Gallery shows the Rocco 230 EVO ST standalone in foot launch configuration and applied to a Kilo trike.
The Rocco 230 EVO ST (Super Thrust), is without a doubt the most powerful foot launch paramotor in the world. Almost the only one today to have developed a frame for the recently released Simonini Mini2 EVO, boosting 33hp!
We want to be clear on this: its tremendous thrust makes it not ideal to everybody, only to selected pilots. Even for tandem flying, foot launch, consider that this paramotor is slightly heavier than the Rocco SUPER. Of course, tandem take offs will be done with shorter runs, which is already something. But again, we prefer to promote this paramotor either for selected applications (high Altitude, record breaking flights), or for pilots with good experience and clear ideas in mind.
Of course, we recommend with no restriction this paramotor applied to a Kilo one seater trike or even Kilo DUO tandem trike. In fact, this is the ideal solution for a lightweight trike. And probably the only good solution for those countries with the 75kg empty weight limitation for tandem trikes (without need of certification).
Good figures about the EVO engine, are its good power with low fuel consumption: we have registered 3,5 liters per hour at 5500rpm, with a really good thrust, more than level flight in one seater and level flight in tandem (depends on wing etc).
The frame of the paramotor is similar of the one of the Rocco Super, but with reinforced outer cage tube (14mm instead of 12mm diameter).
