  3. View Advert Full Trike Package, Ready To Fly Or May Split I have decided to go over to Sub70 flexwing, so I'm selling my complete Paramotor trike setup to fund the change. It's a great, purpose built unit, and great fun to fly, and has very low hours, as you can see from the listing. The trike was hand built by Danny kettle to fit perfectly onto the PaP 1450 chassis in June 2018, and the PaP Large harness was also brand new in June 2018. It has only been flown for 2 hours since new. The trike is made of stainless steel and billet aluminium and is powder coated in a grey sparkle finish which looks stunning with the sun shining on it. It is a very easy stripdown and setup, and it fits easily into the back of a standard hatchback car. From arriving at the field to being ready to fly takes approx 8-10 minutes! The engine is a Thor 190 Lite with ELECTRIC and MANUAL START, so is very easy to start on the ground and in the air. It was taken from my V3 chassis and has only clocked up 14.5 hours since new in August 2016. There is also a small flight deck for instruments, with the engine hours and rev counter and also engine temperature gauges, and there are 2 electrical feeds for mobile phone etc. I also have a Thule towball mounted carrier in the deal, and it has been modified to accept the paramotor and is simple to use and secure the motor to it. There is a used Helix 130cm prop, and also a brand new 130cm helix propellor with it. PLEASE NOTE, I WILL HAPPILY SELL THE PARAMOTOR CHASSIS AND HARNESS WITHOUT THE ENGINE, BUT THE ENGINE IS NOT FOR SALE ON ITS OWN, AS I MAY USE IT IN MY NEW FLEXWING IF SOMEONE JUST WANTS THE PARAMOTOR CHASSIS and/or trike. To get you really flying along there is my 28sq/m OZONE ROADSTER 2 wing, in CUSTOM COLOURS also included. This wing is everything the adverts say it is! Stable, responsive, excellent takeoff, wing tip steering etc etc, and it is plenty big enough to support the trike and up to a 100kg pilot. It was made for me on 27th December 2017, so is just 12 months old. I've flown it for 3 hours since new, and it has it's original paperwork etc from Ozone. Please note, there is no reserve parachute included in the deal. IN SUMMARY, FOR SALE IS PaP 1450 chassis with large PaP harness (June 2018) £1700, or fitted with Polini Thor Lite 190 Electric&Manual Start (August 2016) and 2x Helix propellors £3900 Custom built Danny Kettle trike (June 2018) £1000 28sq/m Ozone Roadster 2 wing (December 2017) £2500 Thule towball mounted carrier modified for paramotor £150 (not for seperate sale without paramotor chassis) TOTAL PRICE FOR ENTIRE SETUP £7550 (A SAVING OF £2000, IF PURCHASED BRAND NEW).

    I have decided to go over to Sub70 flexwing, so I'm selling my complete Paramotor trike setup to fund the change. It's a great, purpose built unit, and great fun to fly, and has very low hours, as you can see from the listing. The trike was hand built by Danny kettle to fit perfectly onto the PaP 1450 chassis in June 2018, and the PaP Large harness was also brand new in June 2018. It has only been flown for 2 hours since new. There are absolutely no modifications to the chassis to allow the trike to be attached, so it is able to be used as a standard foot launch paramotor also. The trike is made of stainless steel and billet aluminium and is powder coated in a grey sparkle finish which looks stunning with the sun shining on it. It is a very easy stripdown and setup, and it fits easily into the back of a standard hatchback car. From arriving at the field to being ready to fly takes approx 8-10 minutes!

    Polini 130 for Dummies

    A good resource for polini 130 advice is http://www.southwestairsports.com/ppgtechinfo/thor130/specs130200.htm It has links to various strip downs re builds and testing methods etc. If there's no one local you could trust have a look on their see if there's anything that can help. Heres a few others I've used in the past also http://www.wind-drifter.com/technical/wg8walbro.php http://southwestairsports.com/ppgtechinfo/thor130/thor130.htm http://footflyer.com/fix/motor/carburetor/walbro.htm http://inventions.aerocorsair.com/id35.htm

    Polini 130 for Dummies

    Thanks for the replies....the carb I have is a Walbro 8, I received the carb rebuild kit and I thought I was meticulously careful with everything I did, even photographed evert step so as to be sure I put it back together as it came apart. Not that easy for me to find someone with experience as I live out in the sticks in Thailand, and after seeing some of the way Thais approach things mechanical (not that I'm an expert...but I can tell the difference between competency and outright guessing), I don't feel I would trust a motorbike mechanic with something as important as my paramotor. Anyway thanks again for the replies...Cheers

    Polini 130 for Dummies

    Best thing you could do is take it to someone who has experience with 2 stroke motors ‘ also diaphragm carbs . your not that far from damaging your motor due to carb fault . Incorrect set up . It could save you time and money . cas.

    Polini 130 for Dummies

    One rule of fixing things is to be careful to only do one thing at a time. You initially said would not rev above cruise speed...which does sound like carb issue....usually not enough fuel getting through. Then you took the carb to pieces. Now you describe some new issues. These new issues are very likely to be due to the carb, since that is what you just played with. Before starting on new things first complete the carb set up. That "springy thing" is often a tricky one to set. What carb is it? List details and then ask someone with same carb to help.

    Polini 130 for Dummies

    I apologise in advance for this being a long thread...but I really need help. A brief history, my Polini 130 has 36 hours on it.....there was a downtime period of 6 months due waiting for new frame etc. When I started it after 6 months, to my surprise all seemed well. After 4 flights I had a semi engine failure after an hour flight...no response above cruise speed, landed, tried to restart...no joy. Now I must warn you that I am one of the rare breeds that has never, I repeat...never been involved with engines of any type...I changed my first spark plug a few weeks ago in my 58 years of age. I astounded myself in taking apart the carb, and replacing the rubber things and needle thing with the spring thingy and filter which had a fair bit of gunk in it, plus renewed the fuel filter. Next flight, engine started easy, but during warm up....it was "coughing" and "revving" without me moving the throttle. After a good 10 minutes of gently warming it up to full revs...it kept on decreasing revs when I held the throttle steady, but revved up again. Basically, imagine you revving the engine, but keeping the throttle in the same position...this is what was happening until I persisted and eventually it settled down and I flew....but only for 15 minutes. In my limited brain, I know something is not right. After much research, I found that a lot of carbon build-up on the piston and the head usually results in "hard to start"...but mine starts easy. So I was thinking I still need to take the head off and check for carbon build-up. This scares the crap out of me...I only have basic tools, no torque wrench or other fancy gear...if I go down this road, what do I need to have?...spare gasket, O-ring...what surprises are install for me?....and then what about putting it back together again, do I need special sticky stuff to put on the gasket and threads? Or is there some other simple reason that my motor is behaving this way? Any advice is greatly appreciated, as I really need to get back in the air again....6 months was way too long. Cheers Rsquared.

    Radial engine build

    One last photo to round off the year. A 'dry' assembly with all the 'front end' parts in place. This marks the completion of the induction side of the engine. Next will be the oil supply, scavenge, oil tank, primary drive and ignition systems.

  15. I know some time back a lot of the Titanium exhausts equipped on the Moster 185 factory were seeing problems with cracking. Has this issue been resolved on the newer models?

    Hello again governor.

    I wanted to thank you once more for throwing such a great weekend. All of yours and the teams hard work is greatly appreciated not only by myself-  I am sure all of the other visitors who attended feel the same way. As it was my first fly-in I was not really sure what to expect but was pleasantly surprised not only by the whole set up but also massively by everyones friendliness and generosity.It was great to just stop and talk to people who I had never before met and feel like I had known them for ages. I cant wait for next years main event.

    p.s, Im after some cheap fireworks for Nov 5th if you know of any lol.

    Chheers mate,

    This year we have chosen Cheltenham Spa as our location for the RDA, PMC main summer event. It honestly is an amazing venue! Of course there will be Fireworks, Music, A selection of food vendors, 24-hour fire pit, and 24-hour licensed security. (more to come ) What's this RDA thing??? This year, the PMC has chosen to support the RDA (Riding for Disabled) which is a super cool national charity who provide therapy through horse contact. RDA research shows that riders experience significant positive change in their capacities for communication, confidence, enjoyment, relating, physical improvement and learning horsemanship. Because this event is a Charity event, please note the slightly different pricing structure below. Full PMC members £10 in the charity pot (pretty please) Not a full PMC member and flying? £30 (or click > and join as a full member before the event for £30 and enjoy 3 fly-ins a year FOC!) Non Flying guest, partner £25 Children under 16 £0 Tandem flights will be available (please PM well in advance if your keen) There will be Fireworks! Big ones, it may or may not work as planned but either way, they will be big and they will go off ! lol Food, we have: Vegetarian and meat wraps van, pizza van, and a burger van. : Of course there will be a 'heated' bar, and the fire pit (you do NOT need to bring logs this time!! ) As always we will have the impossible to replicate, amazing PMC 'vibe' which is created by the awesome people that attend! To quote the very first PMC t-shirt, It's the Pilots that make the Party! (free pint for anyone that turns up that still has one of these!!) lol More info to follow, 200 pilots max so please ensure you RSVP (log in and use the green button at the top of the page that says GOING ) As always, we hope to see you there!!! PM or post a message if you have any questions.

    Trike plans

    I avoided all 2 of these issues by using the trike and engine of an old powered parachute. Very rugged, durable and has the engine forward of the rear axle to avoid the dreaded turtle...........I admit however that it is overweight. The CAA have increased the defined weight of a microlight in recent years as they accept that it can be hazardous to build down to a lower weight limit, but we end up with only 70Kgs. I'm not sure that I fully understand their reasoning on this.

    I would be very interested if you're willing to sell as a kit. I have 3 concerns with a number of existing trike designs: 1 drag (as above); 2 'turtle' on takeoff; 3 rough ground capabilities. Will watch closely on developments. Richard.

    Sounds about right. Mine took 6.5 hours to make....but I do have a mini engineering workshop, which made it easier.

    Trike plans

    I have been keeping my cool while watching this thread... But it's time to say something!!! lol I have a trike design at the moment getting built for a couple of people. My aim is to make it accessible to all in about 6-months time. PMC full members can have them at cost + £150 All others can have them at cost + £300 I should not have posted this yet, but hey ho... I have because I am excited about it! lol Pics and stuff to follow as the build happens. SW
