The most bizarre clouds ever

Our team had a spectacular early morning flight in Wales. But the most exciting and overwhelming were the clouds of peculiar round shape, looking like extra terrestial formation. One of the best flights ever.

Flight of the year so far

Had an absolutely stunning cross country flight tonight.
Were flying literally along the wall of black clouds - I have seen nothing like this in-flight thought my 7 years of flying. To avoid the heavy turbulence we flew inbetween the layers of the clouds and it was just awesome.

Moster Classic starter pulley issue and fix.

Recently we came across an issue with the Moster Classic pull starter.
I replaced my old starter pulley system with a new one and within a few flights I got a problem. The cable stopped retracting after pulling. This situation can quickly become unsafe as my Moster has no clutch and the cable can easily damage the prop if it is loose.

Flying paramotor under VMC/IMC and high altitude flights, review of the UK Air Law.

Following our report on 17 000 feet flights we did earlier we were often asked a few questions on the UK Air Law and particularly two questions:
1. Is it mandatory to use the transponders when flying at and over FL 100.
2. What are the rules for paramotors flying under VFR/IFR (Visual Flight Rules /Instrumental Flights Rules).

SupAir harnesses speedbar attachment types

We just wanted to share with you our experience in using a speed bar with a SupAir harnesses. We fly with the speed bar fully pressed a lot of the time. The way the speed bar is attached has a direct influence on safety and comfort during flight. Our team flies SkyMax Paramotors. However the experience gained should be applicable to all Paramotor's with S horns and SupAir harnesses. 

To start with, 
SupAir harness has three points of speed bar attachment. The pulleys are mounted in points 1 and 2 and it seems that most pilots do not know about point 3.
