Paraglider Oxy 1.0 from Opale

Flying4Nature’s team try to find, build and show you nice and fascinating flying RC-technology. I always was passionate about parachutes and paragliders. After a short performance-cost analysis I decided to buy the Oxy 1.0 (incl. the E Backpack XS) from “Opale Paramodels” (France), in my opinion, the best leading company in RC paragliders. Below you can watch a short flight HD video and few pictures. You find the complete Oxy 1.0 review HERE (technical data, more pictures and comments). Don’t hesitate to contact us for questions!

For new experiences on a slope (or E drive out of the plane) to give a try or buy. Relatively easy to build (for everyone with a little RC experience) the Backpack XS has very good instructions. For ESC and RX, as always, personal solutions must be found. The individual parts from G10 fiber are very precisely built/designed , you need not cut or saw. Adhesive is fortunately not necessary! Calibration of the wing is challenging (length of the brake lines that are connected to the two servos) in the first toss. If you already have a bit of RC flight experience, this can be overcome without problem as well. IMPORTANT: NOT TOO MUCH GAS during start up, be subtle! I set the two servos (CH1 and CH6) and motor CH3 to the Futaba T14 flying wing program. The end point of the channels CH1 and CH6 (backward tilt) is programmed from 100% to 0%. Thus, the servos only move forward; curve separately/individually or both at the same time for braking.

    • Hi David, do you have enought balast? I had the same problem with the motor version. Try to put more weight, about 100-200g (lead) on it. Let my know, bye from Switzerland, team flying4nature
