Very shabby video for a Promo video. No pictures of the takeoff procedure, which I would imagine is quite hard. If you expect to get the kind of money you are asking, you will have to do a lot better than this.

Mr. foambuilder

Thanks, now I know why I'm only selling internationaly.The video at the begining shows it leaving the pavement.
I really enjoy flying these things,i wish there were more of them flying in this country. Most of them i sell on ebay go to germany and the uk.
Thanks

I want one... they really look fun... and the club guys would get a riot out of one. Mr. Foam kinda blasted ya, but I ask with respect.. $350 seems like a lot and that's even without the RX and battery! Are there any less expensive options without getting total junk??

I think you've done a nice job on this paragliders- my buddy has built one and I've flown it and yours looks top notch.. I know they are very stable for video and fun to fly no airbatic's but its just cool to watch and fly. btw if you can fly an airplane you can fly this.

You could just get the gondola and supply your own kite and electronics.

I could guide you to the best kite for it.And tell you how to set up the lines.
thanks

Question of curiosity. Why do you and so many other ebay sellers state "no returns accepted"? How can someone have confidence in buying in this manner? What if it is damaged or missing something?

I ask because in the past I have emailed people on ebay about this issue. They almos t always skirt the real question and answer in a manner that tries to quell my fears without really committing to handling potential problems like that......?

Dead, it just means we do not want an item back just b/c you didn't like it.You should make sure it is what you want. You still get your investment returned if you and ebay decide the ad was misleading in any way.also my items ship to europe mostly ,the shipping cost is high.
I hope that heps.
thanks

Your video shows some pavement going under the gondola. It does not show how to lay out the chute, and get things going. I stand by my first post. Sorry, but as stated above, that's a lot of money for a gondola. If business is that good, you can afford to shoot another video, and give us some real info

It does. I assumed that was the case and I find that to be a reasonable stance. Unfortunately no one has ever responded to me on ebay in that fashion. They have always responded with out really answering the question. The responses, to me, remind me of a used car salesman that wants to convince you to buy without really committing to a proper transaction that gives the buyer confidence.

For example I have yet to receive a response that says "we simply can not accept returns due to the fact that you decide you don't want it, but we WILL handle any and all issues related to broken or missing merchandise". That would give me confidence.

Looking at it from their point of view I guess they deal with people who decide to damage a product themselves in an effort to get their money back on an item that they decided they did not want??? I am not sure. But the refusal from a seller to state in writing that they are committed to insuring that I get a perfectly working item puts me at unease.

Anyway, this little rant is NOT aimed at you. It is just something that I have found frustrating while dealing with ebay and have never quite understood.

Looks like you have a cool product here. I hope you get some new sales going from RcGroups. I would love to see one fly in person!!!

very interesting item.
It would be great to see the take off from pilot's point of view though.

good luck with sales

Why the big price difference between the smaller ARF for $100 and the larger one for $350?
Very interested as these would be great to take with me while I'm travelling in AZ.
