norman Posted August 17, 2007 Share Posted August 17, 2007 From Paramotor Magazine forum. Kim Young Min owner of Korean paramotor manufacturer N-Zin wing was tragically killed during a speed race in Thailand. Initial reports suggest that his brake handle was sucked into the prop causing his wing to enter an unrecoverable spiral. How many times does the warning about this crop up during training - timely warnings. Perhaps another reason to carry a quick and easily accessible knife though who knows how rapidly the 'G' built up during the spiral, and how long he had to recognise what the problem was and sort it out. An interesting one to ponder? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
