Just wanted to tell you all at Paratoys,"Blackhawk" that I received my new Talon 175 paramotor and really happy with the quality built frame and engine. This thing is amazingly well engineered and built.


Last sunday I had the opportunity to solo for the first time with this unit.  The engine has so much power and climbed very nicely.  Smooth acceleration and not much torque steer when I hammered on the throttle.


Really want to thank all at Paratoys who have made my dream of flying a reality!  Words can't describe how in awe I was just after my first solo on the Talon 175.


Dealing with Mike at Paratoys was very pleasurable.  Very good customer service. I have recently been back for spare parts such as an extra prop and drive belt, "just in case."


I look forward to more business with you guys in the future! Already been planning my next opportunity for flight!


Thanks again!

"At Salton Sea 2013 I was offered a unique opportunity to get to know a new paramotoring wing before it's official

release. The Velocity Elektra though not in it's final form was an absolute delight... Let me start at the beginning though:


Flight test was from sea level, flying a Miniplane Top 80 with low hook in points. I was fully loading the 23M Elektra at 103kg.


Upon laying out the wing I was immediately impressed by the weight and construction of the glider. Modern materials

and battons in the nose and tail made inflation incredibly simple. The model I was flying did not have split A's but production

models have been promised with them (I'll very much look forward to that). The glider came up smoothly for a few minutes of light input

reverse kiting followed by a low wind forward with very little effort. The wing has a lot of energy upon launch so I  had to apply LOTS of

brake to keep the wing from overshooting on launch.


Once in the air I was shocked to find myself maintaining level flight at just 4,550rpm on the Top80... At 103kg I expected

to need a lot more power but the 23M Elektra seems to offer an astounding glide ratio, even loaded to the top end of the weight range.


Handling is similar to an EN C style glider but with a bit more forgiveness which is an obvious nod to it's DHV 1.2 styling.

Light inputs resulted in smooth turns without the traditional arm weariness you often get from a 1.2 wing. More aggressive inputs

along with heavy weight shifts proved to make this glider an absolute BLAST to fly.. Carving up the sky in a manner that made it

feel like an even smaller wing, but still with little power input necessary.


Flare authority was more than sufficient though the model I was flying had brakes that were long enough to be more comfortable

on a high hook in harness.


Overall, I'm very impressed by Velocity's new glider. I'll be adding one to my quiver of wings for both motor and free flight purposes".
