Never heard of one of these, my throttle handle has an LED light that comes on to let me know my fuels running low which gives me a minimum 30 mins running time. Is mine the only one that has this?

Sorry I can't be of any help! :cry:

Builders merchant/hardware store for the retractable cord. Sorted or you too lazy for that :lol:

I saw a post written by Gordon dunn once who answered this very problem.......he suggested that you use your digital camera to take a picture ....and then look at the picture....and hey presto you can see how much ful you have left....

I normally use the ....Budgie mirror .....

but when that went wrong :? and I had to resort to using this simpler and more cost effective method :lol: and it does work

i made one from a budgie mirror and key retractor, but it was crap, i have now bought one from ebay and its a lot better, lightweight, tough and has a convex mirror. They are not on there at the minute, but keep looking under 'paramotor fuel"

All great suggestions!

I have got a Parajet compact and have recently discovered that I can lean forward enough to the left to actually see how much fuel there is left in the tank - Result!

You could carefully give it a go next time you fly. You might surprise yourself like I did.

I use the mirror which came with my back pack baby carrier. They include it so you can look at your baby on your back which is never something that I felt compelled to do. It came on a long bit of cord with a mini clip on the end - ideal. Not a very helpful comment as the back pack cost almost 100 quids - but I thought I'd chuck that out there anyway!

Try eBay for an old back pack? Just a thought...

My last post was in jest, but it did get me thinking that you must be able to buy spare retractable mirrors for baby carriers. I found this one:

you could probably make it cheaper yourself but if you can't be bothered this might do. Apparently it is made of " heavy-duty chrome reel with over 1 meter of quality retractable cord" and most importantly you can even "clip it to your skirt"...
