The Snake is available with a wide range of modern two-stroke paramotor engines. All of these offer much higher levels of reliability and power-to-weight ratio compared with older microlight engines, and also benefit from worldwide spares and support.
Airplay are UK dealers for Vittorazi, Corsair and also hold a stock of the now-discontinued Cisco range of engines. All engines are available with either recoil only or dual electric+recoil start systems. Thrust is provided either by a specialised wooden propellor or carbon E-prop for enhanced durability.
Please note our recommended engine option will vary depending on wing choice and pilot background; please contact us for an informal chat.
The most suitable Vittorazi engine is the Moster Silent, rated at 25Hp. Exceptionally quiet, the Moster has a very loyal following in the paramotor community. All Mosters sold with the Snake are the latest MY20 version, with revised exhaust for increased reliability.
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.
Airplay hold a limited stock of the Cisco C-Max 175 (27Hp) and Bull Max (33Hp). Notable for their addition of an internal counter-balance shaft the Cisco engines produce significantly less vibration than is normal for a single-cylinder motor. Although new engines are no longer in production, Cisco still offer a full warranty on new engines and Airplay hold a large stock of common spares to ensure on-going support.
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.
