DIY Tigger RC Paramotor

I was 'hired' to build an RC Paramotor and to make it as 'cute' as possible. Here's my story..

The mock up in straws and paper was given to me, including Tigger. My idea was drafted and i use thick balsa to form the gondola that will have all electronics embedded (or most of it). The gondola is later wrapped around with plywood to give it some strength.

Along the way, there were many changes and upgrades. Firstly, the aluminum rod was replaced with a CF Tube. Then the servo was replaced with a 10kg Standard sized Servo Metal Geared from a Tower Pro Metal Geared and finally the motor replaced by a DualSky to spin 9 X 5 with 3S 2200mAh.

The last thing to do is to rig a 2m Power Kite and i am having problems to the AOA of the sail.

Any ideas?
