Paramotor Wanted

Hello Guys,

I have a few hundred hours of paragliding experience, but where I live it is difficult to do as much free flying as I would like. As such, for the first time I am tempted to get a paramotor.

I am around 80kg and currently fly a mac para envy (medium level DHV 2) and a small hybrid speed wing, the skim15 (not rated). I know both can be flown successfully with a motor, so no need to buy a new wing (yes I know, the skim will be a handful with a motor, and VERY fast, plan on flying the envy with a motor for a fair while first).

OK, so I am after a good condition paramotor for a reasonable price. Needs to have enough power, without going overboard. I will not be getting any heavier and I am not worried about allowing for future tandem applications. Remember, if I want to fly high I will just free fly and go XC via thermals. The motor will be more for a quick blast after work or weekends when access to paragliding sites is not possible.

Does anyone have some secondhand gear they are interested in selling? Somewhat light weight and compact would certainly be an advantage, although I know the really small units such as the parajet micro would be to small for me.

I look forward to hearing what is avalible!

Cheers,

David

Hello Guys,

Thanks for the replies.

@ Morgy - thanks, but not interested in a wing, just a motor. Also, your add say will not ship. This is another problem.

@ Francis - Your unit looks like a nice piece of gear. Do you have any more info on it? I goggled it but not a lot came up.

@ All - The miniplane weight shift sounds nice as it is apparently very close to free flying. Anyone flown one?

I have some links, but I cannot include them or the post get rejected?

Cheers,

David
