I always wanted one of those, But new w/chute don't they cost almost as much as a gyro. I always figured on a nice used Parasailer. Just keep it in the back of the car.
2 guys had them up at my airport. The one guy was new, he had trouble getting started. The other guy was good, poof , right up ! I watched him take it up to 6000' & shut it off. Just soaring around. He had a hand throttle with electric start right at his thumb. He also wore a backup belly chute to deploy in the event of a chute collapse.
Pretty cool ! But 10 G's right?

The prop is said to get 120 pounds thrust. I hope it will I need all of it for my fat a..
Yes you chould get a used gyro for the price of one. I was asked to be the distributor for BILSAM Aviation a company in Poland that make this and Suzuki conversions and fix wing AC. I said I would not sure way. I got this for $6100 after fees and shipping. not bad. that is less then others like it. Some guy I work with wanted to try this and not gyros something about getting kill in a gyro? IF I can get what I have in them that is fine with me. The Suzuki motors and redrives are what I want. If you want one let me know. I will post more after some test flights are over. I am 230 pounds so if it will fly me it will fly most of you. It has a SOLO motor and the HP pipe is still in the mail said to be 20 HP. This motor as is would make one hell of a pre rotator.

Did some work under the wing today just kite mod not with the motor. I was a work out. I hope to get the motor running it still needs some wiring and the pull start rope needs moved

Brent, I'm a little confused. Is that a brand new, with chute ,ready to fly unit or not? How do you know what chute to get? Can you find used ones cheaper & easily? I havn't looked. I really would love to own one in the not so distant future. Thanks

That would make one heck of a leaf blower for Ron's lawn care business. :D

Chris yes that is band new. he can get the wing to fit your weight. ready to fly? no I had to fit the cables, fuel lines, mount the pull start handle in a better location for me and hook up hte wires it to get it setup and do a hang teast just like a gyro I told the maker that all this should be done for us in the USA he said this why you get to know it better. Right what ever. Still I don't think you can find one new with wing for 6100. My instructor likes the rig and he has seen them all. potos coming of me under the wing.
