Anyone thought this one through?

Pros:
Quieter (paramotor prop is in incredibly dirty air)
Safe to run cageless (???)
Easier to streamline

Cons:
Visibility
Noisier for the pilot
Can't use off-the-shelf paramotor
Potential balance issues (can be designed around)

What am I missing?

I thought I heard recently of somebody doing this... and google "pod paramotor".

Unfortunately the only hits for "pod paramotor" are this discussion... and the word pod is used so widely now in paragliding that it's difficult for me to find otherwise. Any more hints?
