I think this was post by one of my mates to take the p1ss just after the comp. :roll:

I decided to use Dean eldridge's modified 18m GTR for this comp as i am practising for the world Slalom championships in september. As you can see from i only touched the brakes when the wing was not 100% flying the wing then started to stall out..

Thanks for posting TONYLUKEPARAMOTORSHOUTY Made me smile this morning... :lol:

From time to time crash fodder is put up on forums. Personally I don't think it harms the sport other than pride and embarrassment of the pilot if they choose to see it that way.

You could instead discus the merits of using too much brake and power in the launch sequence, which seems to be a growing trend. Taking off so close to the stall is a game of roulette.

Thankfully no one got hurt when the prop let go!

I'm sure Luke wasn't trying to offend his mate, rather just highlighting shit happens.

We all mess up some time thats life but its up to the person involved as to whether they want it out there for public view.

I personally think that as long as you are not hurt and there is an explanation as to why it happened then it can be

very informative for other people.

I haven't seen it due to it being removed. However with sky bounds comments of using too much power and brake on launching a video showing this really helps the less experienced like me learn from others misfortunes.

Provided of course all parties are happy for it to be posted.

Also with the amount of cock ups I've done it's good to know it happens to the best of from time to time.

As some one who is still learning I really appreciate everyone posting videos of any kind.

Cheers Lee.

Not sure where the video has gone... I've not complained... When my pocket recovered from the cost of the fix i thought its all very funny...

Ive messaged Barry who shot the video and he has deleted his channel for one reason or another.

He will re-list it very soon

He's been repeatedly banned from most forums, he's been on here using different names like Tony Lawrence, Tony Paramotor, Luke etc. I remember Simon offered him a ground crew role on the T2T but his reply was "i fly paramotors iam not ground crew........MATE" so I believe he went off to arrange his own JOG to LE trip. He's very clued up on 2 stroke motors if you need any help.

For the record, I made the decision, no one else. I did not even talk to Morgy about it.

Morgy

The use of the capital letters scares the shit out of me! I've forwarded his cell number to a really nice girl I know here. I think a really good blow job will level him out and put his feet back in the ground :lol:

I'll get the problem fixed for you!

Alan!

How are you man? Have you been out at all? I've been really lucky we've been flying every week here. Last weekend I managed to make a trip to the mountains for a free flight on the speedster.

Man I was scratching in really week lift for what seemed like hours trying to stay alive. All of a sudden it got a bit shitty and bam! I was in a 4.5m/s ripper to the clouds. It was the first time I tried free flight on a paramotor wing.

At first I was flying with the trims at "0" and i could feel the wing sitting to far forward trying to gain speed. Once I realized what was causing it I closed the trims completely and it acted really nice I must say. Hard to tell the difference really.

HI TOM

GLAD YOUR LIKING THE SPEEDSTER FOR FREE FLYING AS WELL AS PPG .... Sorry ;-)

It does handle best on fully closed trims. In very weak conditions try taking a wrap or use acro handles to get more Brake travel at the same position...

Regards

Mark

I did take a wrap, wow its was almost Acro time! lol

I would have liked something in the middle (acro handles would be really nice). I'm going to hit the mountains next weekend for another go.

It funny I'm the only one with the supair ALTIRANDO harness. No one has ever seen one before around here

Its a reversible harness/stuff sack. In my old location I had to hike 200-400-1800 feet to take off so weight was really important factor when flying.

Anyways I show up at the mountain with a little larger then normal knapsack on my back (the light weight reserve and the speedster fit nicely inside). One guys runs over and stops the truck and starts looking for my harness (all the guys I was with had a big stuff sack and a big harness). I laughed and told him I have it here no issue.

Unzip the sack out pops the paraglider and reserve, reverse the sack out pops the harness, zip up the back up.... Lets fly! Total weight under 10k

If you looking for a simple light setup I cant recommend it enough. amazing to travel with (I just wrap the sack in plastic to protect it and then check it).

Yea over all I'm happy with the speedster... lol I'm not sure the name fits but ok....
