Ooops hard landing (prop damage)


Recommended Posts

Hey Guys

I had my first unforced landing on Sunday.. :cry: I knew conditions were not the best but I promised a few of my friends who had not seen me fly that I would try and get airborne!! Big mistake.

I was thrown around like a rag dog could even get back to the take off point as I was being pushed back, I ended up coming down into a area which I was told later was great place for spotting some of the worlds deadliest snakes in the world. I landed pretty hard on my left foot in some bushes and my ankle is like a watermelon, lucky nothing broken just elephant foot for me and me walking around with crutches feeling sorry for myself. The paramotor is fine but the carbon props are not looking too good.

Q. do you think they can be fixed..

I bought them for 150 pounds a while back. Dont know if its worth sending them off to get fixed if so how much do you think it would cost to fix?

Would you try to fix yourself?



I am usually very careful--ish when it comes to flying, lesson learnt. If conditions are not good leave it for another day.

I have being off work for the last too days, man it gets boring very quick not being fully mobile!!
