Videos from the first 5 owners


#1

I hope we get some video experiences shared in the forum from the first batch owners.

I want to see. Assembly, battery setups, flying, natural sound, some close up of construction. Their experience and thoughts. It’s early days so not expecting instant perfection.


ComPPG - something fishy - an Open Letter to Paul

I think @pdwhite will/should create a setup guide (video) and going over the paramotor :slight_smile:


#3

@Totej, sure, @Pdwhite 's videos are awesome, but I am also with @Vince and agree, that I would love to see some first hand experience from the first 5 customers!


#4

That’s the plan, I’m really excited to make a bunch of flying videos here now that the winter weather is winding down (just got some flying in today, having not flown for about 4 months) Anyways flying videos coming soon.


#5

I would love for the first 5 owners to identify themselves in this thread so we can all be properly jealous. They can ward off the ‘evil eye’ by promising us some videos like @Vince has suggested :slight_smile:

Looking forward to seeing more flying videos by @Pdwhite too!!!


#6

Just got some flying in today ( first time all year, waited to for the morning snow to melt) Anyway you guys wanted to see it in action some more so i recorded some clips and uploaded it, take a look https://youtu.be/zo8hxEXlnVM

Thanks Paul, great to see.

What batteries were those ones exactly? Just the 2 Packs?
I ask as your original bonka link is dead.
These?http://www.bonkapower.com/a/Multicopter/20150825/18.html

How long do you get on the snake with that small setup?
(It’s not an efficient wing and smallish size won’t help either, I estimate 10 minutes on that)

@Vince this is the correct link: http://www.bonkapower.com/a/Multicopter/20150825/11.html

Paul that is a awesome video! If it wasn’t that I just bought a new Maverick, I would have bought one of these right now! I will have to save up a bit and get one of these too.


#10

Thanks for the videos. I get why you stayed low - it was cold and you wanted to get some footage. BUT… I’d love to see a vario log from a flight from a calm day where you go max power/max climb for a good 2-3 minutes. Curios about the climb rates.


#11

these climb rates would not tell you anything, as this is heavily dependant on Paul’s weight, and the wing used as well as trimmer settings.


#12

Easy to do then. Pdwhite already said he weighed 190 lbs. All we need then is to let us know the make/model/size of his wing and trimmer setting and actually make that video. We can then have a pretty good idea. Pdwhite, will you do that?


#13

For the video I think you are referring to the wing I was using was the Dudek Snake 22 and I was half trims.
