Focus Group: Varios

With the release of the new crop of wings Dudek Nucleon and the Paramania Fusion with its paraglider perfomance are two that spring to mind that will motor fast and thermal on slow. We find a new collection of paramotor pilots looking at varios.

To keep it interesting we will pick out some of the top varios leading the technology.
