Carbon Fiber single-hoop paramotor frame FC 1
DTpropeller’s product line announces a new arrival: Carbon Fiber single-hoop paramotor frame FC 1.
The FC 1 is a result of the evolution of many years of experience in developing carbon fiber products for the paramotor industry. Successful engineering and technological solutions in manufacturing carbon fiber propellers found their application in creating a paramotor frame. This allowed us to create a comfortable and reliable product improved upon a classical design using modern light, high-strength materials.
The development concept of the FC 1 is based on a classical shape of the paramotor frame, which
has proven to tolerate shock, loading, and also vibration and optimize a base rigidity.
All components of the paramotor frame (base, arms, and segments) are designed in accordance with aerodynamics principles to reduce air drag and increase efficiency.
The use of carbon fiber materials helped to produce lightweight parts with remarkable durability, high quality and an excellent aerodynamic profile.
Our frame is equipped with in-house S-arms. These swing arms are made of carbon, which provides high load resistance, lightweightness and coupled with thoughtful design improve the pilot experience and the comfort in flights.
Carbon anatomic seat back
The anatomically shaped carbon backrest evenly distributes the load on the pilot’s back and
reduces vibrations, thereby ensuring maximum comfort even during long flights and active piloting.
Moreover, with this anatomic backrest there is no need to use the foam insert in the back of the harness and hence the all-up weight reduces by 300-400 gr.
The FC 1 was equipped with all the necessary technology to balance the ultralight.
To compensate for the individual engine torques and to balance the paramotor, the frame has an ability to shift the points of swing arms suspension to 3 different positions allowing to calibrate the tilt angle, optimize the balance of the flight and improve comfort of the pilot.
The frame elements (rods, segments) are connected with the quick-split spring pins to simplify and quicken assemble and disassemble processes,
and more importantly, provide a safe and reliable foolproof assembling. The safety mesh surrounding the frame is made from ultra-strong Dyneema fiber.
The safety mesh is attached to the frame with cord. The replacement of mesh is easy and can be done with minimal effort and minimum tools.
Paramotor engine compatibilities
The FC 1 paramotor frame is designed to accommodate most paramotor engines. Please contact DTpropeller for further information on compatibilities.
The frame is adapted for installation on the DT propeller trike.
