Tips for buying paraglider engines



Paragliding is a great past time for those who like their hobbies a little on the adventurous side. Paragliding is a great hobby if you have a bit of space on your land, or if you have easy access to a large property. However, given the nature of paragliding, one thing that you may wish to think about when taking paragliding as a hobby is the quality of your equipment. This may not be as much of an issue when you hire a paraglider, but if you're looking to purchase your own, then one thing you should take into account is your paraglider engine.



Paraglider engines are fairly specialized, and as such there aren't a large number of manufacturers you can draw on when purchasing your paraglider engine. This has both pros and cons. The pros include being sure that the engine you purchase is specially designed for paragliding purposes, while cons include fewer choices in the type of product that you can buy. However, there are a few tips that you should keep in mind when looking to buy an engine for your paraglider, or if you're looking to upgrade.

The first thing you should take into consideration is the weight of the engine. Paragliders aren't designed to take a great deal of weight, and any additional weight on your paraglider will drag it down and prevent it from gliding to the best of your ability. Bear in mind that the placement of the engine is on you, after all. When paragliding, you'll have to start with it on your back, and the larger the engine, the heavier this will be on you. Larger engines will also require larger amounts of fuel, which can also add to the weight of the engine. So look for an engine that is both light and that does not require large amounts of fuel to run. A small engine with low fuel consumption needs is optimum.
