Miniplane Long Range 140 Rigid Cage Paramotor

Fly High - Fly Far!           Fly Long Range!!


The MINIPLANE Long Range Paramotor has raised the bar for efficiency and performance in the 80cc engine category!

The new wider propeller is made possible by a new Gearbox with a reduction ratio that spins the wide 130cm propeller at a slower RPM while still allowing the engine to rev to the optimal RPM. The result is a quieter and more powerful machine than the skinny blade 130cm propeller found on the standard Miniplane with the 19:73 gearbox.

Using the same 80cc Top 80 Engine, this new paramotor continues the tradition of efficiency and low fuel consumption that Miniplane has always been known for.

The improved gearing and specially designed propeller makes pilots smile when they feel the improved thrust, performance and quiet operation of this new machine.

The new fully rigid cage with aerfoil shaped outer ring gives the pilot confidence without adding undue weight to the paramotor.

Miniplane Paramotor has always been known for the incredible reliability of it's Top 80 engine. It gained the highest rating of any paramotor in a survey done in 2011 (Paramotor Survey LINK). Plus, the parts support from Miniplane-USA gives American pilots the confidence to have access to any part needed to make a repair quickly.

Miniplane's Long Range 140 Paramotor is the same size as the original Miniplane Flex cage and the LR 150 is slightly larger, but they are a world of difference! The gearbox/propeller combo on each size offers incredible thrust, sound and efficiency advantages over the original Flex Cage design that needs to be experienced to fully appreciate the benefits. No other paramotor has this ability at this time!

There are also many other improvements to the harness, fuel delivery, priming and so much more that you need to see to believe.

Now, with the option of an 18L Fuel Tank, your Miniplane has the capacity for MASSIVE Long Range explorations in the air! Even the regular tank provides many hours of flight time, more than enough for the average pilot to enjoy the magic of personal flight.


The MINIPLANE Long Range Paramotor has been designed based on the extensive experience acquired by the company Per Il Volo over the last 30 years as a paramotor manufacturer.



A new Standard from Miniplane!

The Miniplane Long Range project is based on the innovative Rigid 150 Paramotor made by Per Il Volo.

Now, our ability to fly higher and farther is made possible with a bigger and wider propeller turning more slowly, which offers better thrust with lower noise.

The wider propeller is made possible by a new gearbox and reduction ratio that allows the Top 80 engine to use a wider propeller than ever before while still staying within the necessary RPM range of the engine.

Available with the standard 12L fuel tank or Long Range 18L tank for even more extended range.


Titanium Cage

Also available now is the new Miniplane Titanium Cage LR Paramotor!

The MINIPLANE LR Titanium propeller protection arc (Cage and Foot) is built with the same specification as the corresponding aluminum one.

It is made up of the 4 Cage sections plus the Foot (Frame is Aluminum).

It weighs a mere 280 grams more than the aluminum counterpart, but it offers superior strength, a better plastic deformation capacity which allows it to be straightened more easily after deformation in the event of an impact. It also offers incredible resistance to oxidation.

The production system that we have adopted with constant production precision, guarantees that the spare parts will perfectly fit in the future.

Color is as shown here: Titanium Cage & Foot are not painted, they are the natural color of Titanium which does not need paint.

This Cage & Foot is also available in our Parts section as an upgrade for existing Long Range owners, look HERE.


Improvements over the Rigid 150:

  • New Cage & Frame design as compared to the Rigid 150.
  • Frame is 16 mm diameter instead of 20mm.
  • Ring profile is 10x22mm instead of 10x20mm.
  • Cage sections are the same for 12L and 18L ABM or PSF (diameter is different from 140 to 150).
  • New "S" arms, with more space for the pilot.
  • Frame is 2 cm more width on central part, normally will not need a spacer on the ABM for a 80 kg pilot. Spacers are still available (10 or 20mm) for extra-wide pilots.
  • Now possible to mount a float style carburetor (the same that is used for competition) which gives VERY low fuel consumption.
  • Entirely made in a CNC molder, so the spare parts will be perfect.
  • Fast and easy to assemble the cage.
  • Some improvements on the engine as well: The anti-corrosion anodizing of the new engine cases have a significant visual impact, but especially they will better protect the engine in the harshest environments. The new casings are lighter and some redesigned details have made it possible to improve the operating stability and efficiency of the engine.


Performance like Never Before!

In general, every aspect of performance is improved. There is better efficiency of the propeller (higher aspect ratio) so more thrust is obtained with less energy consumption. A larger propeller needs adequate protection that is not offered by Miniplane's traditional flexible fiberglass ring cage.


The solution for propeller protection is Miniplane's new cage built with a high strength aluminum drop-shaped aerofoil profile.

The new reduction ratio makes the propeller turn more slowly. Thanks to this increased efficiency, during horizontal flight the noise is greatly reduced making the flight more relaxing for the pilot with less noise disturbance for those who are watching from the ground.

The new lightweight composite Helix prop becomes a necessary and excellent choice for this paramotor, because it is impossible to achieve the same performance with a large wooden propeller.

A further advantage is that the profile used for this carbon fiber propeller keeps performance high even as air density decreases, as it maintains thrust as the height increases. While the Static thrust is increased a bit, the real benefit is the climb rate especially at altitude. Most of this extra performance comes from the longer and wider propeller catching more air outside the disturbed airflow of the pilot.

For the 150cm version the RPM of the propeller is drastically reduced, only 2200 (17/75 Standard Gearbox) RPM at maximum throttle. The result is a smoother, quieter, more efficient flight, not to mention the benefits of a rigid airfoil style cage!



Available in Two Sizes!

The new Long Range ABM is available in 140cm and 150cm Cage widths, allowing different size pilots this new and different flying configuration.


The most popular version is the 150 Cage with a 140cm propeller, but the LR 140 has a new wider propeller made for the 17:75 gearbox.

The result is a quieter and more powerful machine than the skinny blade 130cm propeller found on the standard miniplane with the 19:73 gearbox.

The LR 140 can also be easily upgraded to the 150 size since the gearbox is already in place. The pilot will only need a 140cm propeller and Cage/Foot for the upgrade!

The complete frame 140 size weight is only 3000 grams! (arms not included).



Massive Long Range!

For pilots wanting the longest range possible, Miniplane now offers the LR with an 18 Liter tank for incredibly long flights - higher and further than ever before!

The efficiency of the Rigid 150 Cage with a 140cm wide paddle propeller and a 12L tank is already amazing, with flight times as long as more than four hours.

Now, with an 18 liter tank, the ability to go higher and further than ever before is a distinct possibility.

Imagine climbing on a calm and smooth day to view the world from 15 thousand feet and cruise to the distant horizon on your amazing flying machine!

While this configuration is available, the 12L tank is more than adequate for most pilots as it burns about 1-2 liters per hour (5+ hours).
