Flying above the clouds and on-field repairs



While enjoying an epic trip among the clouds, my belt slips and I ended up doing some on-field repairs to get back up in the air. Thanks for the help Connor!

    Glad you got it fixed! It's always satisfying to be able to fix something and get that immediate feedback that it worked. Having had a situation myself where my prop was at risk of coming off (I had a crankcase/prop-hub failure in the metal mount) it might be interesting to get a closer look at what your situation looked like.

    Lol. I love the classic 3 paramotor questions…

    1. Do you need a license?
    2. How high can you go?
    3. What does it cost?

    Classic!

    Sorry about your motor trouble…..but I like when you have trouble and fix it on camera! I also own a Fresh Breeze and I use your videos to gain knowledge! Stay safe!

    Sweet paramotor. For almost a year I've bn flying in the afternoon with wind. Geez what a difference flying in the morning with nil wind and wet grass. My last two outings, I had to run for it. I agree, always build faith by flying your equipment after modifications or repairs.

    I don't understand what was the repair. so, is the prop housing just held on by a bolt? does it have torque specs?! is it like…loctited on or something?! Weird design.
    Anyway. fapping to your amazing take off field! not much of that where I live. great flight and video man.
