I have some spare cash and always liked the idea of flying something.
I was thinking of getting into powered paragliding.
Has anyone here done this? Any advice?
I'm in the northeast US and the sport is very niche here and I've never known anyone that did it.
See, this is what sucks. I like paragliders and paramotors too, but /n/ told me to go to /asp/ and /asp/ told me to go /n/. I'm not OP btw.
/n/ is almost entirely bicycles
/asp/ is almost entirely fighting
But to answer your question, I don't recommend powered paragliding. Learn regular paragliding and buy an ultralight paraglider, they're not nearly as expensive as a powered paraglider and you can hike in and fly out. Speed gliding is really, really fun but it's a totally different ballgame than regular paragliding.
try asking /k/ how would they arm it, then derail your own thread by actual questions
