NEW LowBoy III Quad Hybrid!

The BlackHawk LowBoy III Paramotor Quad:

 

The ALL NEW LowBoy III is Here:

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 28 lbs lighter sound? BlackHawk has incorporated 6061 large-diameter aluminum 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.

Paramotor Quad Takeoff Distance HOW MUCH ROOM TO TAKEOFF & LAND Paramotor Quad Takeoff Distance

One of the most common questions we get is “what size area do I need to takeoff and land in a LowBoy III?” Incredibly enough, skilled Pilots only need about 50-75 feet to takeoff, and just 25 feet to land! The unbeatable efficiency of our Velocity Paragliders and the lightweight design of BlackHawk units put these “flying machines” in a class of their own. This is why many Pilots utilize their own backyard as a flight-field, instead of needing access to a runway. The LowBoy III also comes STANDARD with BlackHawk’s Tundra Tires – turning your personal aircraft into a STOL (short takeoff or landing) Paramotor. This is the “Super Cub Bushplane of PPG!”

Why Are More Pilots Flying Wheels Than Ever Before: Flying Foot-Launch is a blast, but why are more Pilots moving towards Quads now? It takes only 3-5 days to learn to fly a Quad and nothing beats the safety of Quads – especially for beginners. Many Pilots realize how important “comfort and easy launches” are once the novelty of flying Foot-Launch starts to fade. Aside from weather conditions, Pilot comfort is one of the top reasons why people cut their flights short. If it isn’t comfortable, it’s not as enjoyable. If you want to get the very most from your flying experience (most safety, most easy, most comfortable), we hope you consider what other Pilots are doing and fly with wheels. The choice is yours! That’s why BlackHawk offers more flying choices than any other Manufacturer.

LowBoy III Hybrid Quad Features:

  • New thicker (1 1/4 inch) fiberglass suspension axles provide incredible strength and shock absorption – with more than a foot of wheel travel. Stainless Steel Quick-release pins are located throughout the platform – making it easier than ever to collapse the platform for travel or storage.

  • The LowBoy III is by far the safest and easiest way to fly a Powered Paraglider. BlackHawk’s all-new platform provides safety beyond any other PPG configuration. Especially in its capacity to handle the worst or most uneven terrain. Additionally, the quad can remain stable with an “off-center” paraglider, still staying upright on its wheels.

  • The LowBoy III is constructed with 6061 large-diameter aluminum tubing – providing the ultimate strength-to-weight ratio. With easy, straight-axle steering, high speed wheel bearings, comfortable racing seat (with cover), and a 4 point harness, “this is one bad LowBoy!”

  • Can be used for single or tandem passenger flight and features a low center of gravity. This provides for super easy launching and landing. The LowBoy III Quad is BlackHawk’s safest, most fun Paramotor platform to fly!

  • Entire frame can be disassembled in less then 5 minutes for compact travel.

  • Compatible with the INTRUDER 250 EFI 4-Stroke and the Cors-Air Black Bull engines. Comes STANDARD with the “Trike Mode” configuration only. The Quad front-end is sold as an upgrade (HIGHLY recommended for beginners and Tandem applications).

The Big Question: Trikes Vs. Quads

Why BlackHawk only offers Quads…

We get the trikes vs. quads question often. After years of training students, hundreds of hours in R&D, and many prototypes, we KNOW that the quad is the best, most stable and safest way to launch a powered paraglider. We build our quads with a low center of gravity and wide wheel base to offer the most stable quad on the market.

Jeff Goin, President of the US Powered Paragliding Association, posted this on his personal site, FootFlyer.com:

“A digression on Quads:”

I saw some extreme examples of the incredible stability offered by low CG quads. John’s (quad) was the most graphic, though. When another pilot was taxiing it, he got into some turbulence which started him swinging left/right. He lifted off and wound up hitting the pavement sideways, skidding to a stop. Had that been a trike or a anything with a higher CG, it would rolled immediately. In fact, there were two trikes that rolled and were damaged. But John’s and another similar unit, which endured highly tipful encounters, just skidded around.

Both incidents that I saw would have tipped most trikes. Mind you, I like trikes and, for experienced pilots, they’re fine. Quads have drawbacks, too, of course, namely in rough terrain because the wheels hit bumps unevenly. But overall, the evidence is overwhelming that you’re less likely to flip a low CG quad than a trike. And of course it makes sense given their broader overall base. Trikes can be improved, of course, by having a low CG and wide rear wheel base, but, all things being otherwise equal, quads are the best tool for beginners learning wheels.
