Paramotor Geometry, Part 5: Pitch stability under power

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments

Now it’s time to add some power! In the last video we had two pictures wrong, so come along with us and find it out after we’ve added some power! This video speaks about 4th decision that a paramotor designer needs to make and that is where to place the thrust line relative to the carabines. To prevent pitching forward or backward, paramotor designers needs to move their cages with whole motor and propeller. Find out which system and how needs to be moved. Little spoilers, the gooseneck bars won this time, so stay tune for more videos like this! … Continued

Paramotor Geometry Part 6: Speed bar behavior.

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments

Pushing the speed bar sometimes leads to surprising results. And the suspension system is crucial. This is part 6 in our classroom. Miroslav Svec, designer of SCOUT paramotors shares his knowledge about paramotor construction, the theory and reasoning behind. At the end of the roughly 30 videos in the series you will be able to make a qualified judgment what is the ultimate best paramotor for you. Pushing the speedbar has two direct and immediate effects: 1. your upper back applies pressure on the paramotor frame backwards 2. your center of gravity changes especially when pushing the speedbar forward not … Continued

Paramotor Geometry Part 7: Ground-handling and running with a paramotor.

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments

Your flight starts on the ground. Lift the glider and run. And yes, your suspension system affects your groundhandling more than you would think… This is part 7 in our classroom. Miroslav Svec, designer of SCOUT paramotors shares his knowledge about paramotor construction, the theory and reasoning behind. At the end of the roughly 30 videos in the series you will be able to make a qualified judgment what is the ultimate best paramotor for you. With high suspension systems your glider is a bit too high and so are the glider controls. The As, the Bs and the brakes … Continued

Paramotor Geometry Part 8: How paramotor suspension affects the comfort in flight?

| by | Paramotor Geometry | 0 comments

So let’s talk about comfort in flight this time! In this video you will learn that the suspension has a big impact on your comfort in flight. We decided that your comfort in the air can be measured in three ways: 1: Reach for the glider controls 2: Reach for the camera(reach for all the stuff you need during flight) 3: How nervous the glider feels in turbulence. So stay with us and you will learn, which suspension system is best for your style and for you!
