Brauniger IQ Motor Vario

!NEW LOWER PRICE! The new IQ Motor is the world’s first electronic flight instrument specially designed for flying powered paragliders, paramotors, powered hang gliders and ultralite trikes.

The integrated display of engine RPM and temperature (cylinder head temperature), and the innovative Altitude Guidance Mode (AGM = optical altitude guidance) make powered flying even safer and a lot more fun!

Displayed engine data can be programmed with individually adjustable alarm thresholds. If a value is exceeded the IQMotor display field starts to flash.

There are two versions, A without Barograph and flight recording, and B with integrated flight recorder (barograph) which not only records flight time and altitude but also engine temperature. Connect the IQ Motor B to a PC and analyse your flights with the PC-Graph 2000 software (free download at

The IQ Motor is also perfect for flying without an engine. Just switch over to "Free Flight Mode" and the IQ Motor becomes a fully-featured instrument for thermalling with two altimeters, averager vario, analogue and digital vario and barograph (Version B).
