Open Source e-Powered Paraglider forum

Post by JuiceMeUp » Feb 22 2018 8:46pm

Hi Guys

I've noticed that a new forum has just gone live in the last few days

https://openppg.com

A guy by the YouTube name of PDWhite seems to be leading the charge. Here's a link to his channel where you can see Ver 1 in action:

I think there's a lot of value to be had with interested members here contributing to the discussion. I know I'm excited, and have been sketching up one on paper for too long now. May be time to get serious about it.

I've come on here exactly for this. Trying to source Battery cells and the electronics.

Pretty exciting stuff for sure.

Awesome. I've got a non-powered paraglider in my garage. I'm thinking of a couple Joby motors on 32-36in props. This setup would also work fine though and maybe package smaller overall with 4 props.

Each engine start sprays them into a shared atmosphere which includes beings not offered an opportunity to consent accepting these cancer experiences and defective genetics life experiences.

Every post is a free gift to the collective of minds composing the living bleeding edge of LEV development on our spaceship.

Yeah, I guess the zero-torque nature of the multiprop electric PPGs would be great for flying a paraglider wing without having to set it up specifically as a paramotor wing.
