Time and weather finally cooperated at the same place, and let me get an evening flight in. Great way to wrap up a 4 day weekend!  >:D

Powered parachutes are not very popular in Pa, way more regulations than powered paramotors . I still have mine in storage, just canít let go of the dream yet. Never been in the air with it.

Regulations are federal, not according to state. The FAA is what governs all aircraft. I'm flying a single seat under part 103 for ultralights, no license required. If you want to fly a two seater and carry a passenger, then you have to have at least a sport license with the PPC endorsement. What do you have?

I have a four stroke SkyCruiser quad paramotor. The last time I was practicing kiting the wing, the ground was very wet from dew, and the wing dragged behind me and pulled the cage into the prop ( I didnít shut the motor off in time ).
Destroyed the prop, part of the cage, and a prop splinter went through one tire, but I was safe.

If you ever want to look it up: SkyCruiser.com ( Lowboy Quad )

I need to order the parts to fix it up and sell it. Perfect condition otherwise.

Iíll email some pics to you.

Sounds like the cage was pretty flexible for that to happen. I guess that's the difference between a PPG conversion frame and an actual PPC. But dew shouldn't have had any affect on kiting if the wing was laid out right and enough power applied. Dragging the wing is typically what happens when someone eases into the power without any commitment being made. Just got to go for it. lol
