Exomo Copilot electric paramotor

Monday 4 October, 2021

The Copilot is Exomo’s latest electric paramotor. It offers an hour’s flight time, and has a clever Autopilot mode which detects when you are climbing and reduces the power to save battery. 

Electric paramotors are quick and easy to set up. Exomo say you can be ready to fly in ten minutes with the Copilot. They are much quieter than their petrol counterparts, so you don’t need noise-cancelling headphones, and they suffer less from vibrations. In addition, fewer moving parts means there is less to go wrong, so they don’t need much maintenance.

The Copilot’s 15kW engine provides 60-70kg thrust with a 130cm prop, a combination that is suitable for pilots weighing up to 85kg. Pilots up to 70kg can use a two-blade prop which will give around 50kg thrust.

The 55V Li-ion battery has a 4 kWh / 70Ah capacity and can be charged from a standard wall socket in around 3.5 hours. The Exomo with this battery weighs around 35kg. Smaller batteries are available, which reduce the weight, but also the flight time.

Exomo paramotors are built in France by an Airbus subsidiary company, and Exomo say each unit is individually bench-tested before being shipped.
