Answering to Your right doubt on the difficulty to flap and land without provoke a risk of a physical damage. It's enough put the following changes (that it is a revamped): there are lines that are tied up from the oval over the pilot and go throught the end of the tail to two mechanical wrappers with a steel spring. (Their weight doesn't influence the stability of the parachute-paragliding) . These last are bind to the ankles of the pilot. So the pilot use his legs to activate their wrapping strength, enough to lower the tail allowing without doubts the flapping of the movable tail. About the landing of it, the “seat” where is set down the body of the pilot (from his shoulders to his knees) is open to allow to his legs to glide until his hips and landing as a typical parachuter.
Hello, I'm the inventor of a new type of parachute-paragliding. This new invention allows an unlimited autonomy of flight thanks to fact that it's possible to regain altitude just by flapping its movable tail. This is accomplished by moving legs up and down. Besides that, it also limits the possibility of crashes: there is a better control of manoeuvre and considering its tightened shape, it 's more difficult to get knots or suffer a tear. Moreover, elastic bands of reinforcements improve the stability. You can find an animation here: https://www.youtube.com/ watch?v=3BtPXtlC3hg What is your opinion about it? Regards, Dario Tumazzo
