ADAMA : : Ground Handling Wing :: Practice makes Perfect!
Product page: https://www.apcoaviation.com/adama ADAMA (translation “Earth”) is a ground handling training wing. Designed to be used in almost all wind conditions, it will simulate the behaviour of a full scale wing to train for the best practices without risking the equipment and more importantly the user’s safety. Adama is equally suited to both free flying or paramotor pilots wishing for the right training tool to perfect their inflation and ground handling skills. Dedicated use of the Adama will result in impressive mastering of your wing. Reverse launch, cobra inflation/deflation techniques, and full ground control are now all in short reach for any pilot training with the Adama. The Adama is also a great toy for anyone to play with. Family, especially kids can enjoy it, introducing them to the sport while keeping them entertained. Pilots should take it out and train whenever the wind is not good for take-off – as practice makes perfect. In any open space or in the nearest park, inflation training is always an attention grabber! Another advantage – no need to fold! Shove it in and out of the stuff bag in seconds – Adama has no elements which can deform and no special folding required. Constructed to last, it will withstand dragging on the ground and harsh abuse - use the Adama instead of wearing out your full size wing! *13 [m2 ] *Risers – full 3 risers system for “real wing” behavior *Trimmers – to accommodate large wind speed range. *Butt Holes (BT2) – passive release of any sand or debris from within the canopy. *Ideal training tool for schools *Simple design, robust materials – No special folding needed. *Small and compact, easy to pack and carry. *Designed to be used in combination with APCO’s First harness Available in “one size fits all”.

Didcot Railway Centre
I took a trip to Didcot Railway Centre in Oxfordshire hoping to get some interesting shots. I was in luck as some of the staff were being trained to drive a little loco. Probably one of the most pleasant afternoons I have ever spent! This film was graded using the awesome Film Convert software which turns red footage in to something really special! The music is from royltyfreekings.com. Camera - Red Epic Lenses - Canon 100-400mm L Series, Olympus Zuiko 16mm + 50mm primes. My setup was very simple. The Epic had the battery side grip and a 5" monitor + a few Red Volt batteries and 3 X 128gb mags. I also had a carbon fibre Manfrotto tripod which is both light and strong. The Epic is surprisingly easy to use and despite filming in 5K the footage is easy to edit and grade!
