richjones Posted September 11, 2012 Share Posted September 11, 2012 Hello all I'm not even qualified to be a newbie yet! I'm at the stage of becoming obsessed with getting into paramotoring after watching and chatting to someone about it. I was watching him in April at Loch Ness, and then last weekend in Northampton area and got chatting about the rules, requirements etc. I think the interest really got me when I found I didn't need loads of training & license as such, hence keeping the formalities and cost down. Having said that I can see the benefit of some training as I know little (nothing) about controlling the wings never mind the weather etc I'm not in a rush to buy kit or anything just yet, probably not til next year but I'm keeping my eye open whats going about and prices. Still have a fair bit of saving to do! I'm in Walsall, West Mids so I'll probably be looking into training somewhere like Derbyshire, Shropshire or other Midlands surrounding areas. Oh, I also still have to convince the wife I'm going to do it but she'll come around to the idea I'm interested to know what type of kit I'll be looking for. I'm 90kg fully clothed. Also read a little about high/low mount points - whats good for beginners? What size engine? what size prop? I know training will answer lots of questions but I gotta know if I'm going to be really doing it before I even spend the training costs. cheers Rich Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
