Title: Paramotor at 15,000 feet
Post by: iam4liberty on April 15, 2017, 10:12:36 PM
It is amazing how quickly the capabilities of paramotors are increasing.  In this video the pilot takes one to 15,000 feet:

Imagine the possibilities of a plane which fits in the back of a small car and costs only $8,000.

Oh my, this technology has improved so quickly.  Tucker Gott is now traveling the country living in a van and paramotoring.  Latest video is from Hoover Dam.  Well worth a look to understand how powerful this tech is.

The technology just keeps getting better.  This video shows potential as a short range bug out vehicle. Imagine being able to reach a boat off shore.
