This is a video John made to hopefully make the radio settings easier to understand.

How to program the H-King Paramotor for Spektrum HobbyKing (5 min 3 sec)

The HobbyKing™ Paramotor is extremely easy to fly due to its very gentle and stable flight characteristics yet once you are used to it, it will perform loops and rolls with ease. Due to the design the huge high performance 2400mm sail opens quickly for easy launching and it will retain its shape even in turbulence. The single skin durable sail is made from 100% ripstop fabric and comes pre-rigged with tough polyethylene lines and ready to attach to the durable aluminum gondola. It does require a computer radio with mixing and servo control curves, to see what is involved in the radio set up please watch the attached video and also the one for the setting up of the parafoil itself.

There is a high level of prefabrication so assembly time is minimal and it is Plug-N-Fly so all you require is your own transmitter, receiver, and battery. The Paramotor is fitted with a powerful 3530-1400KV brushless motor swinging a 10 x 4.7 propeller, it also has a 50 amp electronic speed controller with 5 amp BEC and 2 powerful 15kg high torque metal geared servos. A 3S lipo battery is recommended and it can vary in capacity to suit different flying conditions. The recommended flying weight is 1.6~2.0kg, in light wind conditions it is best to put a lighter battery in to keep near the 1.6kg weight. In windy conditions, it is better to put a heavier battery in to fly around the 2kg mark. The undercarriage is easily removed for hand launching and catching and also for slope soaring.

If you fancy trying something a little different then the HobbyKing™ Paramotor is for you. Great fun to fly without being too challenging and it looks great in the air. Pre-assembled and Plug N Fly also means you can be airborne very quickly after taking delivery.

Features:
• High performance powered parafoil
• Plug and Fly format ( you only require a Tx, Rx and battery)
• High level of prefabrication for quick assembly
• Gentle flight characteristics, however, it can perform loops and rolls
• Removable undercarriage for slope soaring etc
• Durable aluminum airframe
• Wide flying weight range (1.6~2kg)

Specs:
Type: Plug-N-Fly Paramotor
Parasail Span: 2400mm
Motor: 3530-1400KV brushless
Propeller: 10x4.7
ESC: 50amp

I think everyone is going to have an amazing time with these paramotors. I really do have to Thank James for all of his hard work on this project. The end result is something truly interesting and a stack of fun. I know I've had a lot of fun with these and even though i love EDF's there was something very relaxing about flying a paramotor. I was able to hand the controls over to a few people in the office who had never flown before and they are hooked and want to fly again.

So again, from all of us at Hobbyking a big thanks to James. It would not have been possible without you.

Thanks for pushing this James, I bought the old sail intending to 3D print a gondola but never got round to it. This one is so much cheaper than the rivals out there too!

I agree Ian and Chris. It is very fun to fly, is a nicely made kit, and a good value.

To your point about EDF's Ian, I have really been getting into the larger EDF's lately myself and I love how this is a ying to that yang.

I think I may be placing an order for one of these later today or tomorrow. I've been looking for an all in one solution at this price point for quite a while now. With the addition of a pilot figure it would be great.

James at RC Air Adventures has done a great job on 3 videos for assembly, setup and first flight of this Paramotor. Helped me get mine ready for its first flight! Save yourself a lot of time and learn from the expert.

John's video I posted above should help you with your Spektrum radio setup. It helped a lot with my DX6. The other video did not help as they work differently.

You'll be up all day with a 5000mah. Its just about perfect for weight and i only needed to add about 100 grams.
