As previously stated, here are the files for the V2 Frame, along with the complete Electric Power Pack (motor, ESC, battery with internals, and mounting system for it).
I have also been working on an ICE system, so whether you start off flying with an ICE motor and want to switch over to electric or vice versa, you can do so with great ease. Typically, using a frame that was previously designed for an ICE motor, it didn’t make much sense to switch over to electric and still use the same frame, as the mounting for the motor and battery would not work well. You would lose some of the best features, like the quick-swap battery system. To make this work, we had to design with both systems in mind from the ground up, so it truly can be an excellent ICE and electric unit.
So, if you are the type of pilot that really wants to be able to have the option for cross-country trips or 4+ hour flights, a frame like this is ideal. You can still choose to fly electric later if you want. Another nice feature is the lower entry cost for ICE compared to electric, so you can start with an ICE system and then switch to electric later if you wish. Of course, operating costs with ICE are going to be higher, but the advantage is that you don’t have to pay it upfront like with electric. For ICE cost, we will have final prices available soon, but I would expect it to be around $1000 less. Currently, the custom mold for the tank is being completed, and we should soon have a more final ICE overview along with the updated electric overview. I have about 40hr of flight time in the frame with the Atom 80 so have been ironing out the kinks.
I really want to make paramotoring easy to get into, as well as fun and safe. To make flying more attainable, it needs to be more affordable. So, with our upcoming ICE unit, I believe we can achieve this while still offering a safe and high-quality unit.
Electric Power Pack
All in all, it’s extremely convenient if you want to switch from one system to another. You can still use your same harness setup, gooseneck bars, frame, netting, and the same trailer hitch, among other things, in addition to being able to use the same replacement parts.
Please let me know if you have any questions or if you think something can be improved. Model it, test it out, and if it works well, we can incorporate it. You can access the files here Fusion ,and I will also be adding them to the Github.
