Paralight’s Powered Paraglider Lineup

Spirit of “Ob”: Final Assembly

It’s well into the second week of the build, time to get this project finished and ready for test flight on Father’s Day.  The fuse and wing are framed just a few things to do, mount wing, final sanding, covering, hinges, install hardware, engine, fuel tank, radio gear, balance and set-up. During the construction of […]
