Product Description:

OSTER185 Plus Strenght and lightness the Moster impresses, for it’s not too heavy weight, it’s strong thrust equal to those engines with more cc's. If you are a heavy pilot and you don’t want to carry too much weight then this is your engine. Perfect for lighter pilot’s addicted to dynamic flight. It’s the election of our pilot Ramon Morillas as for his height record flights and for the acrobatic exhibitions. It is the winner of the Icarobatix 2012 flown by the young Thomas Mignaux.

New frame TINOX

Always paying attention to the market we have been working since the beginning of last year in an evolution of our frame looking for less weight , comfort but without losing the robustness, and of course the safety that we have always sought.

The result is the TINOX, a frame that is composed mainly of 2 materials: Titanium for the hoops and stainless steel for the main body.

This frame is done in parts so that without any problem you can change any of the parts in case it is needed. The disassembly is very easy and the four parts are easily stored in the case that comes standard with each paramotor.

It exists in a single size of 140cm where you can put both 125cm and 130cm propeller.

The feeling of lightness is great in a frame that has been designed for take-off on foot, although it can be used without problem on a trike like the Rolling or mini Rolling.

 

The Tinox frame comes standard in a 1400 mm style as standard.

David Mcnulty (ME) - May 13th 2013
Observations about engine noise jives with the local flyers here. Level flight was on par with the FB Simo. Full power probably produced more noise, but it also produced more power! We had no way of really testing it, and morning inversions probably reflected a lot of noise low down. From the seat, the motor sounded quieter than my FB Solo, and on the Solo, the combustion chamber is far from my head (near the bottom of the cage). This leads me to believe that a lot of the noise comes from the tuned pipe resonating, which is close to my head on the Solo and far from my head on the Moster.

Weight shift was comfortable and felt natural-- It wasn't as much as you'd get on a free-flight harness, but for the first time on a paramotor I could actually lean my head out past my risers. The anti-torque, diagonal plastic buckle strap was incredibly effective at preventing weight shift. This was desirable for launch, and I couldn't get more than maybe 4 inches of weight shift until I unbuckled it. With it unbuckled, I was carving reasonably steep turns with weight-shift alone. In any configuration, I could more than compensate for the motor torque. I have flow prior year PAPs, the FB Sportix, and a few different paragliding harnesses. The vibration felt was not as smooth the Thorix motors I've flown (or the Simo on an FB Sportix cage), but it was smoother than the other motors I've flown (PAP Ros? 120, FB Solo, Simo on Comfort Bar cage). The vibration was only felt around idle, and it really wasn't an issue for me. At power, the pipe tuned in and the vibration went away. The harness is more comfortable than the harnesses of perhaps all those aforementioned motors but the FB Sportix, which was downright cushy. Just hang-test it well to be sure the last 3 inches under your thigh flips 'up' toward your thigh when you sit down, rather than down (which still leaves plenty of seat; I have long legs).
Having a low hangpoint allowed me to touch the brake lines and tip-steering lines of my Chronos with ease. With a number of wing designs I flew at Beach Blast 2012, including the Chronos and the GTR, steering with the trims all the way out is accomplished by grabbing and pulling on *lines* rather than tip toggle handles (GTR actually had a bungee line that you pulled on). Reaching those lines was difficult in high-hookin motors I've flown, but simple and even natural feeling with a low-hookin such as the PAP.

some paint is chipping off from the joints between the segments of the exhaust. I'll keep checking it, but I'm not alarmed-- my prior motor lost that paint rather quickly too, and its exhaust system is still strong. Another negative is that the throttle kill-switch is pointy and sticks up about 3/8 of an inch, and it was hard to slip my winter-glove-covered thumb over it to kill it one-handed. A friend with a similar throttle has experienced this same thing. Perhaps with preparation (loosening of the hand strap) one-handed kills would be doable with gloves.

Overall, I really like the PAP Moster 185. It felt natural on its first flight, and I was mostly flying high-hookins before (~370 prior flights).
