Advance ALPHA 5 Paramotor (PAST MODEL)
Because of its good takeoff qualities, high stability and compactness the ALPHA 5 is ideally suitable for paramotoring. The EN/LTF certified Hybrid-Risers, which can also be used for flight without the motor, are recommended.
The Hybrid-Risers are fitted with two different hang points, so that the best match of harness and motor system can be achieved without having to change the brake line length.
The trimmers can be used for counteracting the turning effect of the motor, and adjusting the airspeed. For flight without a motor the trimmer loops can be hooked into the main carabiners, so as to keep the normal EN 926-2/LTF 91-09 certification status.
The Hybrid-Risers have a speed system, which can be used when flying without the motor.
Provided that it is equipped with the Hybrid-Risers appropriate to the glider size the ALPHA 5 has LTF 23-05 certification for sizes 26, 28 and 31 as well as EN 926-2/LTF 91-09 certification. The certified weight ranges are shown in tables below.
