About

A LOT of money raised and many friends and contacts made. But just short of our set goal. As you probably know, Kickstarter is "all or nothing" so we're set for a re-launch. 

We have gained many new insights and learned invaluable lessons for improving our campaign throughout this process. There’s nothing like having a community of supportive backers getting involved to really fine tune our project!

With all that great feedback in hand and newly committed terms from our suppliers, we will be re-launching Revolt early

Flying has never been easier, safer or more accessible.

For most of human history, the dream of flight was just that - a dream. Only a century after the Wright Brothers took to the skies, our advanced prototype Revolt I, is proof a personal aircraft can be economical, convenient, efficient and eco-friendly at the same time.

There is nothing that compares with the freedom of flying Revolt. Now you have the chance to be part of an incredible project that is already making history!

The sky is not the limit, it's just the beginning.

Current airplanes need complex logistics and huge runways for take-off and landing. The Revolt requires only a few dozen meters and can be carried by car. Convention aviation relies on polluting fossil fuels, but Revolt’s batteries can be recharged with renewable energy, making Revolt the most environmentally responsible form of flight.

Revolt is classified as paramotor, which means it is not subject to many of the rules imposed by civil aviation authorities. With Revolt, we have transformed the ordinary concept of a paramotor, improving quality and safety, which will immediately appeal to anyone who wants to learn to fly in a conventional paramotor course. 

Revolt is "fuelled" by batteries, which we consider a consumable just like gasoline. Rather than sell batteries, we help pilots buy them at the lowest price directly from the manufacturer. This is why the Revolt kit does not include batteries, but has an innovative system that allows you to assemble the battery pack with the same simplicity you change a battery in a TV remote control.

When the battery life is exhausted you can replace them yourself. Because battery technology is constantly changing, our approach allows our customers to buy the latest batteries directly, AFTER we have tested them.

 *Even if in many datasheets the cycles are rated around 1000, this is a number that refer to a theorical life, charging and discharging the battery at 1C. We reduce that number at 20% due our experience in lifetime battery, we want to be realistic. Actually Revolt charge the batteries at 1C and discharge around 2C.

We are paragliding and paramotor pilots who love to fly and whose primary goal is to safely increase participation in this amazing sport. 

If you have skills and experience that can help please let us know. We need lots of help with such things as testing and design calculations, and we would love to welcome you to this innovative family. 

We’re establishing a team that includes:

  • aeronautical engineers for development
  • electrical engineers to study the best components and reduce the charging time
  • mechanical engineers to reduce weight and increase safety
  • sound engineers to reduce / eliminate the noise
  • designers to make a design as beautiful to look at as it is to fly
  • programmers

Even if can’t contribute money or expertise, you CAN talk about Revolt with your friends and share on social media. This will help our project to be known throughout the world and to reach people ready to invest in what they believe. Every bit helps!

 IN COLLABORATION WITH:

Risks and challenges

Our dreams are sky high, and although we have been able to finance our advanced prototype, we need to take the design and manufacturing to the next level. That means finance.

By supporting the Revolt on Kickstarter, the first production run can become a reality. Your support will help develop of one of the most innovative flying machines in history, turning a tested prototype into a broadly available product. YOU can help bring a safe, powerful and incredibly FUN aircraft to pilots around the world!
