LIGHTWEIGHT MEETS PARAMOTOR
The Vantage 3 represents a new concept of paramotor wing: light but durable, easy but fun to fly. Ideal for bivouac flying, it’s perfect for beginning and intermediate paramotor pilots, and even as a confidence-inspiring wing for free flying.
The Vantage 3 offers several advantages over a conventional paramotor wing:
- compact to pack and light to carry
- easy inflation and rapid lift-off
- intelligent mix of fabric for lightness and durability
- easy thermalling in free flight mode
- ideal for travelling, bivouac and light trike use
The Vantage 3 can also be used as a confidence-inspiring wing for free flying, taking paramotor pilots from their first steps without a motor on to thermalling and even XC.
True lightweight pedigree
The Vantage 3 was designed from the ground up as a lightweight paramotor wing. The handling is agile and fun, and the torque effect is reduced. It’s ideal for bivouac flying or just simply saving a bit of weight and space in your vehicle.
Light yet durable construction
The Vantage 3 achieves both lightness and durability by the intelligent mix of fabric in different locations of the canopy. The same hard-wearing fabric as normal paramotor gliders is used in wear-sensitive locations of the canopy, and lighter but still durable fabric is used in less critical areas such as the under surface.
The Vantage 3 also uses an increased number of upper lines for greater stability, yet the total line consumption is minimised thanks to careful optimisation of the line layout. The 3 risers and 2 span wise main lines offer both simplicity and performance.
Easy to inflate, fast to lift off
As a light wing, the Vantage 3 is simple to inflate even in less than ideal conditions. It requires only the gentlest pull yet comes up smoothly to a stable overhead position. What’s more, the aerodynamic characteristics of the profile result in the wing becoming airborne very quickly, ideal for short take-off runs.
Ideal for light trikes
The easy inflation and take-off characteristics also make the Vantage 3 ideal for light trike use. The wing has a natural tendency to stabilise in the centre.
User-friendly speed system
The Vantage 3 speed system is highly versatile, user-friendly and safe. 40% of the speed increase is provided by the trimmers, 60% by the speed bar. At the same time, it’s possible to use 100% of the brake range in all flight configurations (trim, open trimmers, accelerated).
