I’m currently training on a foot launched paramotor and am getting in to the sport. Am looking at buying my first paramotor & wing.
Honestly, the cost is a bit of a barrier to entry if I’m buying new. But I’m determined to buy an electric paramotor when I can. For me it will be the perfect fit and I would much rather avoid the ICE route.
If one was to try and self build an electric paramotor, equivalent to an SP140, would it be much cheaper to do so, or should I just save up and buy the production unit? I’m just wondering is anyone has worked out a cheaper way of doing it. I consider myself reasonably proficient at DIY and basic engineering but with the obvious safety considerations I don’t know if this is worth pursuing.
Thanks for humouring an inquisitive beginner!
