Juiced paramotors V2 has a new battery

V2 Has a new battery pack!

I finally received 8 x hobbyking 6s 8000mah lipo battery packs so i modified the V2 platform and soldered up the new wiring harness.

The video's below on my youtube channel show two test i performed a few days ago.

when i fly now i leave more power remaining in the battery packs to ensure they last longer over the charge cycles, my last battery pack was charged to the max and drained pretty much every time i flew and as a result the weak cells began to show, so this pack will be treated with more care.

25mins flight time 8miles covered 600ft gained some low flying some higher flying.


26.5mins flying time 12.1miles covered, maintaing 100ft ish and see how far i can fly

-All up weight of 15kg including harness and 20ah batteries.
-Small light weight aluminium frame with composite protection ring, all collapsible to fit into a suitable ruck sack.

Possibly the lightest powered flying machine? Imagine using this with a light weight parag...

Flying at the beach in fog and 8mph onshore wind

February 17, 2011

22 minutes flying time using a tiny bit of lift from the 2m high dunes and obviously the electric motor.

Good fun flying low level in and out of fog banks,

The motor gives good opportunities to fly from these kind of sites that don’t have enough lift for free flight, and are to sensitive to noisy petrol motors.

Im really looking into making my setup lighter so I can add mor...

Mixed lift flying test

February 13, 2011
Test flight on 12th feb 2011

Flown from slight hill as seen in previous videos,

Hill provides lift but not enough for free flight.

10 to 12 mph wind straight on to hill, air a bit bumpy so in flight i used some brake pressure to make wing more stable.

20ah battery used

Between 10 and 30 amps needed for level flight.

Battery pack temp at end of flight 20 degrees C

Duration 30 mins with plenty still left in battery pack, 44volts at end of flight. I should have flown for longer and fully depleted the ...
