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
