In paramotoring, a beginner wing is a wing with A, B, C, D and F (brake) lines.

When a full stall is induced, a pilot may fall a long, long ways before the wing will recover, and most will need to plan for it.

On a calm day, what is the vertical recovery distance for a beginner wing?

As an example, one could use the Gin Bolero 6

    $\begingroup$ It's difficult to find numbers like that. It's going to depend on how deeply you get into the stall. If you push it until the wing is folding back on itself, you are going to lose 50ft minimum even on an EN-A wing. If you get off the brakes as soon as the wing starts to fold, you may only lose 10-20 ft. $\endgroup$ – John K Jul 5 at 17:24
