FLAT TOP is the worlds worst paramotor design, it is dangerous & imposible to launch! Video

Text from video

The real truth about this very poorly designed paramotor the Flat Top. How it has been destroying paragliders, is nearly impossible to launch off the ground and should be banned from the sport of powered paragliding. Chris sanacroce is a good instructor but he recently crashed on a flat top paramotor and broke his back, once again showing the real danger of this very poor design.. This pilot struggles with the awkward design of the FT frame and super heavy weights. This is a very experienced Pg pilot who was trained by Chris Sanacroce (before he broke his back on a Flat top) to fly paramotors. You can see he has damaged his glider so many times that he installed a second ring to the flat top cage made of PVC to try and stop the constant glider damage,. It is easy to say this is just pilot error but the reality is that the Flat top paramotor is a very long frame which makes it difficult to run with (along with the very heavy weight) and the strange giant j bars on the front of the harness make it very difficult for the pilot to move his arms and manipulate the risers on the glider to launch it.
Just plain bad design!
