Byron Leisek: ,,This machine is 100% intuitive when it comes to first flights!,, We know that safety is the most important feature on your paramotor and we have some key characteristics of SCOUT! It starts with a small and unique computer SAFE START that can prevent against unwanted injuries, under the seat container for your reserve parachute, integrated inflatable vest in case of water landings, unique dynamic torque compensation which we think is as handling feature as safety feature too and many many more! See the video and all the safety features in it! Stay tuned for more videos!!! Feel … Continued
All the unique features of the ultimate handling machine in one video! Best paramotor pilots speaking about handling the scout and how it feels to fly with it!
Long cross country flight with SCOUT harness will no longer be a torture. Harness made of the top quality materials and using the high end technologies is making from the SCOUT harness the most comfortable harness in which you can enjoy hours and hours of flying without experiencing the body fatique. Feel free to have questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or ask for a demo flight at http://www.scoutparamotor.com/scout-prices/dealers-2/
Use your weight shift as in free flying harness on your paramotor and feel the glider above you. All this you can do with ultimate handling feature of SCOUT paramotors as is the hybrid bars.
The key technology that makes the SCOUT carbon paramotor outstanding is explained by SCOUT lead designer and team pilots. Watch how it works, why it works and most important: how it feels in the air.
In general, flight characteristics of a powered paraglider are very much defined by the glider used and only to a lower extent affected by the paramotor. One of the key features of paramotor that have effect of how the pilot can feel the glider behaviour and enjoy the flight is the hook-in system. Most common hook-in systems on today’s paramotors Basicly, there are 5 hook-in systems commonly used: high hook-in with fixed spreaders (miniplane, bulldog, many others) high hook-in with moving spreaders (Nirvana) low hook-in with fixed bars (walkerjet, flat top) low hook-in with moving bars (PAP) medium-height “goose-neck” bars (SCOUT, miniplane … Continued
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 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
