Galvoflysoz Posted September 25, 2010 Share Posted September 25, 2010 Hi Guys need a bit of help here, This is my first Paramotor but I have about 100hrs flying PG about 50/50coastal and inland thermic, I am in western Australia and we don't have to many PPG pilots here and I am in a bit of a quandry as to what engine to get? I am 97kg (fat bastard) I have decided on the Kangook frame. I want to achieve some long distance Bivaque flying up the coast from perth to Broome, Gibb Rv Rd, A trip from esperence to Albany is being planned for Dec, I have mapped out on google Earth but the north trip has a distance of 200km between fuel stops (although I may be able to arrange with a station to hold some fuel) I was thing the new Ros 125 electric start, or the Vittorazi moster 185? But have been tossing up either the cyclone 160 Rotron or the Bailys V4200 , i read somewhere that these are for experienced pilots ? Why ? Is the weight or the power? Several of the boys have all learnt with Kobra Roccos and they have had no dramas at all (all coming from PG) My main concern is that I will have to carry my own oil as the roadhouses won't have it and just fueling up with unleaded sounds good to me as well, Plus they are more economical ,quieter, heavier yes but I can go further with the fuel. I can't seem to find any follow up info on how these motors are behaving themselves either? Are they lasting the distance Has anyone had any experience with the Moster 185, bailys or Rotron 160? So fuel economy is important as well as a bit of power as I will be carrying some food, water and sleeping kit. yes I know you may ask support vehicle , I would prefer to do it alone or with a friend and as an ex Kimberley tour guide I just love getting amongst it. Anyway i would appreciate some feed back from some knowledgable people. Good luck with the Oz adventure for those going . And if anyone wants to come to WA we have just started a new PPG forum (Club is being finalized) please visit us http://skypirates.freeforums.org/index. ... 8fcd5883c5 Galvo Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
