FALCON 4 STROKE PPG

Why Buy a Falcon With a 4 Stroke Engine?

For starters lets look at two stroke motors:

Two Stroke motors have been around for years and held their rightful place. Lately however there has been a push towards more environmentally friendly outdoor products.  Manufactures of  boat motors, snowmobiles and motorcycles have mostly switched from two stroke to more reliable and earth friendly four stroke engines. Your Falcon with its clean, gas sipping, quiet motor will give you years of trouble free service.

Lets take a look a some of the reasons why:

  • Two stroke engines simply don't live as long as four stroke engines.

  • The lack of a dedicated lubrication system means that the moving parts of a two stroke engine wear-out faster.

  • Two stroke engines require a careful mix of oil in with the gas to lubricate the crankshaft, connecting rod and cylinder walls. Getting it wrong can destroy an expensive motor in a very short period of time.

  • Two stroke oil can be expensive ($60.00 a gallon.) Mixing ratio is about 4 ounces per gallon of gas: burning about a gallon of oil every 1,000 miles. You would not want to drive your car if it were polluting a gallon of oil in 1000 miles!

  • Two stroke engines do not use fuel efficiently, yielding fewer miles per gallon.

  • Two stroke engines create a lot more noise, requiring expensive air intake silencers and exhaust systems to manage the noise, this is not a problem until your neighbors start to point it out!

  • Because two stroke engines are designed to burn their oil (instead of changing and letting you recycle it) they produce more pollution.

  • Most Aviation two strokes require expensive aviation fuel. Using pump gas can shorten two stroke engine life considerably.

  • Two stroke engines will require re-jetting for flying in the different seasons of the year.  Using the wrong jet can be detrimental to engine life.

  • From The combustion of the oil in the gas. The oil makes all two stroke engines smoky to some extent, and a worn two stroke engine will emit more oily smoke.

 

More reasons for Para-flying with a 4 stroke engine.

 
  • 4 strokes use less FUEL than a 2 stroke.

  • 4 strokes use less expensive regular pump gas.

  • 4 strokes produce a lot less noise!

  • Engines have been engineered with longevity in mind.

  • Falcon 4 strokes all have electric start for safety..just sit in the seat turn the ignition key!

  • 4 strokes are almost maintenance free.

  • Local engine parts sourcing in every town, even in national chains of "Big Box Stores".

  • Repairs centers everywhere in the US.

A good industrial 4-stroke engine might remain in service for several thousand hours before needing major engine work. If you fly an hour a week (about 52 hours a year), at that usage level an industrial engine might easily run fine for 30 years without an overhaul!

Make your neighbors happy, stay environmentally friendly and buy a 4 stroke Falcon!
