Fly Products Rider Series

The New Rider Series
Fly Products has been building paramotors longer than most any other company. Fly Products offers several lines of excellent foot launch and wheel launch systems. However, this section focuses on the new Rider series.

Why the Rider Series
There are many excellent Fly Products paramotor models. We singled out the Rider Series because we feel it offers unique value and performance for the mid size to large size pilot. In addition, we have narrowed the range further to the Thrust (Moster 185 Plus) and the Race (Top80) versions. These two engines are currently the most popular in the industry and manufacturers are waiting in line for engines to bolt onto their frames. Here are the highlights:

light weight   Thrust: 55 lbs **, Race: 46 lbs
solid strength   strong aluminum frame and cage
proven reliability   the two best engines on the market
excellent handling   low torque twist, easy launching
high quailty   fit and finish, details, and comfort
many options   configure and change as needed
great value   nicely equipped
**   555 pounds with carbon propellor option. With standard wood propellor 56 pounds.

Light Weight Frame
There are many paramotors that use the Moster 185 Plus and the Top80. The Rider Series paramotors are amount the lightest. Yet the Rider does not sacrifice strength and features. In fact, the Rider offers more options and features than most.

Solid Frame and Cage
The Rider frame and cage is one of the most robust available. Though no paramotor is indestructable, the Rider's sturdy frame helps prevent damage from a fall during launch or a hard landing. The cage webbing utilizes a tight weave increasing strength and protection from the propellor. Transport can also be hard on a paramotor. The solid design of the Rider makes it a good choice for those rough off road adventures.

Proven Reliability - Moster 185 Plus and Top80
The Vittorazi Moster 185 Plus is a remarkable breakthrough in power to weight ratio. Though no paramotor engine is as reliable as a Toyota, since the Moster was introduced almost 10 years ago, initial issues have been addressed and the engine now has an excellent track record, featuring smooth and quiet operation and with the Plus version has become the second most popular engine available. The Top80 reputation speaks for itself. The Top80 has remained the most popular engine for decades, highly supported and tweaked to perfection over the years.

Excellent Handling - new and advanced pilots
The Thrust is a great first motor because it's so easy to launch and fly. But can also be a super responsive paramotor for the advanced pilot. The new weight shift system makes the paramotor easy to ground handle, get airborne, and fly. The choice of harness sizes and adjustments makesthe transition from running to sitting effortless during takeoff. The Rider is a competition class paramotor with super responsive yet solid maneuvering.

High Quality - fit and finish, details, and comfort
From the carbon fiber cage spokes to the detailed user manual, it's clear that Fly Products has high quality standards. The harness, for example, is amazingly comfortable, in part because of the plush yet lightweight design, but also due to availability of different sizes. In the air, sitting in the Rider is relaxing and you feel almost no vibration. Assembling the Rider, you will find that all the parts fit together precisely and easily. The assembly process is well thought out.

Many Options - configure and change as needed
The Rider has several options. The decision process for these options require an understanding of a complex set of pros and cons for each unique situation. Please call for advice.

  Cage Options    
  Single Ring Cage Standard  
  Double Ring Cage $160  
  Propeller Options    
  Wood 125 cm Standard  
  Helix Carbon 2 blade 125 cm $175  
  Helix Carbon 3 blade 125 cm $385  
  Helix Carbon 2 blade 130 cm *** $175  
  Helix Carbon 3 blade 130 cm *** $385  
  *** 130 cm props require single ring cage    

Propellors and Harness systems can be purchased separately after the initial purchase of the paramotor. However, the cage type, single or double hoop, must be choosen during the initial purchase. Most new pilots choose the standard system.

The weights below are for the single ring cage and high hang point. Add 1 pound for the double ring cage.
