Opale-paramodel's Oxy 0.5 Paraglider

Hi!

I've just stumbled over this fantastic, long awaited, 2013 release from Opale-models: http://www.opale-paramodels.com/inde...r-rc-paramotor

Here's a video of it:
Indoor Rc Paramotor - Oxy 0.5 - Backpack XXS - Opale (2 min 20 sec)


Doesn't it look just amazing?


PS I've just had a look at the pricing. If buying the paraglider wing, the 'backpack'/chariot with servos and the motor/esc/prop, it will ease your wallet of 307 (http://www.opale-paramodels.com/inde...ts/kit-oxy-0-5).
It is a bit pricy if one compares to the current mainstream RTF-micro-models, but this is not a common foamie either...

...Maybe too pricy... but look at the quality of their products, certainly not to be compared with Hobbyking! :-)

These are made like real parafoils! They are beautiful!

I like that things like this are still being made,
everythings built to a price these days and either flies cr@p or lasts two minutes cus of the cheap materials,
nice that theres still a choice to buy decent stuff

my mate bought a 450 clone helicopter because he didnt want to spend the money on a t-rex 450, they look the same right so why not save the money?...
a few weeks of flying and the head fell apart and dropped to the floor like a stone,
yeah its only 20 quid to replace the whole airframe that was wrote off but that could of been nasty!

There is no doubt Opale has TOP Quality!

I have previously purchased a couple different (Hobby Zone) Sky Surfer knock offs. Both made in China. Parachute Sky HX255 the other I don't recall name.

One had the chrome mylar type wing, besides the radio etc being junk the trailing edge of the wing had been sealed incorrectly and nothing I could do to spread it open evenly while attempting to fly, trashed it trying to fix it. The second one did have the white light plastic wing but this one the leading edge was not symmetrical, wide open like a wind sock on the right front and wrapped around properly on the left. HARD Right turn. I manage to patch up the front on this one and flew a handful of times before I found a used original Sky Surfer wing on ebay. I still routinely fly that wing with a modified chassis toting a GOPRO around the local beaches.

Anyway the Hobby King toy for $27.00... likely not too good. The Hobby King Wing, I don't know, others have been able to restring and fly that one.

Back on topic, I've flown quite a few different makes/models etc... The Opale gear is All the best quality. The details of their wings are impressive. I 've got to say that you get what you pay for. If there are others out there of similar quality able to ship worldwide I'd like a link, I'm interested.

VideoKahuna, thanks for posting. I know that beach!

I have been following Opale for a couple of years now. Really nice products.

From all the videos, the Oxy .5 seems to have a lot of power.

Do you think it has any capability to carry a small camera? How much weight do you think it could carry? if at all.

Thanks. Keep posting the vids.

Speak for yourself. Overpriced? Maybe. It is a quality product. You get what you pay for.

I don't have the skills to make it, so I am willing to pay for a high quality product.
