Some pictures of the construction:
1. Sewing the wing
2. Sail completed
Soon, more pictures.
a paraglider at home is a
very complicated task , and requires
hours of work. Previous experience is required, and very inventive.
As always remember that:
The free flight implies risks
that can only be known and they can be controled with a suitable formation
on the part of a recognized school.
Not test wings without knowing their
construction and test of experimental wings without certifying requires
deep knowledge of what is being made.
