pete_b Posted December 28, 2007 Share Posted December 28, 2007 As its quiet? About 3 months ago I decided to get anther more powerful paramotor now there is nothing wrong with my trusty Pap Top 80 but I want better economy. I looked at what was avalable and it came down to 3, but they all had good points and bad so Ill build my own. I contacted Simonini and ordered a mini 2 plus with fuel pump and bing carb. Ordered a ground adjustable prop from GSE in the states. Two weeks later they were both here oooooooooooo shiny shiny. I have over the last few years flying thought that if this was different or that was moved to there maybe it would be better,so I decided to build my own cage. 6mm stainless tube was ordered and arived two days latter,after I had made the bender I started to form the cage Then work picked up and what with one thing and another the build was crawling along. As I am a BIT impatient I was not going to have the motor sat around for I don't know how many months doing nothing so I thought about putting it in to my Pap cage but decided to keep this flyable just in case it was flyable. After thinking about it I decided to to get a parajet macro complete less engine and fit the Simonini in to it. The engine is now in sat in the cage waiting for some extra mounts to be made so as the exhaust and prop will clear the cage,the electric box fouled the head so thats got to be reworked the spark plug will not allow the fuel tank to go in so I have heated up the tank and pushed the top down in(not a pretty sight but it will do for now) I am now trying to work out a throttle grip with stop and start buttons. I did not go for the Parajet one as I like the Pap type and found the Parajet one a little large for me. I hope to have it running by mid Jan as my Pap will be in spain waiting for me to go out and fly it in the warm air over the beach.HA HA Pete b Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
