!

Just bought this bag for my nitro - interested to hear what you are all doing with fuel left in your tank? Are you syphoning it out or just blocking the fuel vent hose? Thanks
