INDOOR ! Powered paraglider

This Thread is old But VERY revelant in the recent intrest in RC paragliders here in the Kite forum . I have a 2 motor Micro star Screemer ( F -22 ) That I'm thinking on Building a even smaller, slower indoor version of this . With Winter coming on It would be perfect to fly almost anywhere , maybe even in the living room . Its VERY! simple to make . I will be using fan Fold for the ribs and plastic food wrap for the wing.
Indoor Paramoteur (3 min 37 sec)

And here is the thread
http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=763749
It looks to have a flexable spar in the leading edge . A long zip tie might do the trick here , or a strip of fan fold .

I'm hoping to use the vectored thrust set up like the Star Screem uses with motors positioned slightly inward projecting toward the nose . Decrese in one motor rpm will cause the gondola to twist slightly and then the wing will follow to turn. Both motors on full will cause it to climb . ..maybe ,,LOL!
it will be about half the size of the one in the vid

I think I came up with a very unique and eazy frame design. I'll be expermenting with it in the next few days . I want to build light so I can use a small- ish single surface wing some what like the pics in the first post . This one should be able to ROG with over size to scale 3 inch light weight foam wheels and has no prop cage . Like I said, its unique .
I may have photos up later in the week or weeks to come , depends on progress, and demands on my time .
