Im thinking about a new machine. Ive  been looking at the Maverick (ive already got zenith and i do like the parajet guys) or maybe a PAP tinox with an atom 80. Has anyone got any recommendations? Cheers

I cant tell you anything about the PAP but I am the proud new owner of a maverick and from an engineering point of view it all feels like good stuff. Everything well machined and all fits like a glove. If I had to be super critical I would like to see the tank just a little shorter so it wasn't on the ground in the event of a bad landing. Im going to fit a motocross style skid plate under mine just in case. Also the fuel filler is in a proper twat of a spot. I am going to try and get a permanent funnel 3d printed.

Is there anyone out there with a tinox? if so what do you think? Whats it like to get into the harness after launch? That was the only thing i found to be a pain on my old PAP. The zenith is really easy to get into the seat after launch.

Pap all day long, easier to assemble, slightly lighter, cheap netting if it breaks, stronger main chassis for butt landings, great back up service from the UK main dealer 😉 

Your welcome to try before you buy

Weights are on the bottom of this page for all engines.

Watching your thread with interest.... my other thoughts are a AC nitro or miniplane. The latter sound very cheap to repair.

thanks. My latest paramotor is a skymax with atom 80, I am 88kg & after 2 mosters & a nitro this is my fave thus far. 19kg & low noise/vibration makes flying a joy :)

One of my Tinox Atom's is 19.4kg with apco split leg harness, the other is 21.3kg with the supair harness, 

The new supair has a pivot on the seat so it's easier to get in to 

Is there an option on the harness when buying from pap?

Yes, just specify when ordering, if you send an email flypapuk@gmail.com , state size and style 

 

Thanks Danny

Have you tried one with an eos 150 in? Just wondered what they were like compared to the moster?

Just to say i went for the PAP TINOX in the end and i am very pleased. Its a really nice bit of kit and way way easier to put together and take apart than the Maverick which was my other option. The 2020 moster is a big improvement over my older model too.
