  ParaPlane Pics Photo Gallery by David Flood at pbase.com
Here are some pics of the ParaPlane that Jared and I bought and 'restored' a few years ago, then later I completely rebuilt the thing using a Kawasaki 440 engine.
This is the same ParaPlane after the fan-cooled inline twin Kawasaki 440 was installed.
The original ParaPlanes used a cable setup (which I left intact) to link the steering bars for the wing to the nosewheel for ground steering.

The wheels of the main under-carriage have a wider wheelbase, which is very important for a paraplane, since it gives it much better side stability, simultaneously reducing the crankiness of the vehicle, both during the takeoff and the landing.
We should not forget that a paraplane, being a specific design in terms of the wing and the driving unit connection, is susceptible to overturning.
In paraplanes, the torque of the propeller is most often leveled by the usage of bearing belts of different length, connecting the wing with the driving unit.

 Transportation Appeal Tribunal of Canada Decision   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The witness said that the paraplane he saw on July 14, 2002, was the one in a photograph shown to him by the Minister’s representative, which was filed as Exhibit M-3 by the witness Gilles Tremblay.
She said the paraplane was similar to paraplane number 8 shown in a table prepared by the Respondent and representing several models of ultra-light aeroplanes.
This paraplane is known for the design and mounting on the undercarriage of four (4) Spiros or ovoid plastic wheels that allow for better directional control, greater stability during flight and increased control on landing.

The witness said that the paraplane he saw on July 14, 2002, was the one in a photograph shown to him by the Minister’s representative, which was filed as Exhibit M3 by the witness Gilles Tremblay.
He did not remember whether the Respondent’s paraplane had floats, but he clearly remembered that it was fitted with “wheels.” He could not say whether it was a “paraplane” or a “hang glider.” He readily admitted that the water craft and the paraplane had not collided but he submitted that this could have happened.
She noted, moreover, that his paraplane was “very, very low,” “about 40 feet from the water.” He seemed to be having a problem with a float, because he was making signs to her.

The paraplane is a small jet aircraft that also has a dirigible bag that can be used to provide buoyancy when the jet motor is not used.
Whilst the paraplane dirigible wouldnít need to lift anywhere near this weight, it gives an idea of the size of the dirigible envelope required to lift a substantial weight.

When the paraplane crashed due to a failure of the taking off, the horizontal control bar (fl) was seriously damaged.
In this case the paraplane becomes un-balance in the flights and finally may swing itself in the sky.
In this respect, note that in this paraplane the open angle of the canopy cannot be controlled, resulting in a fixed cruising speed for the horizontal flight.

 Aircraft patent invention
The slings are located symmetrically in respect the aircraft main base axis, the places of their fastening are either on the fuselage, or on the wing (feature "force element"-"gripped element connection to the aircraft").
For preservation of the controlled flight of the paraplane--aircraft system, the resulting force from the paraplane canopy is applied to the point usually higher than the aircraft mass center, and near to the mass center in the longitudinal direction.
The necessity to have onboard the paraplane and the paraplane operation serving devices (for example, two obligatory symmetric points of paraplane fastening to the aircraft appreciably complicate the paraplane stacking compartment design) is up to 20% of the maximal carrying capacity and up to 100% of the aircraft service cost; [0037] b.

The CG doesn’t matter in this case because flying a Paraplane is base on the lifting of the canopy.
When you fly a Paraplane, your canopy will play a very important role is to lift the canopy up, your motor will pull your canopy forward and the gravity will pull everything down to the earth.

 Chute the Sky!
The weight and location of the carriage ensured that the ParaPlane could not be forced into a spin, a dive, a stall, or any other aerobatic maneuver; in fact, the 160-pound aircraft couldn't pull any more than 1-1/2 times the force of gravity, even though its design could accommodate 9 Gs.
But the ParaPlane people won't let anyone aloft until he or she has been through the first-flight program, which consists of a video and a printed presentation, a written test, hands-on instruction, and a flight demonstration.
With no more discomfort than I would have felt riding a bicycle over a shallow curb, the ParaPlane was on the grass and rolling to a stop—I'd already pushed both foot levers forward to drop the canopy and pulled the throttle back to kill the engines.
