FALCON 4 STROKE PPG

 

Why a does the 4 stroke Para flyer have custom built, super-duty belt reduction?
Custom Machined Aluminum Billet re-drive Hub
On any ultralight aircraft after the 2 stroke engine, the belt reduction is the next most un-reliable component.  All Falcon's feature a custom four groove industrial v-belt drive system that is ‘over-built’ to the max.


The pulleys are turned and milled from solid 6061 aluminum billet, and the belt is Industrial Grade and replacements are available at Industrial Distributors all around the country. The Exclusive Falcon Re-Drive system is proven reliable and tough as nails!


The Falcon's reduction system is built here in the USA! The system is CNC Machined to exceed industry tolerances from 6061 Aluminum Billet. The Re-Drive System is proven, tough and reliable!

The Falcon 4 Stroke Para flyer has a unique low center of gravity

Study the Falcon’s design and you will notice that the engine is placed low in the frame. This very important feature contributes to secure handling and stability upon launch.

The Falcon 4 Stroke Para flyer  uses a Powder Coated all  welded steel frame!  

In a word it’s all about ‘TOUGHNESS’! Welded steel tube is uncompromising in strength and durability, and it easy to repair. Steel tube aviation airframes have been used since WWI.. Remember nothing is stronger than steel!

Do I need a license to fly the Falcon?
Not in the USA; the Falcon is classified as an ultralight so there is no license required, or available from the FAA.

How do I launch the Falcon?
Launching any Para-flyer will require training and practice. Essentially one would lay the paraglider out behind and centered on the power unit; to launch the pilot adds power to begin the forward roll, and at the same time slightly tugs the front glider lines. This action will cause the wing to inflate and rotate over head; now hit the gas and you’re off and flying.

Where can I launch from?
Launching a 4 stroke Falcon does not require a full airport runway, any grass field over 300’ long could work as your runway. Once trained you would also be welcome to fly from many small local airports.Nothing Beats the View from the Top!


Once I’m flying how do I control the 4 stroke Para-flyer?
The 4 stroke Falcon is steered in the air by pulling hand held toggles ('D' handles); if you pull the left toggle you will turn left, pull the right toggle and you will turn right. the harder you pull the faster the turn. Up and down is simply a matter of adding throttle to go up, and reducing throttle to go down

How high can I fly with my 4 stroke Para flyer?
To best enjoy a detailed ground view, most Para-flyer’s fly below 1000’ altitude. Usually you are allowed to fly much higher (up to 15000') if you wish. Your training will cover the heights allowed.

How fast can I fly?
The Falcon has a top speed of about 27mph, perfect for low and slow flying.

 

What happens if the engine quits while in flight?

In the unlikely event of an 'engine out' the Para-flyer is landed normally. In fact it's quite common for a Para-flyer pilot to intentionally shut down the engine as he prepares to land. The Paraglider (wing) allows for a comfortable landing with or without power. Powered Para-flyers find engine-out landing to be almost a 'non-event'
