Miniplane Paramotor Assembly

Happy Flying!


IMPORTANT!!! Please Read This:

This is a 2 stroke engine and it MUST have oil mixed with the fuel!

As for fuel, we recommend the use of premium ethanol free gasoline (see Fuel Tips), mixed with a good semi-synthetic 50:1 2-stroke oil.

The Top 80 engine is made to use a semi-synthetic 2-stroke oil mixed at 2% (50:1) or a fully synthetic oil at a slightly leaner ratio of 1.7%. Do not mix a different fuel/oil ratio during break-in. See our Fuel Tips page for more information about what fuel to use.

Failure to mix the proper Synthetic Oil with your fuel even once will cause your engine to seize and void the warranty of your machine!


Gearbox Oil

Included with your Miniplane is a small bottle of oil (2 doses) that needs to be added to the Gearbox before use. Add 1/2 of the contents of the bottle (30-50cc, the remainder should be saved for your first oil change at at 10 hours) then seal the gearbox with the included Gearbox Vent Cap and tighten gently.


Maintenance Schedule

Your new Miniplane Paramotor has a schedule of regular maintenance that needs to be done as early as 10 hours of run time. Most thing are easy and quick, such as to re-torque the head and change the gear oil. Please refer to the Maintenance page for these important service recommendations for your machine. Torque recommendations can also be found on this page.


Pulling the Starter

Never pull the starter cord without grounding the Spark Plug! You can check for a spark with the Spark Plug out of the machine, but make sure it is grounded against the cylinder or other ground source. Pulling the Starter Handle without the Spark Plug installed and the Pulg Wire securely connected will permanantly damage your Ignition Coil! The repair for this is not so easy, even though the part is readily available and easy to see. Also make sure that you always install the 2mm aluminum washer under the spark plug - this is important for proper spacing inside the cylinder.


Spark Plug

Always install the Spark Plug Washer (aluminum 2mm) under the Spark Plug! This insures the proper spacing of the spark above the Piston. Failure to install this will result in damage to your Piston and possibly more! Also, Use red threadlock on the small top terminal threads (on the top of the Spark Plug) or the terminal WILL loosen and damage the spark plug boot! Adjust spark plug gap to .020” (0.5mm).
