ASSEMBLING
In an area with at least 7 ft. of free space for each side, assemble the outer cage in the sequence A,B,C,D,E

(To dismantle, proceed in the oppsosite order)

Insert the higher spokes A into the  frame, setting the net outward (in front while in flight) and do fix them in position by the screws. (3,9 x 6 mm)

insert on the protection sheath  the fiber bars (4) that will form the guarding arc, starting from the central ones and verifying for each ones that they reach the end of their housing.

 

 

If you miss to reach the end of the housing, besides hampering the right assembling, may break the bars and the bushes too.


The guarding net hampers the full extension of the inserted bars; to insert them properly you must carefully align them before housing otherwise they won't slip inside the bush.

Pay particular attention also when inserting the outer bars so to have each one aligned with the previous one

In case of a complete slipping off  of the outer bars while transporting : pay attention to the correct inserting side, the tip A is thinner in order to insert it in the metal bush joint inside the sheath, the other tip B is slightly thicker.

If properly inserted, the sheath must cover almost the full length of the bars, leaving out only 1-1,5 inches; should it be not the case before going on do verify the correct insertion of the bars  (you can be sure to  have reached the bottom of the housing if you hear a kind of tock sound)

Bend the arc and insert it on the base of the frame C, each side at a time.

To perform correctly this operation is necessary first to find a position that allows a continuous and complete movement.

To compensate the remarkable thrust of the arc, which otherwise could turn over the paramotor, it is necessary to lay a foot on a support tube of the frame and holding it with the help of a hand.

In order to insert the arc well on the base of the frame it is necessary to align with care the fiber bar and its housing in the frame before forcing it uselessly, with the help of your elbow leaned inside the arc to reach the right bending.

Warning.gif (151 byte) Exclaim.gif (1443 byte)Warning, pay attention to to foresee the necessary space and never leave the bar before having it properly inserted  into its housing, should you not be able to insert it do gently hold it while it gets back to its resting position  (horizontal).

To perform again this operation it will be necessary to look for a better position that allows  the complete movement.

Do insert the ergal spokes B into the frame and screw them.

The outward tips of the spokes must only be inserted into the joints.

The T joints in the sheath are provided with little teeth that hamper the spokes slipping off .

To dismantle 
is necessary to squeeze
the orange ring
before pulling
to draw out the spoke

7 Before stretching the guarding net, check its edges, during  transporting, the netting may get easily knotted.
Do gradually tend the tension string verifying the regular shaping of the net, do fix the 1st.  ring to its hook E after having it crossed under the fuel tank, passing before the frame's diagonal tube.

Do pass the tip around the tending string coming from the opposite side and couple the 2nd. ring to its hook  (see the drawing)

You can stretch more the net by making two turns of this kind before coupling the 2nd. ring 

 

You can pull the string until it gets difficult to misshape the net.

should you find too difficult to assemble the net, or if it does not stretch just right, please modify the tension string as required.

Do insert the harness spacers in the frame, passing outward the dorsal and specially to the belt of the shoulder pads arranged on the frame do bock . Block them by the supplied suitable click pin . The outer position allows a better flight position for robust pilots, the inner one is suitable for a lighter pilot while taking off and landing. In changing the harness spacers you must also change the harness settings.   check for the correct hooking  of spring-catches to the wing. (go to HARNESS SETTINGS )

Refueling must be relevant to the time of the flight. Should you take down the fuel tank pay attention to the suction lift. Avoid dusting or dirt it, don't lean it to the ground! Dust may enter the circuit and could damage the pump or the carburetor. 

Do fit the fuel tank replacing the little cap used for transport with with the circuit one provided with the suction pipe, in case the fuel tank is provided with a rigid suction pipe verify its correct insertion and orientation towards the tank's left corner.


Do fit the fuel tank from behind and the bottom as well, the vent pipe must stay far from the muffler.
Fix the fuel tank by the help of the supplied strap belt. 

Circuit pipes are longer than necessary to allow the dismantling of the fuel tank, when reassembling it, do pay attention not to squeeze them and check for the engine's vibrations not to push them close to the muffler, better if the stay before the vent pipe.

tubetto benzina.jpg (23129 byte)With the diaphragm carburetor, it will be necessary to recover the pipe in excess ad get it out sideways next to the pace bar, on order to avoid the contact with the muffler

  • With the float-type  carburetor the vent pipe is very long and it works also as returning pipe for the fuel in excess. Always remember to insert the returning pipe for the fuel in excess (flexible) into the vent/returning pipe to the fuel tank (rigid).

Do open the tap (if any).

Insert the Nylon protection in the lower part of the prop's guarding arch. 

Make sure the protection slides on the tube to the complete covering of it; avoid the formation of leaps.

This protection is to facilitate the sliding of the strings while inflating the wing, reducing friction and wear.

Set the battery on its seat and plug in paying attention to polarities. it is better to get the wire passing outward the frame in order to avoid any contact with the muffler.

Transport

the paramotor can be transported in most cars inside this special transport box.

 

 

If your paramotor is supplied with a float-type carburetor, it can be transported horizontally, provided that you empty the float chamber by dismantling (pay attention to correctly reassemble the float and gasket) or better yet, start the engine with the fuel tap shut. The time required to consume the fuel is 2or 3 minutes

The fuel tank must be removed and sealed.

 It is necessary to drain the fuel circuit of transport in the shipping box

You can perform the dismantling following the opposite order of  assembling and the same precautions.

While cleaning the paramotor before transporting, you can check the strength of the parts under strain.

 You must clean the propeller after every flight, as oil from exhaust gases may enter the varnish and penetrate the wood causing an imbalance.
