Razeebuss have announced an updated version of their auxiliary power unit for paragliders: they say the second-generation Radicall is 25% more powerful, thanks to its reduced drag.
The chassis has been redesigned, and part of the lower frame has been removed altogether which saves on both weight and drag. The total weight of the harness and power unit (including reserve) is 27kg, 10kg of which is the LiPo battery.
The improved efficiency also means greater battery autonomy, and less noise. Other changes to the Radicall include the replacement of the original thrust angle control system with a new electric version, controllable by the pilot.
Razeebuss say it is very easy to launch a paraglider from a flat field using the Radicall power unit, even in light wind conditions and that it is very similar to a regular paramotor.
