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 pilot … Continued
