PURPOSE: To improve motor paraglider control feeling by arranging switch means for controlling a motor closely at the lower end of control lines of a wing-type parachute so as to enable a pilot to operate the control lines and to control motor operation simultaneously.
CONSTITUTION: A wing-type parachute which produces lift at the time of gliding is connected to the upper part of a frame 1 through riser belt portions 2 and hanger ropes, and also a harness 4 which holds the body of a pilot M, an engine 5 and a pair of propellers 6 are attached. Left and right control lines 28 which control the wing-type parachute by pulling operation are extended from left and right trailing edges of the wing-type parachute, and each operating grip 29 is connected to the lower end of each of the control lines 28. Grip main bodies 30 of the operating grips 29 to be gripped by the hands of the pilot M are furnished with various control parts, for controlling an engine 5 such as a starter button 32, a throttle button 33, a kill switch 34, and a position switch 35.
