James Allred is having a great time in this video, using his DJI Inspire 1 to follow him in the air as he travels along in his Paramotor.
Yes, James has a paramotor which is, all by itself, very cool. What is more cool, though, is this DJI Inspire 1 following behind his Paramotor.
What is a Paramotor? Per Wikipedia:
“Paramotor is a generic name for the propulsive portion of a powered paraglider (“PPG”). It consists of a frame that combines the motor, propeller, harness (with integrated seat) and cage. It provides two attachment points for the risers of a paraglider wing that allows for powered flight.
The term was first used by Englishman Mike Byrne in 1980 and popularized in France around 1986 when La Mouette began adapting power to the then-new paraglider wings.”
Per the team at TheDroneInfo.com, we simply say that it definitely looks like a very cool way to fly! And…. If you are James, who is lucky enough to have a DJI Inspire 1 following behind his Paramotor, then you are truly a lucky human being!
