What happened to my prop?


Recommended Posts

Ive got a video somewhere that also has the Exact same noise :(

in my case the prop was also nicked......it had come into contact with the mallions on the risers (metal)

I searched for ages to find the mark and if it wasnt for the fact I had prop tape on and it had left a speck of it on the mallion I wouldnt have been sure what had hit the prop.....?

Also bear in mind that the paramotor that you are using Pap 1400 the frame can flex on a forward launch and catch the prop also......I noticed on your previous perfect take off :P:P:P your motor is not fitted the the optional bar that stiffens the frame up which eliminates the problem :?

Thanks for that Simon & Gary.

Just got back with the frame bar to go across :D

Pierre also said that my take off is flawed because I should be leaning back as I move forward, letting the paramotor push me.

I watch experienced pilots launch like this and I have to say this technique does make launching look so relaxed and easy.

Will give it a try.

Thanks again
