Wing Over Practice - Paramotor Shenanigans 📷

in Paramotor25 days ago

Here was a flight were I went up high (2500' above ground) to practice
advancing my wing overs. This is a slow process when done safely, and since I'm a new pilot, I'm taking it eas and slowly. Hundreds of turns to master each step of the way, before dropping that wing any lower.

I'm basically getting the middle of the wing to horizon at my level, so its 90degrees to normal flight.

Some down low pics as well, such clear skies.

This 360 camera is rad, view in any direction, look at that colorful wing.

Works out on the rail line, not sure why they are doing it in such cold winter conditions, but hey.

What an awesome flying machine.

Oh ya, back to the wing over training.

Crap, engine died from spirally out negative G forces, fuel tube sucked back some air likely and starved the carb. Easy to restart in the air, but would obviously prefer if the engine didn't die mid flight. lol

Such awesome sun scapes.

Impressive series of photographs, it feels like it was a long way down, but in really might be really fast. You managed very well to capture so many beautiful shots :)

Thanks stef1, it can be a 10-15min glide down if you go flat and effeicient, but its more fun to do wing overs, spirals and faster maneuvers that get you to the ground 2-3 times faster. These were up above ground maybe 2000'
