Hi and welcome.

Firstly I wouldn't buy a thing until you have had dome lessons.

Spend your money on a decent teacher to start with. What area are you from ?

Carl

im from near manchester ive already spoke with manchester paramotors and meet a few of the lad

Paul will teach you right so your in good hands there.

Dont buy until you have a good understanding of what you need.

For what its worth, I learnt to fly using a PAP Ros 1400 ( which I still use) and my main gripe was that the frame would flex into the prop and smash it far too easily.

In my first 2 years I broke 4 props ,2 of them the cage only just contacted the ground so finally I put a 115cm prop on instead of the 125cm prop until I became confident with my take offs and landings, the extra clearance makes all the diference. Once confident put the 125 back on.

As a paramotor the PAP has been trouble free for 5 -6 years, starts first or second pull even after a winter parked in a shed.

Regards

Alistair
