Definitely the 140 if you are going to free fly, you will be well underweight freeflying on the 160 :!:

Thanks for replying.

Based suggestions,140 fits for free fly, and 160 fits for paramotor.

I few GIN bolera III, M size(85-105kg), my total weight of taking off(paramotor) is 111kg,over 6kg.

The landing is quick while nil wind, so I am planning to choice a big range.

Hi WZH! I have a Sting 140 and I am just under 90Kg. My take off weight is about 128Kg.

I even thought to try the Sting 120 but now I am after a reflex wing. I personally, think you will be too

light under the 140. I love flying it in light wind conditions but I get thrown around a lot in strong winds. Also, the Sting 140, is quite a slow if compared with the reflexes or high performance models. Even after I get a reflex one, I am not planning to get rid of my Sting 140 (mine comes with the name "PAP Motion").

Why don't you get in touch with Powerplay themselves and ask what they would recommend you to do regarding size, in relation to what you intend to use it for? I am sure they will be pleased to advise you on that. They must have tested those wings so much so they will have every answer you can wish for.

Anyway! Whatever you decide to do, I hope you have a lot of fun flying.

Take care!

Cesar
