The trike determines comfort and carrying capacity. It must be fit with a suitable engine and a suitable wing. It is not advisable to put a heavy wing and a powerful motor on a trike that can not support them. Conversely, a big, heavy trike will only encumber a light wing and can not be propelled by a small engine.
Key points to choose a trike :
- Comfort in the seat, sufficient space for the pilot and passenger, and equipment storing capacity.
- Shock absorbption and seat-to-ground height for rough terrain.
- Capacity and energy storage will determine autonomy in relation to engine consumption.
- Fairing and weight will influence: maneuverability, speed range, panoramic vision and protection from the cold.
- Not forgetting transportability of the aircraft.
La Mouette offers 3 very different trolleys in their functions
The SAMSON is a small foldable and transportable two-seater trolley close to the liberist philosophy (exploitation of the air mass) and the paramotor (storable and transportable by plane.) The speed range is slower than the other two trolleys and allows short landings and takeoffs and to apprehend all kinds of terrain. The cart favors maneuverability, lightness and simplicity as well as the cost of purchase and maintenance. Its maximum payload capacity (PTV) is 270kg. The high modularity of the trolley and the numerous motors that can be adapted to it offer a wide spectrum of configurations.
The RUSTIK is the big brother of the SAMSON, heavier and more solid, it remains compact and manoeuvrable and can bear more load (450kg). Its autonomy and speed are greater, the motors that are adapted to it are more powerful and stamp Rotax reliability. The cart has no fairing at the front, and the console remains discrete for maximum visibility. The ULM’s shock absorbers and hunting are high to allow landing in paths or fields less paved than traditional aerdromes. The tank has a capacity of 70L.
The VENTURA is the top of the range trolley in our collection. Fully streamlined, the passenger seat is separate from that of the pilot. The seat and bottom bracket are adjustable to accommodate different rider sizes. Mounted from the ORYX wing range, it is a high-performance trolley for travel, distance and speed.
