2011 sees the introduction of the all new lightweight V5 4 stroke paramotor. The V5 is an all new engine design, with a capacity of 195cc (producing 20.5HP). This engine has evolved through the manufacture of the V3 and V4 engines. Bailey has already won a vast array of world championships with these engines and is looking to set to achieve even higher accolades with the V5. The testing of V5 in January by the Spanish PPG Team has had them in disbelief with the power and lack of weight of the new engine.
The easy start system is the icing on the cake making starting hot or cold too simple. Featuring the Bailey Easy Start technology, means effortless and reliable starting (and in flight re-starting) using a high quality re-coil manual starter.
The Discovery 2 with the Bailey V5 is light (only 28Kg), powerful and fuel efficient and is set to be our best selling paramotor. The D2 with an approximate weight of 28kg’s makes it lower in weight than some 2 strokes, but the difference will be in the fuel economy. Some test results have the fuel usage lower than 2.5 litres per hour which means pilots will only need half as much fuel on board for the same amount of flight time. Our units will be supplied with a 130cm GSC prop but we also offer a 2 and 3 blade carbon options as well.
Baileys 'World First' 4 stroke paramotors have proved devastatingly effective over the last 7 years in competitions, with many UK, French, Spanish, European 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, Easy Start Technology. The Bailey 4 Stroke engines are compact and weigh in at only 15.2Kg (V5).
