Paramotor Powered with Drone Motors

In a previous feature article I highlighted RCGroup.com user Foam and Tape's attempt to fly an RC plane with 50 motors.

Peter kept those motors and has built a powered back harness to hopefully get propel his paramotor! Watch the build and the flight attempt....

Two Questions


1) specs? - of each EDF unit - voltage, current, peak power, peak thrust, run time...

2) safety? - how's the pilot gonna eject the 25-unit frame, when it 'overheats'
because these type of videos are 'all about the fail'...
