Paracell PPG Electric Paramotor and Trikes upto 1h40m flying time

Paracell Electric Paramotor Company have been quietly working away on their projects and have produced a good range of electric paramotor and electric trike options.

A neat unit that incorporates a belt reduction system to a fan cooled motor.

Claiming up to 64kg thrust and up to 70 mins flying on the ppg & up to 1 hour and 40 minutes flying time on the trike model with higher battery capacity.

PolyZion the Potential future battery technology for Electric PPG

Current battery technology lithium-ion, lead acid, and nickel metal hydride batteries may offer better performance than nicad, alkaline, lead acid, they are still not good for powering a paramotor – they’re heavy, expensive, and have known flammability issues.

The PolyZion research project are developing zinc-plastic batteries for use in hybrid and electric vehicles. They aim is to produce a rechargeable battery that is cheaper, lighter, safer, with more power, more green and fast charging.

Heres hoping they succeed soon and we can all be flying electric paramotors in the not to distant future.
