1000+ km trip on SCOUT

1000+ km trip on SCOUT I have strapped a sleeping bag to the SCOUT and packed a bottle of oil. Together with my pal Roman we took off for a full bivouac PPG trip around Slovakia. We landed at petrol stations for refueling or to find some shelter for the night. What an amazing adventure. More than 1000 kilometers to see castles and fortresses, high mountains or lakes, cities and rural vilages, sunshine or fog and rain. This trip was made to promote PPG and it was a great success.

  “Overall this machine meets more safety goals than any other machine I’ve tested.”   “The fact that it looks cool doesn’t hurt.”   “Overall: Very nice. Experienced pilots will really appreciate the balance of comfort, power, weight, size and handling. For beginners who insist on starting with low hookins, this is a good choice given the well-managed torque compensation. It’s great to see this level of innovation.”     Read the full review here: http://www.footflyer.com/Equipment/Paramotors/2013/Scout185/Scout_Paramotor_185Moster.htm

Demonstration of Dynamic Torque Compensation

Before you watch this video Be sure to read this post Paramotor Torque Effect Explained. Please be sure you clearly understand the difference between Acceleration Torque and Continuous Torque. Both have the same effect (a tendency to turn to one side), but happen in different situations and have different cause. On the video you will see behavior of the SCOUT paramotor and the Dynamic Torque Compensation in action. The SCOUT flies differently from other paramotors. Paramotor with static torque compensation (carabiner offset or diagonal strap) flies straight at level flight if correctly designed. There should be no tendency to turn. If, however, the … Continued

Paramotor Torque Effect Explained

  Paramotor Torque Effect Explained The torque effect derives from Newton’s third law: for every action, there is equal opposite reaction.     If the engine acts with force on the propeller, the propeller will react with equivalent force. If the prop rotates to the left (5), the torque effect will rotate the paramotor to the right (6). The whole paramotor will yaw to the right, mostly with the pilot as well. One side of the paralgider is more loaded and pulled down (9). The paraglider will have the tendency to turn and is not capable of straight flight without … Continued
