New To 2009

2009 sees the introduction of two all new, third generation 4 stroke engines, known as the V3-180 and 4V-200. The V3-180 is an 18HP, 180cc, 2 valve engine that directly replaces our 4stroke175 and features a number of improvements; 1kg lighter, more compact in every dimension, more powerful, improved cooling, provision for electric start with manual back-up, increased oil capacity, improved oil filtration / scavenging and much more.

The 4V-200 engine is based on the V3-180, but has a capacity of 200cc (22HP) and features a unique 4 valve cylinder head, ideally suited to paramotor pilots that weigh over 110Kg or the perfect answer for self-builders of trikes, ultralights or powered hanggliders, looking for economical, reliable 4 stroke power.

Our 'World First' 4 stroke paramotors have proved devastatingly effective over the last 5 years in competitions, with many UK, French and World Championship podium positions. Bailey Aviation machines are the leading choice for competition pilots, long XC pilots and fun-flyers alike. The 4 stroke design provides a superbly linear power delivery, smooth from idle to the higher RPM limits, far removed from the peaky power delivery of some 2 stroke designs. Many pilots are enjoying the extra flying time our fuel-efficient 4 stroke design offers, with 4+ hours flights now possible from a 10 litre fuel load.

The Bailey 4 stroke is a single cylinder SOHC design and features CNC machined alloy crankcases, pressure compensating carburettor, stainless steel exhaust, Poly-V belt drive reduction, high power CDI ignition and electric starting system. The Bailey 4 Stroke engines are compact and weigh in at 18.3Kg (V3-180) or 19.5Kg (4V-200) with all ancillaries (but minus battery pack).

But Are The 4 Strokes Heavier?
Many people are apprehensive at the dry weight of our 4 stroke paramotor compared to a 2 stroke counterpart, without understanding the affective advantages of the design. There are currently many 30kg + paramotors available, most having a fuel consumption of 4-6 litres / hour. This means that when fuelling for a 2-hour flight on such a machine it would require the loading of 10 litres (7.20kg) of fuel, bringing the total take-off weight to 37.20kg. A similar flight on a Bailey 4 Stroke that uses 2 litres/hour would only need 4 litres (2.88kg) of fuel, resulting in a take off weight of only 36.38kg. When contemplating the weight of a Bailey 4 Stroke, the fuel load has to be taken into consideration, as the 4 Stroke is very economical.

    The New Bailey THOR

    The new Bailey Thor is the product of 11 years in the PPG manufacturing business, during which time our machines have won countless National Championships, two European Championships and in 2009 the FAI World Championship.

    Our machines are also the mount of choice for many hardcore cross country pilots completing many epic un-supported long distance trips. Due to the Polini pedigree many PPG manufacturers are now offering the Thor engine in their chassis. We have worked hard on the design of our new Bailey-Thor chassis to incorporate many convenient features not offered by our competitors.

    The Bailey Thor uses the fantastic new Polini 2 stroke engine, which we are mightily impressed with and will be our lightest and most inexpensive paramotor. The decision to re-introduce a 2 stroke machine was made based on the performance vs weight characteristics of the new engine

    The Polini engine is in our view the best 2 stroke paramotor specific engine ever made, is very nicely engineered, produced by a highly reputable company, is lightweight and has a 20.5HP power output @ 8900RPM.

    The engine features an aluminium cylinder with Gilnisil coating with a 12.5:1 compression ratio, Walbro Carburettor with moulded intake silencer (optional Dellorto carburettor), lightweight 3.43:1 reduction drive and a simple manual pull start re-coil system and centrifugal (oil bath) clutch assembly. The engine weighs 11.8Kg (minus exhaust), is incredibly compact and is fitted with a 2 blade 1.10mØ or 1.30mØ (composite) or 1.25mØ (wooden) Polini prop, giving approx. 64Kg of thrust (1.25m prop version). The complete Bailey Thor paramotor weighs only 27.3Kg (ready to run, minus fuel). We can offer an optional small 12V 4ah battery that is charged from the engine to run accessories (please enquire for details).

    The Bailey Thor is available only with our alloy chassis in 1.10mØ or 1.30mØ size (the 1.25mØ wooden prop version uses the 1.30mØ chasis/cage) with either standard fit mid or low hang bars or extra cost Active Chassis. We have no immediate plans to produce the Thor with our titanium chassis. All Bailey Thor paramotors are equipped with our standard quick release propeller system as standard.

    With the exception of the engine and propeller, the Thor uses the same quality components as our range of 4 stroke machines, lightweight double hoop safety cage, bespoke Sup'Air harness with carry pockets and attached speed bar pulleys, alloy 10 L fuel tank (15L tank optional on 1.25mØ/1.30mØ versions), choice of mid or low stainless steel hang bars, Sup'Air carabiners and World Championship winning build quality.

    The Bailey Thor has some unique design features as listed below


    All Bailey Thor paramotors are supplied with the following standard features:-
    • 1.10m composite or 1.30m composite or 1.25m Wooden 2 blade propeller
