IS FOR ME
Choosing the right paramotor might seem tricky. There are so many options, and online groups are full of pilots talking about their favorite brands and gear. The tough part is figuring out what’s important and making sure you get the best paramotor for your money. We’ve broken down the different parts of a paramotor setup and answered the main questions you need to think about to pick the right one for you. It’s a good idea to wait until after you’ve had training with a qualified instructor before choosing your first paramotor.
DIFFERENT TYPES OF ENGINE
The Atom 80 MY22 is the ideal engine for beginner pilots and pilots who do not require a lot of power. Lightness and simplicity are the adjectives that characterize it, having a very simple mechanics. The Atom 80 in flight is characterized by its low noise, a linear power delivery, low vibrations and low consumption allowing pilots to feel like they’re on the couch at home but with bird’s eye views.
The SAFARI 125 is the ideal engine for beginner / intermediate pilots. A engine with a bit more power compared to the Atom80 that will allow you to have a higher ascent rate and explore the world from above.
The Moster 185 MY22 is ideal for intermediate / advanced pilots. After years of development, the Moster 185 MY22 is the most complete engine on the market, having a simple mechanics, light, a linear power delivery and enough power to fly solo, in a trike, and even in tandem. With the Moster 185, you can make both cross-country and acrobatic flights.
The Moster 185 MY22 Dual is the version with Manual and Electric start of the Moster 185. The electric start will make it easier for you to start both on the ground and in the air
The Moster Factory R is the racing version of the Moster185 designed for pilots who want an extra power boost while maintaining all the features of the Moster 185 MY22. The Moster Factory R is a sleek engine with carbon finishes, an anodized engine casing with multiple color options, a chromed exhaust, and titanium bolts.
The THOR 202 is a engine designed for intermediate / advanced level pilots who like power and long distance flights. The low consumption of this engine is one of the highlights, 2.4L/H at 5000RPM. The THOR 202 is also a good engine for trike and tandem flights.
WHICH FRAME MATERIAL I NEED?
Depending on your experience and whether you are going to fly with foot launch or in a trike, a chassis material may suit you better, as the resistance and weight of the chassis vary depending on the material.
Stainless Steel: It is a durable material and easy to straighten in case you damage the chassis. It is recommended for trike takeoffs and for beginners.
Titanium: It is a lighter material than Stainless Steel, approximately 1kg less in the TINOX chassis, but it is slightly less resistant. It is recommended for intermediate to expert pilots and can be used for trike flying with some experience.
FOOT-LAUNCH OR TRIKE?
Paramotors can be launched in two primary ways: foot-launch and trike launch. Each method has its advantages, and the choice between them depends on the pilot’s preferences, physical capabilities, and specific flying requirements
- Portability: Foot-launching is generally more portable as it eliminates the need for additional equipment like a trike. Pilots can easily transport their paramotor on their back and launch from a variety of terrains.
- Agility: Foot-launching provides greater agility and maneuverability in flight since there is no additional equipment attached. Pilots have more freedom to perform aerobatics and navigate tight spaces.
- Simplicity: Foot-launching is often considered simpler, as there are fewer components involved.
- Comfort: Trike launch offers greater comfort during takeoff and landing. The pilot sits in a seat, eliminating the need to run during takeoff, which can be advantageous for individuals with physical limitations or those who prefer a more relaxed launch.
