Engine options



The Snake is available with a variety of modern two-stroke paramotor engines. All of these offer much higher power-to-weight ratios compared with older microlight engines, and also benefit from worldwide spares and support.

Fun Flying are UK dealers for Vittorazi, Corsair and also hold spares for the now-discontinued Cisco range of engines. All engines are available with either recoil only or dual electric+recoil start systems, and a range of wooden or carbon propellers.

Please note our recommended engine option will vary depending on wing choice and pilot background; please contact us for an informal chat. We are also happy to supply a basic Snake for your own engine installation, or to quote for fitting your existing paramotor engine to a new trike.

Vittorazi

The most popular Vittorazi engine is the Moster Plus, rated at 25Hp. Combining light weight with ample power, the Moster has a very loyal following in the paramotor community. Airplay also can supply the Moster Factory R as a special order. This lightened version is rated at 27Hp and is available with recoil start only.

Cosmos 300 Engine

You now can add a significant amount of horsepower and climb performance to your Snake Flex-wing and Minifox fixed-wing with the latest Vittorazi Cosmos 300 engine. Delivering 36Hp at 7,500 RPM, you’ll never be short of power to get out of any strip. And still consuming only 3 litres per hour at a comfortable cruise of 4.500 RPM.

Cosmos 300 is the latest engine in the Vittorazi every growing stable of performance engines.  It gives you new possibilities to add to the Snake and the Minifox ultralights. You get so many features that characterise this engine conceived and designed to achieve the perfect balance between performance, safety and comfort.

The Cosmos 300 comes equipped with the Twin Spark technology giving you added safety and security.

You get constant optimal power thanks to the liquid cooling system which has the function of controlling and maintaining the adequate temperature in different environmental conditions.

You also have the option to add electric start making soaring and restarting a breeze!

Corsair

The Corsair range includes the 25Hp Black Devil and 33Hp Black Bull. Priced very competitively the Corsair range offer unbeatable horsepower-for-money. Corsair also offer a number of useful engine accessories including a generator coil and quick-release prop flange.

Propeller options

Wood

The wooden propeller is the most affordable option. Finely crafted in Italy, they produce arguably the nicest sound of all the propellers available.

E-prop

The carbon E-prop is manufactured in France. They are often significantly lighter than other propellers and in our experience produce the highest thrust in most cases.

Helix

Helix carbon-fibre propellers are manufactured in Germany. They are very durable and robust, and would normally be our recommendation if you are likely to be operating your Snake from long grass or other less-than-perfect flying sites.

Snake with Cisco C-Max and Bull Max engines
The Snake is available with a wide range of engine & propeller combinations.

Wing options

The Snake has been fully flight tested with the widest range of wings of any sub-70 nanolight currently on the UK market, made possible thanks to the extremely light weight of the trike. Take a look at our Wing Options page for more details.
