A new generation of wheeled Paramotor platforms: The ALL-NEW BlackHawk LowBoy III is going to be a game-changer in the Powered Paragliding Industry. BlackHawk has always been the leading innovator in the sport and this platform is no exception. In fact, it's the very FIRST Paramotor "Hybrid" platform produced by BlackHawk. This means the LowBoy III can be converted from a Quad to a Trike in just seconds. Flying in higher winds with uneven terrain, or just getting into the sport? Use the LowBoy III in "Quad-Mode" for extra lateral stability! Once you are an experienced Pilot and start traveling, you can put your LowBoy III into "Trike-Mode" and save some space. There's no need to choose now between a Quad or a Trike! You can enjoy both worlds without having to purchase both – exclusively from BlackHawk!

The LowBoy III Just Got a whole lot better: How does 12.7kg (28 lbs) lighter sound? BlackHawk has incorporated 6061 large-diameter aluminium tubing, making the platform lighter without sacrificing durability. The LowBoy III comes standard with our Tundra-style tires now and features thicker fiberglass axles for even more added strength. With quick-release pins located throughout the platform, it's never been easier to collapse or fold it for transporting. BlackHawk has incorporated a new multi-positional hang point system. This allows Pilots to adjust the Paramotor's center-of-gravity very quickly and with consistent precision.

Prior to commercial application, hundreds of these engines were tested in both aviation & extreme-racing conditions to literally “perfect” this engine. The AERO-100 250cc EFI 4-Stroke weighs & costs about the same as many of today’s modern 2-stroke motors, yet it features the RELIABILITY you would expect from a high-performance aviation-grade 4-stroke motor! The AERO-100 is extremely fuel-efficient and drastically reduces emissions.

Featuring Electronic Fuel Injection (EFI): The AERO-100 250cc EFI 4-Stroke automatically monitors and adjusts it’s self for air density, thereby eliminating the need for constant carburetor adjustments. EFI also provides a smoother running engine, more power, and dramatically increases fuel efficiency. This combined with water cooling, puts this engine at a level unseen in Paramotoring before.

The new AERO-100 250cc EFI 4-Stroke Paramotor was designed to handle the demands of Pilots who want to go the distance. Cross-country Paramotor Pilots can fly with the performance of a high-tech racing engine, and the unmatched reliability of a 4-stroke motor! In the recent past, 4-stroke Paramotors were heavy, complex, and costly. The AERO-100 250 changes all of that!

This new 4-Stroke also increases fuel efficiency beyond anything we've seen in a motor of this class! Welcome to the lightest, most reliable, and most affordable 4-Stroke engine this sport has seen for its displacement! In fact the AERO-100 “weighs in at 30kg (65 lbs), INCLUDING the battery, exhaust, electric start, carby, oil, & water !” That’s equivalent to many 2-strokes on the market!

You want long-lasting with minimal maintenance? The AERO-100 250cc EFI 4-Stroke is equipped with a timing chain and ALL rotating parts inside the bloc have roller or needle bearings. A diaphragm oil pump supplies oil to the integrated dry sump. The AERO-100 250 is water-cooled, achieving an average of 168-218C running temperature at level flight, compared to 193~260C (380~500F) for 2-Stroke motors! All these little things add up to increase the lifetime of a 4-stroke.  In fact, the AERO-100 Manufacturer recommends an engine rebuild at 500 hours which is unheard of with a 2-stroke motor.

The simplicity, dependability, and durability of the new BlackHawk AERO-100 250cc EFI 4-Stroke is just another example of how BlackHawk Paramotors continues to reinvent aviation. If you are in the market for a NEW Paramotor with the absolute latest Industry technology, it doesn't get any “newer” than the 2016 AERO-100 250 4-Stroke!

This engine recommended for a MAXIMUM TOTAL PAYLOAD of 272kg (600 lbs).
