H-King High Performance Paramotor Sunset Flight


Here is a video of John and I flying our H-King Paramotors at the same time at sunset

H-King Paramotor Sunset Flying with GB & John - Hobbyking PPG (9 min 14 sec)

Flight Battery Link: https://bit.ly/2HCQCzA

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.

• High performance powered parafoil

Very Cool


This rig is outside of my normal flight envelope but intriguing.

Watched too many of your videos -- pulled the trigger tonight. I'm thinking that ya need to have a mini flashlight or some LED package shining up on the para-sail to illuminate it for night flying.

I've seen that they are suppose to be easy to "loop or roll" but have not seen any maneuvers other than what I would call a toilet swirl.

I'm using OpenTx - so considering how to set up the Tx since ELE is only used for landing. Thinking of assigning ELE to the momentary switch or a slider -- or using a switch to allow ELE to be active. Also looks like a bit of throttle needs to be mixed into to the turns... would you call it AIL or RUD?

Any chance you'll have these at Wenatchee this weekend for the District XI Jamboree??

Hey Scott! I don't have plans to be in Wenatchee this weekend, but JohnVHRC was doing some tricks in an upcoming video that resulted in a crash from pretty high up. It still flies great and this flight was several flights after that crash.

I love this thing
