When and why do I need to change the carburetor repair kit?
Maintain your SkyMax Paramotor on time.
The pilot buys aircraft equipment. Aviation is always an increased risk, so care should be on a completely different level than, for example, after a car. One of the regular elements of maintenance is the replacement of the carburetor repair kit, we will highlight a few details of this.

1. According to the instructions, the repair kit is changed every year.

According to the manual, you need to change the carburetor repair kit every year. We at SkyMax Paramotors recommend doing this AT LEAST once every year and a half, without fail.

For example, you bought a paramotor in the fall. Then flew off in the fall, then in the spring we leaned the mixture (by turning the “L” screw) and continued to fly. It turns out it will need to be changed in the next spring.

2. What will happen if you do not change the repair kit?

As the engine is used, the carburetor will become more and more difficult to tune. But this process happens imperceptibly, from flight to flight the situation will worsen a little bit.

The engine will begin to shake unnoticed by the pilot at idle, the membranes are deformed due to the impact of the fuel and begin to work differently. Over time, more and more fuel will be required for the same flight time. The fuel mixture will become unbalanced, and you will not notice that the quality of mixture formation has deteriorated.

All these factors increase the risks in flight, so change carburetor repair kits on time.

What will happen if you add an atom + 90kg pilot + viper 4 16?
Right, you can fly very well, because the atom has enough thrust even for such a heavy pilot and such a small wing.
