The glider

Composition d'un paramoteur

    1. The air inlet of the cells on the leading edge allows the stake in pressure of the wing and makes its profile.
    2. The wing is made with special very resistant Polyester (including the ageing).
    3. The trailing edge is bound with brakes, which allow the control of the wing.
    4. The wing is connected with the harness through very strong Kevlar lines.
    5. The risers, together with the lines, are used by the pilot to inflate the wing before the takeoff.

Wings

A paramotor or a PPG, what is it ?

The engine group

  1. The protection cage allows the lines to slide along during the inflation.
  2. The propeller passes on the power of the engine and generates the thrust. Propellers are made of wood or composite (carbon).
  3. The engine is most of the time 2 stroke, mono cylider, air cooled, from 80 to 210 cc for about 14 to 26 hp up to the models.
  4. The fuel tank has a 10-16 liter capacity for a 3-5 hour flight autonomy.
  5. The hand throttle controls the engine rpm and has 2 buttons: one for the electric starter, one to turn off the engine. The digital tachometer aslo shows the total running hours.

The starting up of the engine is made with an electric starter which can restart in flight. The regime of the engine is controlled by the hand throttle: increasing power make you rise, decreasing or turning the engine off allows you to come down. With the good engine rpm, you can maintain a cruise flight.

Paramotor Motorizations

 

 

The paramotor harness

  1. Karabiners allow to fix the risers s to the harness.
  2. The security buckles allow to close the belts of the harness to maintain the pilot safely sat on the board of the harness..
  3. It is very comfortable and allows to fly hours without tiredness.
  • Pre-equipment for reserve parachute (optional).
  • The engine frame is attached to the harness.
  • Adventure harnesses are very comfortable and are pre-set to receive a radio, some accessories and a reserve.
