SCOUT is perfectly tandem capable.

The SCOUT has plenty of power for tandem flights. The Moster is a powerful engine, yet lightweight enough to make tandem launches easy. The 132 cm prop is very efficient to transform the power of Moster into thrust.

Infinity on SCOUT!

| by | SCOUT in action | 0 comments

SCOUT pilot Javi Malaguita took his paramotor for the first flight and he started with the most difficult and most dangerous acro maneuver – the infinity. The SCOUT frame and harness has passed the 1900 kg load test in Czech republic recently. The infinity was not a test of SCOUT’s build quality. We knew it will last.    Here are Javi’s first words after flight: “The first flight and the first infinity with the SCOUT was the most incredible sensation of my life. The best flight. I don’t want to stop doing this ever, this is what I most like … Continued

  One of the best acro pilots in Spain and probably in the world Javi Malaguita became a SCOUT pilot. So expect new exciting video footage and advendtures. Here are just a few videos showing the genius and braveness of this guy, yet with the new SCOUT with some special “Malaguita” features, expect more to come! Javi´s First Words The first thing I have to say about the Scout is that it is gorgeous!!! Apart from being incredibly sexy it´s also efficient and effective. You can basically forget about all the problems you have with other paramotors, like the torque effect … Continued

SCOUT propeller load test

| by | News | 0 comments

The locking mechanism on the SCOUT prop has been tested. This part is loaded with high forces due to high revolutions of the propeller. It sustained the loading of 5000kg (yes, 5 tons or 11,000 lbs)! This is well above the forces that happen on a paramotor. We are confident that the prop is very safe to use on paramotors. The picture above shows how the prop was attached to hydraulic machine in the lab. This test is necessary to obtain certification for use with paramotors in Czech Republic, which has one of the most strict rules in Europe. Czech certificates … Continued

Review of the new EOS100 light-weight paramotor engine.

| by | News | 0 comments

The new engine The EOS 100 is a brand new engine made by new start-up from Austria. Check their website for more info here: http://www.eos-engine.com/. The tech specs sound very promising: as powerful as the Polini 100 while lighter than the top80, with clutch and forced cooling. I have visited their factory in south Austria soon after they launched this engine on market. I have met Roland, the chief designer of the EOS engine and he was very nice and helpful. He obviously knows his stuff but he kept things straight: “Take the engine and test it.” So I did. Tech data … Continued

Different paramotor hook-in (hangpoints) systems compared and explained.

| by | Scout Innovations | 0 comments

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

1000+ km trip on SCOUT

| by | Paramotor Adventures | 0 comments

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. See photogallery in major newspapers in Slovakia: http://www.sme.sk/c/6928849/letecke-zabery-z-cesty-okolo-slovenska.html[/themecolor]   Will … Continued

Read Jeff Goin’s review of the SCOUT

| by | News | 0 comments

  “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

| by | Scout Innovations | 0 comments

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
