See a birdseye view of the greater Ipswich area with this video, shot by a paramotor pilot as he took off from a snow-covered field in the town.

Pilots wear a small propellor like a backpack

Paramotors are an extremely simple version of a powered aircraft consisting of a small propeller which is worn like a backpack, this powers a motor and is worn under a paraglider wing.

The motor provides the thrust to take off, climb and maintain level flight, and means that you can take off from flat fields rather than finding a windy hill spot.

Action cameras are often used to record flights.
