    Tornado 280 paramotor engine from Air Conception

    That is a good explanation, I'm sure I will get used to it.

    Tornado 280 paramotor engine from Air Conception

    comparing the tornado to my parajet zenith with bailey v5. it feels like the bailey has finer throttle control than the tornado (easier to footdrag with the bailey) another thing to get used to is if you let off on the throttle, the powerloss is instant, you swing backward when you suddenly drop the throttle. 40% - 50% power on the tornado feels like 100% power on the bailey.

    Bailey v5 "juddering"

    You were right, sand got into some of the connectors and caused corrosion. I cleaned it out and no more juddering.

    Tornado 280 paramotor engine from Air Conception

    I ordered 3 weeks ago and they had one ready to go in 1 weeks time! It is somewhere between France and New Zealand at the moment, hopefully I'll have it next week.

    Eprop on Bailey v5 (Parajet Zenith)

    Have you done this before? How did you get the studs out? they are smooth.It also look like the thread is bigger than the usual M5 thread.

    Eprop on Bailey v5 (Parajet Zenith)

    where can I buy them?
  9. I ordered a eprop for my Zenith with Bailey v5 but it does not fit. The studs and bolt is too short, the eprop has a thicker base, maybe 0.5 to 1cm thicker than the standard parajet 130cm prop. Anyone else here using a eprop on a bailey v5, did it fit, or did you fit longer studs and bolt? They said I can return the prop and they will send one with the correct base, but I'm in NZ so it will take weeks before I can get a new one.

    I ordered mine with the clutch for these reasons.

    Bailey v5 oil filter

    Can anyone tell me the make/size of the oil filter used in the Bailey v5? In the manual it says "Pleated paper (order from Bailey Aviation)"😑

    Air Conception Nitro 200 or Tornado 280

    I ordered the Tornado, the price difference between the Nitro and Tornado is so small that it does not make sense to go for the Nitro. The only possible negative aspect is the fuel consumption but I'm keeping my Zenith with Bailey v5 for cross country flights.
  14. the main problem is the upright bars that connects to the swing arms of the zenith, they are to short, so there is nothing that holds the seat up so that you can sit in it.
  15. I can confirm that the Zenith is not compatible with the Airone trike.
