Plywood Paramotor

This was the first foray into personal aviation that came after taking a paramotor training course. I designed and built this laser cut, plywood paramotor over a week during spring break of 2017. Being 16 at the time, the prospective freedom of flying in my own personal vehicle was absolutely consuming and drove me to work ceaselessly for an entire week. All this to find out on the day of testing that it did not produce enough thrust for take off. After addressing the design failures, I set forth on the Coaxial Paramotor revision.
