- Performance Freedom Flying
The Charger is a full-blood reflex paramotoring glider and was designed for a wide range of fresh, intermediate and advanced paramotoring pilots looking for relaxed flying. Easy launching and landing, a high amount of stability and a good cruising speed is what makes the Charger one smooth ride!
Looks and Feels Good!

The Charger is simple to control on the ground and in the air. The safety in the Charger is best admired by pilots that are looking for a paraglider resistant to collapse. With this glider you can keep your eyes on the scenery instead of being worried about what’s coming next. Flying the Charger you will notice immediately how well it is able to perform everything you need to enjoy the flight without feeling like your missing out.

No Time Wasted on Launch – perfect for initial PPG training

Easy launching characteristics are typical of all MACPARA gliders. The research and development team paid extra attention to the handling of the Charger during take-off and how well it flares for landing. You will feel like a pro with its exceptional take off characteristics to get you flying right after inflation with no hassles. It will stay above your head without the tendency to collapse or wander off course. The Charger offers easy landings even in nil-wind conditions and when heavily loaded by a good portion of flair. The light-moderate brake pressure allows pleasant turns during long flights, but increases progressively toward the end of its travel to offer safety reserves.

Why does it Performs So Well?

The glider is undemanding and resistant to collapse even in rough air thanks to the customized reflex airfoils. The Charger has given more attention to the airfoil resulting in a noticeably penetration and in flight stability. The smooth shape of the airfoil nose is maintained by long lasting Mylar reinforcement combined with new age plastic rods. It features excellent stability throughout the full weight and speed range. The canopy is well roll damped but offers a good flexibility and agility in turns. It does not overshoot or sit back.

MAC PARA Design and Quality

The Charger is yet another quality made glider by MACPARA that will continue to perform for the years to come. The construction using diagonal ribs and a system of load-bearing tapes gives the canopy stability and helps keep a clean profile. The Charger has 46 cells and a nice elliptically shaped canopy with an aspect ratio of 5.14. The glider is light. Just 5.6 kg for the medium size including paramotoring risers with trimmers and wingtip steering handles.

Standard features that makes Fun

Thanks to the serial risers including trimmers and speed system, its speed can be operated to the pilot’s wishes. With closed trimmers is its climbing performance closer to a level of normal paragliders. By released trimmers the speed increases significantly. By long transitions in full reflex mode the wing can be controlled by wingtip steering handles. They are perfectly placed on risers and are brilliantly set that the forces are very similar to those of serial brakes. With this baby you can play in all conditions. A perfect all around glider with plenty of performance to enjoy.

Great attention to details

The Charger is equipped as standard with especially thin semi-rigid brake handles with swivels, neodymium magnets and soft loop extensions. The risers features two pulleys for lower and higher attachments of your paramotor. The wing tip steering handles are hold in right position by rubber lines and are connected to the risers by neodymium magnets and can be secured with press buttons.

Quality you can Trust

The use of high-quality materials and constant quality control throughout the manufacturing process produces high quality products. We use Aramid-Kevlar lines of proven series that guarantee correct geometry of your canopy throughout its life.

You can choose from three serial designs. If you have different color preferences, make your own design.

You will feel that flying with the Charger will energize you.
