Be sensivive to inside brake input during turns or ….

Chris Montes had an exciting flight last Friday at North Boulder and he asked me to review if after he posted it.  Take a look at it and see my comments:

Chris,
Thanks for sending video. By looking at it several times, I think I know what happened:

1)Looks like you had your paramotor wing fully trimmed to the slow position—little brake input necessary to spin wing.
2)Your inside hand was very low so the brake is very engaged.
3) Your wing went behind you when you stalled the inside half of your wing.

4) Rotation shows your  wing spinning.
5) Your wing then surged in front of you  indicating release of brake—correct reaction to exit spin.

Message to get from incident: be more sensitive to brake inputs.

Glad you recover quickly from spin.
