Well about time for something a bit different so Chris (Hoppy), Linal (Kermit) & Mike (Predator) are building Paramotors in one form or another.

Chris & I have gone for a 3D printed motor to start off with whilst Kermit has jumped in boots & all and is building an RC manikin (12" GI Joe type) to pilot his.

All 3 are based on the HobbyKing parafoil that is currently selling in the AU warehouse for $26.00.

My first attempt is finished and ready for flight testing, Chris should finish his over the weekend & Kermit is still waiting for his bits to arrive from downtown China.

A couple of pics;

Parts straight off the 3D printer

Just as well I got a big printer (220mm Propguard

How it all fits together

Lots & Lots of control lines

Sort of how it should look when airborne

All packed up ready to go flying !!
