73.84kph Paramotor Speed record ‘pending’ claim -pilot Dean Eldridge

It was a beautiful morning with very smooth air aloft. I took off right over the top of all the folks sleeping off their hangovers in their giant RV’s (motorhomes!) Running with the same weight as I weigh on my back through soft sand was a little challenging! The equipment performed faultlessly with maximum speed achieved at half throttle! Unfortunately I had the flu so I couldn’t carry as much weight as I would have liked, more next time!! Deano
