USED TrikeBuggy Bullet & Rotron 294cc Paramotor This USED package includes the TrikeBuggy Bullet V3.0 along with the Parajet Rotron 294cc Rotary Paramotor, the Paraglider is NOT included.Thrust and adrenaline - the Cyclone 294cc Macro creates both in fractions of a second. Developed as the ultimate power unit, the 40 horsepower Rotron 294cc engine is just waiting to be released. It does so with such directness and intensity that you will feel completely at ease with the impressive 92kg of thrust. The Rotron 294cc delivers the highest power to weight ratio of any paramotor engine in the world and achieves such performance with less noise and zero reciprocating vibration. When it comes to its sexy looks, there is no compromise. Equipped with the latest Scimitar carbon prop, ergonomic weight-shift harness, 14 litre fuel tank and unique aerofoil cage - the Cyclone 294cc Macro’s sleek and stylish design far outweighs the ‘standard look’ you might come across when looking for your paramotor. “Parajet continues to come up with new, innovative gear…... It is easily the most powerful paramotor I’ve yet flown and also the first one I was unable to go to full power on. They’ve done a remarkable job, I have to say, engineering something light enough for foot launch but with a huge amount of thrust. I was extremely pleased and a bit surprised. The power I expected, the well-implemented torque management and quiet running were pleasant plusses. This is a polished machine that will make its experienced owner proud.” -Jeff Goin - 01/02/2010 - Salton SeaThis TrikeBuggy Package will only be sold to USPPA Certified PPG Pilots or training will be required. Contact us for more information about instruction and certification. TrikeBuggy - The Magnificent Microlight! Ever dreamed of flying? Of course you have, that's why you're here! But what sensation do you feel when you fly? Is it seated inside of a cockpit with your hands on a steering wheel or joystick? Not exactly the most intuitive or realistic connection to controlling the wing. How about a bar? Hanging suspended from the wing and pushing around a bar in the opposite direction to where you want to go is not quite what you had in mind? Maybe there's another way... Meet the TrikeBuggy! With this simple PPG Trike, the control of the wing is as natural as a bird - dip your left arm like the wing on a bird, and your craft turns left! Look right and lower your right arm and you turn right. Level flight is done by having a relaxed, light touch of the hands on the toggles while the gentle flare needed to gently set the vehicle down is done by simply applying both brakes just as you approach the ground. Totally intuitive and completely natural feel compared with any other aircraft available today. What is a PPG Trike? A PPG Trike is simply a powered paraglider backpack motor unit mounted to a three or four wheeled foot steerable trike, using a standard paraglider wing to achieve flight. A PPG Trike is light, around 100 pounds including the motor and trike. Motor size is anywhere from 100cc to 325cc, and the backpack motor is removable for foot-launched flight as well (with the same wing). The Problem PPG Trikes have been around for awhile, and their designs are many and varied. PPG Trikes all share many of the same benefits, but few are built to very robust standards. Some use cables to make the frame rigid and to give the trike a suspension. Others use carbon fiber or fiberglass axles to absorb shock. The biggest drawbacks to most are ease of use and overall durability. Trikebuggies have also been around for awhile, but the problem is that pilots were simply bolting their PPG motors onto the buggy and sitting in their harness, still attached to the motor. The result was a lot of bent comfort bars! Once these were repaired with a stronger material, the pilot could sit in their harness suspended from their motor. Then the problem was that the harness sat you up so high that you felt like you were sitting in a high chair! The center of gravity was very high, and these trikes were prone to toppling over quite easily. The trike offered virtually no protection in case of a rollover, and a lot of pilots ended up with scrapes and bruises (or worse!) from tipping over. Also, getting in and out of this design meant wiggling into your harness while it is attached to the trike. When launching, the wing picks you up by the harness, carrying the motor and finally, the trike along with it - changing and destabilizing the whole balance of the aircraft when going from taxi to flight. The front end literally falls away from your feet upon launching. There had to be a better way! The Solution Our Trikebuggy utilizes a stainless steel kitebuggy made solid by Flexifoil for the rigors of traction kiting. Kitebuggy riders often jump their buggies ten feet or more in the air, slamming the trike back to the ground again and again. Few PPG Trikes would stand up to this kind of abuse. Our signature Power Loops attach the buggy to the motor frame so that the pilot can actually sit in the buggy seat and fasten a simple seat belt - easy in, easy out, and very secure. The center of gravity is low, and the seated position is very comfortable. Plus, the trike doesn't feel like it is going to implode every time you put your weight on it. Launching and landing this little jewel is simply fun and enjoyable, since the balance is good both on the ground and in the air. The TrikeBuggy is an aircraft that is just big enough to carry the pilot and his gear, nothing more, nothing less. Unlike the PPC's that are massively overbuilt and overpowered, the TrikeBuggy is a personal aircraft. It has the power to climb as well as any good ultralight, and has the gliding performance to enjoy some quiet engine-off time. Being small and light has its advantages - it can be transported fully set up in a 6x10 foot trailer, or disassembled to fit into the smallest cars. If you have a pickup truck, it can be carried in the bed, and setup time is often under 5 minutes from arrival at the airfield. Light is also an advantage, and the TrikeBuggy comes in weighing much less than the 254 lb. limit for ultralight vehicles to operate under Part 103. Speaking of legal, many ultralight pilots are now looking for a way to continue the enjoyment of flying but are not interested in getting their Sport Pilot license to fly their heavier aircraft. With the TrikeBuggy, no license is needed, but a couple of days of good training and instruction will usually save money in rollover expenses. The TrikeBuggy is great for anyone that is concerned with trying to run out a launch in zero wind with a 60 lb. throbbing motor and spinning propeller on their back. With the TrikeBuggy, you simply sit down, fasten a seat belt and throttle into a taxi run while rolling on soft wheels made smooth with high-speed bearings. The takeoff can be done at full speed without the fear of falling down and risking injury. Landings are a breeze as well, since you can simply roll to a stop from touchdown, again at near full speed without concern. Gone are the days of dreading the landing in no wind, risking ankles, knees, props and cages. FOG's (Fine Old Guys) and women do well with the TrikeBuggy also, since it doesn't require one to be a bodybuilder to operate! Anyone with a prior injury, bad shoulder, weak knees or back problems can fly this aircraft all on their own. Having a low center of gravity has another advantage also, and that is protection in case of a rollover. Because the seat is so low, it positions the body in the center of the circle made by the cage. The trikeBuggy can literally roll all the way over, and as long as you keep your arms and legs in, the frame and cage will protect you. Of course, if you hit hard enough, you will break your cage, propeller and perhaps more, but that's what technique is all about. There's no other PPG Trike out there that will take hard landings as well as the TrikeBuggy. Versatile? Remember that the TrikeBuggy is made from a kite buggy, so when the wind comes up too strong for flying, we can remove the PPG motor and break out the traction kites for some wind-driven fun! From the Beginning... Development of the TrikeBuggy started with the Classic, then progressed to our Bullet. We now offer a TrikeBuggy Delta for use with a hang glider and the Transformer, a version that can be changed from paraglider to hang glider in about five minutes! We also have a four-stroke Thumper for those wanting a reliable cross country flying machine. When researching flying machines, consider all the options; ease of use, comfort, durability, versatility and sensation. The TrikeBuggy is simply the ultimate PPG or Delta Trike, or BOTH! Why the TrikeBuggy? The TrikeBuggy is a unique PPG Trike - For so many reasons! First, It's Easy! By easy, we mean that this Trike is about the simplest flying machine there is. It's easy to set up, easy to put in the back of your truck, easy to maintain and easy to FLY! Simple, because when you want to go fly, you just sit down, fasten a seat belt and GO! It's Versatile! The TrikeBuggy is the only Trike out there right now that offers you three ways to play - KITE - with a traction kite as a Kite Buggy, using the wind to cruise across a desert dry lake or beach at incredible speeds!PARA - with most any modern paraglider, as a PPG Trike that is likely the simplest and safest form of aviation ever devised! Now offered in two versions - the Classic TrikeBuggy and the TrikeBuggy Bullet! DELTA - with a hang glider as a delta wing trike, for faster speed and a carving feel to the control! No matter which way you choose, the TrikeBuggy is the most versatile airsport recreational vehicle on the planet! Can't Beat the Buggy! All three forms of fun are based on the solid foundation of our Stainless Steel Kite Buggy. We have yet to find a better value that meets our needs. Other Trikes use low-speed wheel bearings that will not last the way our Stainless Steel Buggy will. Most trikes use wimpy little skinny wheels that will not take even the slightest bump without sending you on an entirely different heading or bringing you to a complete and immediate stop. Our Kite Buggy is made of heavy stainless steel, where other buggies are made of steel, then chromed, and this is subject to peeling and rust. One hard landing on most buggies will bend the rear axle right away, but not this Buggy! This cart is made to take it. And while there is no "suspension" on the Buggy, there is enough give to the frame and the large wheels to give a very good ride. We can soften the air pressure in the tires if we need more cushion on a bumpy field. The Stainless Steel Kite Buggy has the best seat of any kite buggy on the market. Many buggies have comfortable seats, but they are held onto the frame with small plastic strap holders that we would not trust our lives to! Our Stainless Steel Buggy has a heavy-duty, well sewn seat, similar to that of a paragliding harness. This seat is tensioned with four very large plastic buckles, but the majority of the pilot's weight is suspended by the sewn portion of the seat, not the buckles. I have used other buggies where the seat simply slipped on the frame because of the attachments, not good for flying! Seating is Simple and Secure! Most PPG Trikes use the harness that comes with the paramotor for your seat. While this is fine if you are foot launching, it is kind of a pain to use when you are triking. Getting in and out of the harness, whether it is attached to the trike or not, is simply inconvenient and unnecessary. Just about every ultralight out there uses a simple seat with a two, three or four point seat belt. Since we're not going to stand up and try to walk around in the TrikeBuggy, we just don't need a harness! Just try to get out of the Buggy when you have the seat belt fastened - it's impossible! If you prefer a four point belt, we offer it as an option. We fly our TrikeBuggies in light conditions, not when it is windy or turbulent. We are simply not going to fall out of our seat while flying. As for whether it is as safe as a harness, look at the way the TrikeBuggy is put together - there are three redundant safety systems attaching the Power Loops to the buggy frame, and the Hang Strap and Caribiner is a standard in the industry. Our new Low Hangpoint Kit even allows you to attach the buggy frame directly to the paraglider using our extra-long Hang Straps. It's Safe! While safety is a relative term, mostly depending on the decisions of the pilot, the TrikeBuggy itself is a relatively safe aircraft. Flying with a paraglider or hang glider, the aircraft is an inherently stable flying machine - it virtually flies itself when no pilot input is given! Trim flight is achieved with either of these forms by simply having a light touch, allowing the aircraft to maintain its own equalibrium. We control the direction and altitude of flight with our controls, but the TrikeBuggy balances itself in flight naturally using the forces of gravity and the aerodynamics of the wing design to keep it stable. As long as we fly this microlight in fair weather, use a certified and inspected wing that is appropriate for our skill level and don't overcontrol it while in flight, this is perhaps the safest form of aviation there is! It's Protective! The other problem with using the harness included with your paramotor as your seat is that it holds your body much higher relative to the motor cage. Sitting on the harness seat without some kind of reinforcement will likely break the comfort bars, as they are not made for this kind of stress, but the real reason to dump the harness is to lower your body's Center of Gravity and utilize the protective feature of the lower seat position. If the "high chair" trike tips over, you go right over onto your head! With the TrikeBuggy, you are protected in the "bullet chamber" of the trike, as long as you keep your arms and legs in! If the TrikeBuggy rolls over, the front wheel and cage will contact the ground well before you do, and keep you protected inside the buggy. Also, if the unfortunate event of a rollover occurs, you can simply unclip the seat belt and slide out of the TrikeBuggy quickly and easily. Try that with a harness! You'll probably just scream for someone to come help turn you back over, since that's much easier! You don't have to run with the motor! Imagine running with a 70 pound throbbing motor screaming on your back while you try to control your paraglider during a launch run. It's a challenge, even for the best pilots - especially in no wind conditions, the nicest air to be flying in. Or when you return from a nice flight, only to find that the wind has died, and now you have to land in no wind! We only have one set of knees and ankles, let alone just one back and neck. The joy of wheeled launching and landing is spreading! Pilot's of all ages and abilities are discovering the ease of TrikeBuggy. New pilots enjoy the easy and smooth transition into flight that wheels allow, top pilots are now enjoying the advantage of wheels for flying in no wind conditions, or flying with a smaller, faster canopy. Now, the restriction on how far you can run wth the motor is only limited by your launching and landing field. Never get tempted into continuing a bad launch because you are too tired to run with the motor again! While our launch and landings do require a certail degree of skill and control, they are far from the effort exerted during foot-launched Powered Paragliding. It's Comfortable! One of the first things Powered Paraglider pilots do once they get airborne is (try to) get comfortable in their seat. What you see quite often is the pilot letting go of the brake toggles and reaching down to pull the harness under their butt to get seated. This is perhaps one of the most dangerous actions we see pilots doing. They often aren't even watching where they are going while they are doing it - they are more focused on getting into their seat! I've even seen a pilot hit the kill switch against the harness as he did this, causing a very bad crash as a result. The more conscientious pilots use a foot stirrup to "kick" themselves back into their seat, keeping their hands on the controls at all times. In the TrikeBuggy, you are already seated in an extremely comfortable semi-reclined position! Once you have launched and have cleared the landing field, you can dangle your legs over the edge of the seat and lean forward if you wish, taking advantage of the incredible unobstructed view from your TrikeBuggy! Long cross-country flights are made even more comfortable with our Intuitive Foot-Steering System, freeing up your hands to take pictures or wave to those envious onlookers! It's an Adventure! Flying allows the pilots to experience a completely different perspective of the planet, one that has intrigued mankind since the beginning of time. To fly like a bird, or perhaps even easier - glide like an eagle, there is absolutely nothing that compares with the feeling of flight! Cruising low along the ground, climbing high into the sky, flying effortlessly over forests and trees, gliding in gentle circles back to your truck, following a friend around the mountain, cruising with seagulls along the beach, circumnavigating a lake on a calm morning, doing touch and go's at the dry lake, flying the TrikeBuggy is simply an adventure! The TrikeBuggy Fits Your Life! Fits your Body! Fits your Budget! Fits in your Truck! Fits your Adventure!

TrikeBuggy - The Magnificent Microlight!

Ever dreamed of flying? Of course you have, that's why you're here!

But what sensation do you feel when you fly? Is it seated inside of a cockpit with your hands on a steering wheel or joystick? Not exactly the most intuitive or realistic connection to controlling the wing.

How about a bar? Hanging suspended from the wing and pushing around a bar in the opposite direction to where you want to go is not quite what you had in mind? Maybe there's another way...

Why the TrikeBuggy?

The TrikeBuggy is a unique PPG Trike -

For so many reasons!

 

First, It's Easy!

By easy, we mean that this Trike is about the simplest flying machine there is. It's easy to set up, easy to put in the back of your truck, easy to maintain and easy to FLY! Simple, because when you want to go fly, you just sit down, fasten a seat belt and GO!

It's Versatile!

The TrikeBuggy is the only Trike out there right now that offers you three ways to play -

  • KITE - with a traction kite as a Kite Buggy, using the wind to cruise across a desert dry lake or beach at incredible speeds!
  • PARA - with most any modern paraglider, as a PPG Trike that is likely the simplest and safest form of aviation ever devised! Now offered in two versions - the Classic TrikeBuggy and the TrikeBuggy Bullet!
  • DELTA - with a hang glider as a delta wing trike, for faster speed and a carving feel to the control!

No matter which way you choose, the TrikeBuggy is the most versatile airsport recreational vehicle on the planet!

Can't Beat the Buggy!

All three forms of fun are based on the solid foundation of our Stainless Steel Kite Buggy. We have yet to find a better value that meets our needs. Other Trikes use low-speed wheel bearings that will not last the way our Stainless Steel Buggy will. Most trikes use wimpy little skinny wheels that will not take even the slightest bump without sending you on an entirely different heading or bringing you to a complete and immediate stop.

Our Kite Buggy is made of heavy stainless steel, where other buggies are made of steel, then chromed, and this is subject to peeling and rust. One hard landing on most buggies will bend the rear axle right away, but not this Buggy! This cart is made to take it. And while there is no "suspension" on the Buggy, there is enough give to the frame and the large wheels to give a very good ride. We can soften the air pressure in the tires if we need more cushion on a bumpy field.

The Stainless Steel Kite Buggy has the best seat of any kite buggy on the market.

Our Stainless Steel Buggy has a heavy-duty, well sewn seat, similar to that of a paragliding harness. This seat is tensioned with four very large plastic buckles, but the majority of the pilot's weight is suspended by the sewn portion of the seat, not the buckles. I have used other buggies where the seat simply slipped on the frame because of the attachments, not good for flying!

Seating is Simple and Secure!

Most PPG Trikes use the harness that comes with the paramotor for your seat. While this is fine if you are foot launching, it is kind of a pain to use when you are triking. Getting in and out of the harness, whether it is attached to the trike or not, is simply inconvenient and unnecessary. Just about every ultralight out there uses a simple seat with a two, three or four point seat belt. Since we're not going to stand up and try to walk around in the TrikeBuggy, we just don't need a harness! Just try to get out of the Buggy when you have the seat belt fastened - it's impossible! If you prefer a four point belt, we offer it as an option.

As for whether it is as safe as a harness, look at the way the TrikeBuggy is put together - there are three redundant safety systems attaching the Power Loops to the buggy frame, and the Hang Strap and Caribiner is a standard in the industry. Our new Low Hangpoint Kit even allows you to attach the buggy frame directly to the paraglider using our extra-long Hang Straps.

It's Safe!

While safety is a relative term, mostly depending on the decisions of the pilot, the TrikeBuggy itself is a relatively safe aircraft. Flying with a paraglider or hang glider, the aircraft is an inherently stable flying machine - it virtually flies itself when no pilot input is given! Trim flight is achieved with either of these forms by simply having a light touch, allowing the aircraft to maintain its own equalibrium.

As long as we fly this microlight in fair weather, use a certified and inspected wing that is appropriate for our skill level and don't overcontrol it while in flight, this is perhaps the safest form of aviation there is!

It's Protective!

The other problem with using the harness included with your paramotor as your seat is that it holds your body much higher relative to the motor cage. Sitting on the harness seat without some kind of reinforcement will likely break the comfort bars, as they are not made for this kind of stress, but the real reason to dump the harness is to lower your body's Center of Gravity and utilize the protective feature of the lower seat position. If the "high chair" trike tips over, you go right over onto your head!

With the TrikeBuggy, you are protected in the "bullet chamber" of the trike, as long as you keep your arms and legs in! If the TrikeBuggy rolls over, the front wheel and cage will contact the ground well before you do, and keep you protected inside the buggy. Also, if the unfortunate event of a rollover occurs, you can simply unclip the seat belt and slide out of the TrikeBuggy quickly and easily. Try that with a harness! You'll probably just scream for someone to come help turn you back over, since that's much easier!

You don't have to run with the motor!

Imagine running with a 70 pound throbbing motor screaming on your back while you try to control your paraglider during a launch run. It's a challenge, even for the best pilots - especially in no wind conditions, the nicest air to be flying in. Or when you return from a nice flight, only to find that the wind has died, and now you have to land in no wind! We only have one set of knees and ankles, let alone just one back and neck.

The joy of wheeled launching and landing is spreading! Pilot's of all ages and abilities are discovering the ease of TrikeBuggy. New pilots enjoy the easy and smooth transition into flight that wheels allow, top pilots are now enjoying the advantage of wheels for flying in no wind conditions, or flying with a smaller, faster canopy. Now, the restriction on how far you can run wth the motor is only limited by your launching and landing field. Never get tempted into continuing a bad launch because you are too tired to run with the motor again! While our launch and landings do require a certail degree of skill and control, they are far from the effort exerted during foot-launched Powered Paragliding.

It's Comfortable!

One of the first things Powered Paraglider pilots do once they get airborne is (try to) get comfortable in their seat. What you see quite often is the pilot letting go of the brake toggles and reaching down to pull the harness under their butt to get seated. This is perhaps one of the most dangerous actions we see pilots doing. They often aren't even watching where they are going while they are doing it - they are more focused on getting into their seat! I've even seen a pilot hit the kill switch against the harness as he did this, causing a very bad crash as a result. The more conscientious pilots use a foot stirrup to "kick" themselves back into their seat, keeping their hands on the controls at all times.

In the TrikeBuggy, you are already seated in an extremely comfortable semi-reclined position! Once you have launched and have cleared the landing field, you can dangle your legs over the edge of the seat and lean forward if you wish, taking advantage of the incredible unobstructed view from your TrikeBuggy! Long cross-country flights are made even more comfortable with our Intuitive Foot-Steering System, freeing up your hands to take pictures or wave to those envious onlookers!

It's an Adventure!

Flying allows the pilots to experience a completely different perspective of the planet, one that has intrigued mankind since the beginning of time. To fly like a bird, or perhaps even easier - glide like an eagle, there is absolutely nothing that compares with the feeling of flight!

Cruising low along the ground, climbing high into the sky, flying effortlessly over forests and trees, gliding in gentle circles back to your truck, following a friend around the mountain, cruising with seagulls along the beach, circumnavigating a lake on a calm morning, doing touch and go's at the dry lake, flying the TrikeBuggy is simply an adventure!

USED TrikeBuggy Bullet & Rotron


This USED package includes the TrikeBuggy Bullet V3.0 along with the Parajet Rotron 294cc Rotary Paramotor, the Paraglider is NOT included.

Thrust and adrenaline - the Cyclone 294cc Macro creates both in fractions of a second. Developed as the ultimate power unit, the 40 horsepower Rotron 294cc engine is just waiting to be released. It does so with such directness and intensity that you will feel completely at ease with the impressive 92kg of thrust. The Rotron 294cc delivers the highest power to weight ratio of any paramotor engine in the world and achieves such performance with less noise and zero reciprocating vibration.

When it comes to its sexy looks, there is no compromise. Equipped with the latest Scimitar carbon prop, ergonomic weight-shift harness, 14 litre fuel tank and unique aerofoil cage - the Cyclone 294cc Macro’s sleek and stylish design far outweighs the ‘standard look’ you might come across when looking for your paramotor.

“Parajet continues to come up with new, innovative gear…... It is easily the most powerful paramotor I’ve yet flown and also the first one I was unable to go to full power on. They’ve done a remarkable job, I have to say, engineering something light enough for foot launch but with a huge amount of thrust. I was extremely pleased and a bit surprised. The power I expected, the well-implemented torque management and quiet running were pleasant plusses. This is a polished machine that will make its experienced owner proud.”
