The R-Bus is the first Niviuk tandem paramotor wing designed for use with a trike and it can carry loads up to 500 kilograms. Also suitable for lighter rigs and foot-launched PPG tandems, the new R-Bus was conceptualized to become the ideal tool for both professional and recreational flights.
It is a highly robust, stable and durable wing. It also features excellent wing loading and energy retention for comfortable, safe takeoffs and landings for both pilot and passenger.
The reinforced internal structure, as well as the optimized line configuration, means the load is perfectly distributed and balanced and this makes this wing capable of carrying up to 500 kg. Due to their lightweight nature, the incorporation of Nitinol rods in the profile also reduces the inertia and means a stiffer, crease-free leading edge to reduce parasitic drag.
However, the first step to an excellent flight experience is a good takeoff. The design of the line distribution permits a uniform inflation and the wing rises quickly, accurately and without the tendency over-shoot. A perfectly controllable launch phase is made possible thanks to the A Assist System, which allows the pilot to fix the A-risers to the trike to keep their hands free to comfortably handle the brake controls. On the other hand, the increased lift generated by the aerofoil enables excellent wing loading, and as a result neither long distances, high speeds or high engine power are required during takeoff. Thanks to this, neither high speed nor high engine power are required during takeoff. The R-Bus allows both pilot and passenger to quickly and easily take flight, even in less favorable conditions.
The comfort factor is also reflected in the degree of manuevrability of the wing. Its dual steering system enables the pilot to steer and turn efficiently without requiring much effort: the wing has both the main brake and a high-speed tip steering which allows the pilot to turn without pulling the brake, avoiding profile deformation and, as a result, a decrease of speed and performance. Also, it is a very efficient tool to compensate for the natural equal and opposite effect caused by engine inertia or torque.
The R-Bus is also equipped with a high efficiency profile, offering excellent top and cruising speeds. With the new built-in Trim Adjustor, the pilot can accurately control both the direction and speed, regardless of wing-loading. (Video available below)
Another strength of the R-Bus is its high degree of stability (also with light loads). Efficient glide means reduced fuel consumption and it gives the wing excellent energy retention and easy roundout for soft landings. In the case of engine failure, the reduced sink rate is big bonus for safety (-2.5 m/s for a wing-loading of 420 kg).
Suitable for a wide range of paramotors and trikes, the R-Bus is available in two sizes: 37 m2 (ideal for light trikes, windy areas or foot-launched takeoffs with moderate wind) and 40 m2 (perfect for heavier trikes).
