While we were at Salton Sea (February 03-06) , I had the opportunity to try Alex Varv's Cors-Air Kangook paramotor with the Black Devil engine.
This machine was not entirely new to me, as Alex had told me almost all about it before. His new frame, the modified Kangook, is made in Canada by talented people that I have known very well for a long time.
I also sell the Kangook which has this unique 3 identical parts cage which are fully interchangeable.
Alex's Kangook with low weight shift, uses his Black Devil and is specially modified from the original version to eliminate torque and for a comfortable flight.
The harness is made by another person that I also know very well, JC Perren from Florida, and is good quality and comfortable. It was easy to sit in after take-off, without letting go the brakes.
During the entire flight, I could feel very little torque, if any,even at full power.
This machine is a huge difference from all the other machines I have flown with low attachment points.
The quality of the harness and the frame are very good and in my opinion, put this unit in the top 3 on the market .
Only one thing was not perfect, because there is always something: I thought that the motor was a bit tilting forward on take-off, but also had to remind myself that at 170 lbs, the Black Devil is very powerful for a little guy like me and also I could have adjusted the harness a bit more forward to help improve this behavior.
All together, I think that the new Cors-Air Kangook is a good addition to our sport and congratulate Alex Varv for his work.
