Trikes Vs. Quads? Why BlackHawk Only Offers Quads:
We have customers call frequently and ask what the difference is between Quads Vs. Trikes. After years of manufacturing gear, instructing students, hundreds of hours in research & design, and many prototype models, we KNOW for a fact that a Paramotor Quad is the safest, most stable, and easiest way to launch a powered paraglider. We have designed our LowBoy Quads with a low center of gravity and to feature a wide wheel base. This makes BlackHawk Quads second-to-none in performance and safety.
“A digression on Quads: I saw some extreme examples of the incredible stability offered by low CG quads. John’s (quad) was the most graphic, though. When another pilot was taxiing it, he got into some turbulence which started him swinging left/right. He lifted off and wound up hitting the pavement sideways, skidding to a stop. Had that been a trike or a anything with a higher CG, it would rolled immediately. In fact, there were two trikes that rolled and were damaged. But John’s and another similar unit, which endured highly tipful encounters, just skidded around. Both incidents that I saw would have tipped most trikes. Mind you, I like trikes and, for experienced pilots, they’re fine. Quads have drawbacks, too, of course, namely in rough terrain because the wheels hit bumps unevenly. But overall, the evidence is overwhelming that you’re less likely to flip a low CG quad than a trike. And of course it makes sense given their broader overall base. Trikes can be improved, of course, by having a low CG and wide rear wheel base, but, all things being otherwise equal, quads are the best tool for beginners learning wheels.”
