BUY IT
 


When thinking about entering the world of Motorised Paragliding several options are available:
Build it | Buy it | Assemble it

1. Purchasing a new unit.

Paramotors nowadays are being made with numerous accessories such as means of advancing and retarding timing etc, which will relate to various applications. 99% of pilots will never need these advances. Unlike conventional aviation, more power here means more height. (When used in conjunction with a speed system power may be used to gain slightly more forward speed). One still in essence is a paraglider and the engine is only there to take the place of leaping off a mountain and searching for lift. Many pilots even with electric starts never use them, as much of the time due to various factors it may not work!

So my recommendation for choosing a paramotor as outlined in my book “An Insight to Power Paragliding” revolves around SIMPLICITY, and ABSOLUTE REQUIREMENTS. DON`T BUY SOMETHING YOU DO NOT NEED, however buy a unit that WILL cater for your requirements and ensure spares are readily accessible from your supplier.

2. Purchasing a 2nd hand unit.

Usually this is quite a good option, provided you are aware of the history behind the set up. Fortunately a 2-stroke engine is usually a simple affair and even if certain replacements are required they are simple enough and cheap to have done. What is important is PRICE and the accessories required such as a TUNED PIPE for heavier pilots and other minor bits and pieces such as two Vs four piece frames, size of fuel tank and upgradability.
