SkyBean ChaseCam is unique product dedicated to recording awesome videos and photos from a position behind the paragliding/paramotor pilot.
The shape is fine tuned to achieve as stable picture as possible without electronic stabilization. We spent hundreds of hours developing the ChaseCam using aerodynamic simulations and wind tunnel. The result is a product that will let you capture your flight safely from a unique and different perspective.
Simply insert your GoPro Camera into the housing and clip the bungee to the undersurface of your wing (best on the B or C line attachment points to avoid braking interference) and start the recording. The results are astounding - a view of you, the pilot, flying your paraglider or paramotor from behind!
The SkyBean ChaseCam was named because it does precisely that - it smoothly chases and follows you everywhere during your flight from a safe distance behind (and if you prefer, off to one side).
The problem with most of most "follow cams" is that they are not stable. There are many homemade design plans out there on YouTube, but try one out and you will see how they constantly move side to side, making the video completely unwatchable.
ChaseCam has conquered that problem with their innovative design. The shape, weight, size and design have perfected the in-flight movement to ensure smooth video every time.
View some of the videos produced by the SkyBean ChaseCam below and you will see the brilliance of this elegant design. There are plenty more on YouTube and Vimeo - simply search for SkyBean ChaseCam.
SkyBean ChaseCam weight is only 170 grams. In normal flight (aprox. 40km/h), it produces about 1.5N brake force, enough to fly in safe distance from lines.
SkyBean ChaseCam is connected to canopy with bungee rope, stretched only 13% during normal flight, what brings extra safety in case, if accidentally tangled up in lines. Please read user guide.

ChaseCam is produced in 3D printer, therefore its surface is not perfectly smooth. There are some small dots and dashes that are not possible to remove. Those do not affect usability of the device.
DISCLAIMER: Please read and be sure you thoroughly understand this disclaimer before flying a TrikeBuggy. Trike flying is an extremely demanding sport requiring exceptional levels of attention, judgment, maturity and self discipline. It is unlikely that you will be able to participate in it safely unless you make a conscious and continual commitment to your own safety. PPG and Hang Glider Trike flying is a dangerous sport and may result in injury and death even when practiced by a competent pilot using proper equipment. TrikeBuggies are not covered by product liability insurance, nor have they been designed manufactured or tested to any federal or state government airworthiness standards or regulations. Do not fly them unless you are willing to assume personally all risks in the sport of Trike flying, and all responsibility for any property damage, injury, or death which may result from your use of this TrikeBuggy. Safe operation of the TrikeBuggy requires a pilot proficiency equivalent to that of a BFI (Basic Flight Instructor), as well as an equivalent level of knowledge and understanding of those wind and weather conditions which may compromise the pilot's safe control of the TrikeBuggy. In particular, be advised that gusty winds or turbulent conditions may interfere with even an expert pilot's ability to safely control the TrikeBuggy, and may cause it to crash. Never take anything for granted in Trike Flying. If you are in doubt about anything, stop and figure it out or call TrikeBuggy. Also please read our Warning and Caution!
