The new Air Creation single-seater wing: PLAYFUL, COMFORTABLE, LIGHTWEIGHT, and STRONG.
So to be clear: the iFun Pixel is not a powered hang glider, although its light weight (90 kg or 200 lbs) may suggest as much. This is truly an “Air Creation” in the spirit of the venerable Fun Racer that so many pilots appreciated. The iFun Pixel is built for cruising, has room for a huge payload of luggage and offers the same comfort and safety as its sister twin-seaters in our product line. It can be assembled by one person in less than 15 minutes.
Developed specifically for the new trike Pixel, the iFun 13 is a modern wing, designed to provide maximum cruising pleasure while maintaining simplicity of assembly, operation and maintenance. Its speed range of 41 to 110 km/h (26 to 68 mph) allows you to travel and land on a dime. But you have to fly it to admire its playfulness, its stability and its resistance in turbulent conditions. The manufacturer’s 30 years of experience have borne fruit…
With its Polini Thor 250 engine, the Pixel delivers amazing thrust that climbs at 4 m/s (787 ft/min) for economical fuel consumption cruise less than 5 l/h (1.3 gal/h). You can plan up to 3 hours of flight and a range of 200 km (125 miles).
Low vibration thanks to the balance of moving masses, easy startup with the “Flash starter” or optional electric starter, mechanical gear box, clutch, reliable cooling in all conditions, are among the other advantages of this engine developed by a company that loves a job well done.
The Pixel trike is available in two versions: the “bare-bones” model, economical, which can be incrementally fitted (or not) with travel equipment, and the “XC” (Cross Country) model that includes all of these amenities: control panel & windshield, electric starter, hand throttle, canvas siding and trunk. No worries, even in its “bare-bones” version, the Pixel makes no compromises on comfort and safety: three-point seatbelts, front fork adjustable to 4 positions to suit smaller & larger pilots, brake, adjustable bucket seats, headrest, front fender, wheel ball bearings, storage compartment accessible in flight, upper beam and front tube lined by cable, tested to +6 /-3g, 3g simulation of vertical impact, 15g forward for the engine mount and the fuel tank (at the maximum weight of 250 kg or 550 lbs).
Just like the big boys!
And to finish it all, the Pixel may be equipped with a manual triggered parachute weighing only 4 kg (9 lbs) that does not reduce the volume of the trunk and is also easy to carry and maintain.
