Miniplane-USA is pleased to present a new Paramotor!

We have now added the Moster Plus 185cc Manual Start to the line of engines available on the Classic Miniplane frame.

The light and perfectly balanced Miniplane Classic Frame has proven itself over the years as a favorite for many pilots. Adding the Vittorazi Moster Plus engine is a natural evolution towards serving the needs of the community.

The Vittorazi Moster family of engines has become one of the most popular and trusted motors in the paramotor industry for heavier pilots needing a significant amout of power for their flying pursuits.

The Moster Plus 185 incorporates a clutch, and this is why we have chosen this engine for our lineup. We fell that the addition of the clutch is a significant step towards safety and versatility in paramotor engine design.

The Dark Evolution – Moster Plus 185

Moster 185 Plus. The smallest and most powerful engine in its category.

Vittorazi is happy to present its new Moster 185 line engine series, the 2016 Dark Evolution, commemorating its 20th year of activity and accomplishment in the field of paramotor production.

The new line includes the ClassicSilent and Plus versions and it presents, in addition to aesthetic improvements, several innovations that enhance further the Moster 185 technical characteristics.

Its total black dress is what catches your attention at first: the black castings, transmission, head and exhaust pipe convey elegance and determination, and these black elements are the background to details in bright orange, the Vittorazi’s brand representative color.

Reliability comes first – Testing the Moster 185 Plus engine. Vittorazi Motors’ attitude is to always test its products beyond their regular limits. Each couple of months, a standard engine is picked up from our regular production and it is tested beyond its standard limits for 5 hours between 6000 and 8700 RPM without being stopped at all. See the results!

The real innovation is the technological evolution used in this new series production for the Plus version:

  • New Clutch – machined from solid material, obtained through CNC machining of highly resistant alloy steel; very precise in geometry and weight.
  • Evolution of the 3S Starter – Soft Starter System: all the starter components are made through injection molding. The new geometrical shape optimizes the lightness and strength of the structure.
  • New Carbon Fiber Silencer – using this material has allowed the reduction of the engine weight by 70 grams. Also, it has conveyed an aggressive look and a definitely racing sound to the engine.
  • New Painting of Castings – (carter and engine support): a paint specifically tested for engines that is resistant to high temperatures has been used, offering greater protection and safety against the oxides caused by atmospheric agents.
  • New Cooling Conveyor – made of carbon fiber and a cylinder head, specifically redesigned to facilitate its installation on the engine.

With the latest addition to the Moster range, Vittorazi introduces a further innovation and offers the best value for weight, power, thrust, comfort, quietness and reliability available on the market.

The main added value of this new version is the clutch.

This integrated device significantly reduces vibrations at idle speed and it increases safety during pre-flight routine (propeller at rest). The vibrations are almost imperceptible at all engine speeds, while the weight distribution and the size of the engine minimize the torque effect.

The other notable improvement has been achieved with the introduction of the new exhaust system, extremely quiet and performing at the same time. The entire engine has been designed to obtain the minimum noise emission, which is attenuated by the air box, the transmission belt, a special “Db-killer” silencer, and the choice of the best propellers.

The “soft starter system” (3S) is one of the new advantages. It is a manual start system that allows the engine to start, both in flight and on the ground, with a single pull through the use of only one hand.

The Moster 185 Plus structure is basic and simple and it has a compact design (ideal and easy for control operations and maintenance). The total weight of the engine is 14.2 kg in the manual start version. The “plug & play” installation of the engine is quick and easy. The cooling of the thermal group is secured by propellers with dedicated profiles and exclusively designed for the Moster. The compatibility of specific propellers is recommended for the Plus version.

Vittorazi has also developed, for use in hot climates or other specific uses of the engine such as tandem or competition, a special cylinder head covering designed for this engine. This allows to the cylinder head to significantly increase the cooling, reducing the operating temperature.

The engine develops a maximum power of 25HP at 7,800 RPM. Vittorazi agrees to communicate the values of power, weight and static thrust in accordance with the actual values measured.

The Vittorazi Moster 185 Plus Paramotor is recommended for a total weight of pilot + paramotor or trike ranging from 100 to 160 kg. The thrust is smooth and linear up to 75 kg with a 130 cm propeller (70 kg with a 122cm propeller).

The fuel consumption of this engine is significantly reduced, about 4.0 liters/hour during a cruise flight.

Thanks to the specific Walbro/Vittorazi diaphragm carburetor, the engine is not affected by rough handling or bouncing during takeoff, turbulence in flight or even spiral dives, and it maintains a constant idle speed.
