Full Answer

The Paramotor Powered Paraglider travels from 22 to 30 mph, has excellent handling capabilities and is very safe to operate. At $5,500 to $9,500, this is one of the lower priced hang gliders and a good value for the price.

The Nanolight Trike Glider hits speeds of 24-63 mph, and the handling is excellent. Because of the wing configuration and the light weight, it has better maneuverability than the powered paraglider. The $9,000 to $18,000 price tag is higher, but with the added price comes more performance. It also fits in the back of a car for transport.

The Powered Parachute is priced between $9,000 and $24,000 and is simple to handle. It reaches speeds of 30 to 40 mph, which makes it a safer alternative to the faster Nanolight Glider, and with the help of a small trailer, transportation is easy.
