TrikeBuggy Bullet & Minari Paramotor Combo
The TrikeBuggy Bullet is our flagship PPG Trike -tried, true and proven to be the best wheeled launch vehicle available for a Paramotor. This design is for the paraglider version only and is FAA Part 103 legal as an Ultralight Vehicle or Aircraft.
NEW BULLET V3.2
Also Available: TrikeBuggy Bullet "Stretch" V3.2
The TrikeBuggy Bullet uses an incredibly robust Stainless Steel Kite Buggy as the foundation for this unique PPG Trike. The new design allows the pilot to quickly dismount the motor for use as foot launch or to transport.
The Bullet also quickly disassembles for packing away and has it's own accessories such as Bullet A-Assists and Intuitive Foot Steering System made specially for this new trike design.
The Bullet also incorporates our latest innovation - the TrikeBuggy Low Hangpoint System. This allows the use of virtually any paraglider whether it has trimmers or not. The risers are positioned much lower than most PPG Trikes, bringing the brake position down to a comfortable reach for even the shortest pilots. This system is unique in the industry, since it allows the pilots to use their regular paraglider without making modifications to it.
The Low Hangpoint System is also noteworthy because it literally ties the paraglider to the Buggy, eliminating the need for any kind of harness system. You simply sit down and fasten your seat belt and go fly!
The low CG (center of gravity) is the same as the other TrikeBuggies, since we are using the same low seat and comfortable reclined seat position made possible by the Buggy. At 7" off the ground, this is the lowest pilot seat of any ultralight aircraft available today.
The TrikeBuggy Bullet has one more distinguishing feature - it includes the Bullet A-Assists at no additional charge. These great accessories make the inflation of the wing a snap, with no input needed from the pilot! Simply hook up the A-Assists and watch your glider come up evenly every time (well almost!). The glider gets the best chance at a perfect inflation, since the A-Assists always pull evenly on the A risers.
The TrikeBuggy Bullet Features:
When assembled, the TrikeBuggy Bullet V3.2 is 73" long (tip to tip on tires) and 63" wide, but the Slider axles can be shortened to less than 3 feet wide!
For pilots wanting a Paramotor to also use for foot launching, the optional color coordinated arness is also available. Foot launching pilots will find the Minari Paramotor very familiar and well balanced with the weight-shift Side Arms and comfortable harness of this machine. When you're ready to trike, the harness can be easily removed for use with the TrikeBuggy.
The Minari engine is easy to start, idles nicely and has a very smooth range of power. It has easy access to the midrange thrust which is great for cruising. Wrap this motor up to full power and experience one of the most powerful paramotor engines avilable today!
Minari Paramotors has designed a four-part aluminum cage that helpsto ensure the highest possible safety. Its construction provides shock dissipation so that the impact energy is spread throughout the frame which improves security and protects the engine against damage. The Cage sections are easily disassembled and organized in the included Cage Section Transport Bag.
From 23kg, it has an excellent power to weight ratio. The 180cc Minari Engine boasts a very impressive 75+kg of static thrust, which is enough to get anybody off the ground with little effort. For even more power, we offer the 200cc Minari F1-M9 CL engine version.
Minari paramotors come in a choice of five stunning colors (Green, Blue, Yellow, Red and Orange) on the five piece light weight sturdy aluminum black frame.
TrikeBuggy Bullet & Minari Paramotor Combo - Powerful, Reliable, Solid!
Minari makes some of the most reliable and powerful Paramotor engines available today.
Minari Paramotor engines are 2 stroke and 180cc, made to exacting standards and manufactured on CNC machines using modern technology and finished with special treatment. The cylinders are aluminium alloy Galsi 9 hardened, with the inside having a Nichel-Silicon plating and completely honed with diamond tools and plateau finishing. The pistons have diamond profiles and are completed with 2 rings chromed. The crankshafts are made of forged steel, completely finished. The exhaust system is well sectioned and supported.
The power of the new Minari engine on this frame is remarkable. The unit's dry weight is 52.5 lbs and it has a 12 liter tank for plenty of range. Now, pilots over 210 lbs, pilots at high altitudes or Tandem Instructors have a great Paramotor that will suit their needs!
This motor starts easily, and idles nicely right away, ready to give it's power! The Minari will require about 10 hours of "break-in" at 2.5% oil mix, when it will run a bit rich and blubber a bit. After 10 hours, the mixture is leaned out to 2% (50:1 synthetic 2-stroke oil) and the motor smooths out. It is important to understand this and break this engine inproperly. This way, the motor has the best chances of giving a long life of service. During the break-in, vary the throttle and do not use full power for more than a few seconds.
