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.
Airplay 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.
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.
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.
The wooden propeller is the most affordable option. Finely crafted in Italy, they produce arguably the nicest sound of all the propellers available.
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 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.
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.
To help simplify the wide range of choices available to you, we’ve built a price calculator to weigh up the various options.
