PPG simmer now on board
Greetings from Michigan!
I've been meaning to join this site for quite a while, and just now finally got around to it! (what took me so long, eh??).
In the realm of ppg (powered paragliding) simulation, I've developed and built a ppg simulator. The sim features a paragliding harness with realistic brake and engine controls (running through Ilan Papini's Vehicle Simulator software).
My 1st prototype frame was made from PVC, and I've just completed my second prototype which is constructed from 1x2 steel channel and offers real paragliding risers and weight shift.
Photos and a build guide are available at: www.ppgsimulator.com

Pretty cool idea!
