On Tupper the World at Beach Blast
Posted on May 10, 2012 in Glenn Tupper
Beachblast is in full swing, today is Thursday and loads of people should arrive. There are already at least 100 pilots here and the Parajet and Paramania team have been having a literal blast showing off our stuff. Once the crew was assembled it was game time, Pascal, Paco, and myself have been putting on shows for the onlookers as well as for the local news channel.
I brought along my 700 foot long streamer and had a great time spiraling with it while Pascal and Paco chased the tail. Tuesday the brand new Parajet Zenith arrived. The excitement of opening the box and assembling the frame for the first time was astounding. What was even more astounding was getting the Zenith up in the air. The same engine, Thor 100, going from the volution custom to the Zenith was like flying a cargo aircraft and then jumping into a fighter jet. In the air she feels so slick, the lightness combined with the aerodynamics reduced my need for power for level flight by at least 15-20 percent. That is not the best thing however, the swing arms are incomparable to anything I have ever flown. Like on a motorcycle if you just think you want to turn left the bike turns, the same with the Zenith. This will prove to be priceless for my aerial photography as I can focus on getting the shot and turn with weight shift to make adjustments for setting up the perfect shot!!! Four more days left of fun in the sun here in Panama City Beach Florida with the Parajet and Paramania team!!! Representing the BRAND!!! Stay tuned for more action and excitement!!
