Gravity Paramotors has one simple goal – build the best paramotor possible… Our team spent 8+ years working to develop the Defy and then 3 more to develop the Defiant!
No matter if you are new or experienced, the Defiant is designed by Pilots, for Pilots.

I work as an Aircraft Mechanic and space vehicles mechanic and by far this paramotor frame is at the pinnacle of design other than most aircraft parts I have worked with. The engineering and strength on the spars, tank and ACS including on fit, form and comfort exceed other paramotors. plus this is the paramotor you want to purchase if you are 220lbs and up to 260lbs. its a must get the ACS of which allows for bigger men to fly it comfortably and adjust the widths, plus the ACS makes it easier and faster to dissemble the motor by pulling the pins and leaving them attached to the harness, then the hoop and spars fit into a soft gun case with all items, as well the wing fits all together into the trunk of a Honda Accord with room to spare for a gas can. took the paramotor to fly the beaches of Mexico in the with the accord and pulled it out of the trunk and assembles in about 15 min, fly around and dissembles in about 10 min to put back into the trunk. this paramotor also rides great in the bed of my truck, just use 2 dirt bike straps on the ACS bars and 2 ratchet straps on the tank handles pulling in all for directions to the corners of your truck bed, again dissemble of the major components are very user friendly and i would say two tools needed for disassembly, only need a Allen wrench to tighten the net on reassembly and the Allen wrench to remove/install the prop bolts. i have a scout and it sucks compared to this defiant. also the Parajet maverick is nice but does not dissemble or assemble as fast as this gravity Paramotor. also must have is the Dudek comfort harness and Vitorazi 2021 prop.
This is my first paramotor, so my frame of reference is a little narrow, but my instructor was impressed with the defiant. The machining precision is very impressive. According to my instructor, it is a touch heavier than his frames (fresh breeze and P.A.P.) but a lot more comfortable because the engine and fuel is kept so close to the back. Launching is easy, nothing hits my legs as I run. The hoop is super strong and supports my weight (160 lbs). I have timed my assembly, it takes me 6 minutes, and disassembly only 3. I can slide it right into my small economy car. In flight, weight shift is super responsive. The adjustable offset for torque compensation is well thought out and easy to adjust. The swing arms clear my body well and do not interfere with controlling the glider. I know some say it can tip easy with no tubing frame to stand on, but the tripod setup of the defiant has not fallen over so far, no complaints there. My only gripe is the lack of fuel level indicator tick marks, since the tank changes shape drastically as it forms the frame it is hard to estimate actual gallons remaining. I will measure it out and add my own ticks though, this is not a major issue for me.
10/10 would recommend. Very affordable, made in the USA, and made well. Quick shipping .

I have flown most all the major Paramotor offerings and I have to say that the defiant absolutely delivers. My unit has now taken a pretty rough crash that I walked away from and my opinions have been solidified, this is an all around package. The ACS/DCS have allowed me to fine tune the torque offset and I can fly laser straight full power and weight shift hard turns both directions. My maiden flight was a nil wind launch with 5 gal nearly topping the tank off and it was a dream! Assembly/disassembly is about 5 minutes on breakdown and 10 on setup. I'm also impressed with the parts availability. No shipments from across the pond with this Paramotor. Happy flying!
I know you guys are busy. Looking forward to receiving this guy! But no review just yet. Have 5 stars because I know it will be brilliant :) Thanks
I am more than a little confused by your request for a review on my new paramotor. I have not received it, nor have I received any phone calls from you asking if I wanted the carbon fiber hoop. Nor have I received any replies from my emails asking you about the progress of my order. I never received a tracking number so have no idea where it is.
