    It was nice to see Bill at the Redwood school today with his paragliders. Here is one of his videos.

    That's pretty cool and the first time I've ever seen and seen one fly ... cool stuff,

    When going for a take-off do we do a toss or kind of a running start like we would do for a kite?

    The guy who's video is above, Bill, has at least three paragliders of different manufacture from around $70 to $1000 I think he said.  He used to fly the 1:1 scale also.

    Bill posted a new video with his 'Ivon".

    Looks like there is not much to break in a crash, but the on board video at the end would make FPV a bit of a challenge to deal with.

    I wonder if anyone has done FPV with a paraglider?  With all the swaying it would be a challenge.
