First paramotoring in 2013!


Last weekend I had a chance to get back to paramotoring. I went to the site about 6pm, checked the motor and the wing. After almost two months of staying untouched in my friends garage the paramotor started from the very first pull. Very enjoyable flight along the beaches to Stanwell Park and back to Wollongong marina. Approximately one hour in the air. The sun was setting painting water and sand in warm colours.

Plenty of accessories are to be mounted  for the next flying but... one step at the time. These are:
  • chase camera
  • additional camera attached to the cage
  • GPS with LK8000 software
  • choke to start the engine in the air
  • mirror to let me check level of the fuel
I also tested how fast I can climb on max throttle - it is 1.4 m/s with trimmers fully closed.
It is not much, but the wing is a bit small for me.  I have to perform some more testing next time when the scenery will not be that spectacular!! ;)

I had neither gopro nor canon so here is just one picture after landing.

Paramotoring in Woonona down south from Sydney on Synthesis 25 and WASP paramotor.
