AESTHETICS
 

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

In building your own paramotor ther are unlimited areas available for aesthetics, such as chroming, anadizing, powdercoating and all the other finer details associated with tooling.

Take care when coating certain material and grades. Various coatings may trap certain gasses such as Hydrogen under the coated layer, which causes embrittlement. A certain process is needed to eliminate this embrittled material. Check with the undertaker first.

2nd Hand Canopies ideal for powered and non-powered flight from R4000.
2nd Hand Paramotors also available
