Just a piece of advice: please don't try to learn from videos only without
an instructor and a proper course. It is a sure way to have a serious
accident if you do it on your own. The instructor has to take decisions for
you at the beginning and decide when to fly and what to do in the air.
Otherwise it is extremely risky.
Enjoy your new hobby! It is the best thing ever (for me for sure).

great, thanks for the build details!
I am already checking some videos on youtube and it seems ok in terms of
airspace safety. I live in Brazil so it isn't like "outdoor-sports-police"
is going to show up and ask for permits or something, lol, I already see in
my mind where I could go practice, since the area I live has a nice weather
all around and good slopes and hills!
Besides the training, of course, I was mainly imagining what the best
practice would be in terms of flying low, wires, trees, landing, but a lot
of the videos altready cleared that up!

I worked with stainless steel, 20 x 1 mm and 25 x 1.5mm. Weight for the
bike is 14 kg of which the 7-speed hub gear weighs the most. Add the weight
of the harness and bags and mudguards and the final weight is 15.5 kg. I
will post some detailed photos when I get to them. Otherwise it is a
front-wheel-drive, front-wheel-steering bike, specifically made so when I
fold and secure the front section of the bike, I can walk with the bike on
my back (with the harness on me of course). The most important innovation
bike-wise is the 3D frame which serves as a protection for my back
(something like a chassis) and holds the bag in place + it is great as a
Mateus, you should try paragliding, but be warned, for some people it is
really addictive, you cannot let go of it (not for all though). Lots of
airspace regulations, but don't bother about it, that's not a concern at
the beginning and manageable when you get more skilled in the sport.

There is enough legislation for paragliding to go around. You are flying
after all. Start with a week course in the mountains to get the taste. Bit
be warned. It can be addictive. Being in the air wit no engine noise.

is there some kind of legislation limiting where you can glide? or is
it just training, practice and good sense when it comes to obstacles?

Thank you! Well, for me the fun in riding uphill is taking off and
flying even higher and farther indeed :)

great creation! I've never paraglided but I just felt like I was
missing part of the fun of riding up hill.

As a paraglider and biker myself. I would definately want one.

I have built a python for paragliding a few years ago. This is my
second version. It is not a python because it has positive steering,
lots of ideas of the python build are included in this bike. And it
and flies really well.
