Scout unique innovations

 

Our way of doing things, of challenging everything that seems to be given lead us through the process of developing and building one of the most innovative and beautiful engineered paramotors out there.

We have introduced some new features never seen before,  simple and efficient ones.

 

Because simplicity is the ultimate form of sophistication”.

Leonardo Da Vinci

Dynamic Torque Compensation

Our main innovation is unique torque compensation. It is the obvious difference between the SCOUT and other paramotors. Something you see at first sight and you feel on the first flight.  This is a game-changing innovation.

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 a different cause.

Why not Carbon Fiber?

 

Steel or aluminum frame?  Carbon Fiber please!

 

For many decades paramotor frames were build from steel or aluminum round tubes.

Because this is what we do, innovate, we asked ourselves why? Why not Carbon Fiber?

Light, strong, and malleable enough to shape it in aerodynamical structures, was the obvious choice.

Startup assistant: Safe Start

The Safe Start system is a  small computer that monitors the revolutions of the engine. In case of the RPM increasing suddenly right after starting the engine, this device will instantly shut the engine off.

All we want is to keep you safe, so SafeStart comes standard with every SCOUT paramotor.

Billet CNC high-grade aluminum gooseneck bars with smart attachment.

 

No more bended bars from high G maneuvers.

No more broken gooseneck attachment bolts.

We have solved these problems using smart engineering and high-quality materials.

Hybrid bars

 

For those who want more weight shift authority and active piloting control we have designed the Hybrid Bars.

 

Unique attachments points allow left to right movement of the risers as low as possible, giving to the pilot plenty authority while front to back movement is restricted by the triangle design of the main strap, holding the carabineers in the trust line all the time.

Pilots with free-flying background will love them.

Reclined and comfortable in flight position

 

Geometry is the key behind the amazing feel of the paramotor.
All those little details that are so important for the feel in flight.
Propeller perfectly vertical and close to your body,
for maximum thrust and minimal gyroscopic effect

Do you want even more comfort?

Yes, that is possible!

 

We have completely redesigned the main frame of the Scout NXT.

The new variable frame geometry keeps your back perfectly parallel on the ground allowing you to straighten up and having a great view into your glider.  Once airborne the frame geometry changes to give you a nice reclined angle for your comfort. Magic!

Carbon back plate for extra layer of protection

 

The ergonomically shaped carbon protection shield distributes the impact on a larger surface and prevents damaged frame tubes injuring your spine.

Just in case…

Spherical spar/cage joints

 

We designed the ball joint connection between our aerodynamic spars and hoop for an easy assembly and disassembly, yet being strong enough to withstand multidirectional forces.

 

Simple and efficient, because Scout engineering, that’s why.

BEST safety features on paramotor you can get! SCOUT Paramotors

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

Ultimate handling machine SCOUT Paramotors

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!

The most comfortable paramotor SCOUT paramotors

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 info@scoutparamotor.com or ask for a demo flight at http://www.scoutparamotor.com/scout-prices/dealers-2/

Freefly feeling of Hybrid bars on SCOUT Paramotors

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.

Dynamic torque compensation of SCOUT Paramotors

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.

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

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

Demonstration of Dynamic Torque Compensation

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

  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
