Had my first flight this weekend! (had to wait to get my reserve to fly) Batch 2 w/ 4 Bonka batteries, Ozone Spyder wing, Dudek Powerseat low hang harness w/ reserve. My weight 185 lbs. Wind at 5-8 mph on ground with some midday thermals.
Flew for about 18-20 min. Forward takeoff was short and quick. Climb to about 800 ft. (about 75% throttle) with a couple of descents and climbs in between before landing. Cruse for a bout 7-10 min at 40-50% power. When I landed, battery capacity was at 15-20%. Plenty of power without having to go full throttle.
Some thoughts: Batteries were warm but not out of the ordinary, Will be adding a pre-charge button to help with main battery disconnect switch activation, will be looking into a way to secure the leg hinges to lock into place to make the unit more stable on the ground during setup and hoop install.
Overall, very exciting to get into the air. I have been paragliding for 10 years and really enjoyed using a motor to launch and get a quick flight in without having to go to the top of a mountain. Would of had video but my chase cam malfunctioned!
