The Rotax 582 mod.99 UL engine with a power of 65 hp, an E 2.62 gearbox and a three-bladed Powerfin propeller. It provides a static thrust of 175 kg. This allows you to quickly take off and gain altitude, as well as to fly using half of the engine power at engine revolutions of 4000 and 4500 rpm, at a maximum flight weight of 380 kg., which provides a high fuel economy and minimal noise level.
You can operate the electric starter from the control stick or from the control panel. All instruments and tools for controlling engine performance, such as fuel pump, suction, emergency fuel valve, foot throttle, manual throttle, tachometer, engine temperature, fuses and switches are easily accessible during flight.
The propeller of Bumble Bee 6 is manufactured with the traditionalist in its field – Powerfin (USA). It is specially made for this engine and gearbox and features three carbon blades, an aluminum head and an adjustable (manual) step. You can easily adjust it according to what altitude and weather conditions you fly.
The undercarriage is equipped with 4 wheels for stability during take-off and landing. The number of wheels and their characteristics allow it to take off and land at higher speeds compared to three-wheeled versions of trikes. Increased crosswind stability.
The tires are wider than standard, which provides even more stability on the ground and increases your choice of take-off and landing locations.
The braking system of Bumble Bee 6 controls the rear two wheels at the same time, by means of disc brakes. The brake is activated with the left foot. Unlike other paratrikes with a front wheel brake, here you can safely use full braking power without worrying about losing control when landing.
Hanging the wing to a trike allows you to use both belted and metal slatted wings, and in either case you can reach and control the individual lines and stabilizers if needed.
The trim system is easy to access and control. It allows you to set a specific flight direction or turning radius without having to use the main controls for the purpose. This will leave your hands free (plus the fact that you also have foot throttle) to take pictures with your camera or just relax and enjoy the flight.
The pilot feels comfortable in his seat and has enough space to move freely. Both the passenger and the pilot are protected, with the overhead guard protecting the passenger even in a side rollover.
The safety belts on both seats are from the leaders in their field “Schroth” and ensure safety and comfort. They can be easily adjusted even in flight. The rear seat is higher than the front, which provides better visibility. For the pilot’s additional comfort, the backrest can be adjusted from 75 to 90 degrees at the angle relative to the seat.
The rescue system of Bumble Bee 6 is from the latest generation Galaxy Sky. It has two handles to activate the rocket – bringing out the container with the spare parachute. One is on the bottom left next to the front seat and the other is on the bottom left next to the back seat. This allows for easy access and activation from both locations. The system is protected by 3 safety pins against unwanted activation, which the pilot removes before flight.
The control panel is equipped with:
Clock monitoring the working time of the engine.
Engine temperature gauge.
Gasoline level sensor in the tank.
A voltmeter that, through an electronic display, provides information about the voltage in the electrical system. Through this display you can monitor the consumption of electrical energy.
Separate circuit breakers for both motor circuits. This allows, before a flight, to check each of them individually.
Engine start button.
Engine shutdown button.
In flight, the pilot has easy access to the instruments. They are positioned so that you can see them clearly and distinguish all their designations!
The radio station is located on the left, above the control panel. It is placed in a special, hand-made, purpose-built aluminum stand, which allows easy and secure attachment of the communication device. The radio station is connected to the intercom.
The navigation system is located on the right above the dashboard. Also, like the radio station, it is placed in a special holder that allows secure and easy attachment of the navigation device. The location and angle at which the system is placed provides easy – monitoring, access and control.
