The Details about the 2021 Tornado 280

The Tornado 280 delivers 175lbs of thrust with 33hp, on a 150cm V2 titanium race frame.

This paramotor was an excellent first motor in high altitude launches because of the light weight and powerful engine. The launches were short with this beauty.

I have completed every maintenance required per the manual and hours required. Eric Dufour from Paratour put in a new bottom end crank at 120 hours. The paramotor is in excellent shape. Additionally, I just replaced the entire top end with brand new parts Head, Cylinder, Piston. I completed the break in procedure for the new parts. The carburetor was rebuilt at the same time I replaced the top end. Only Ethanol free gas was used. This machine is ready to GO!
