Hi all any info would be gratefully recieved I have been flying my trike which is a weight shift type ( i will try and insert a photo ) with a pap ros 125 engine for a while now and because of a wing change I decided to get a bigger motor so I now have a simonini mini2 EVo in a PXP weight shift frame sopposedly built for a evo2 engine its blisteringly quick on the ground during testing However on takeoff I was not very happy it veered dramaticaly to the right ( trims neutral apco lift ) I had to weight shift as much as I could possibly do i.e. hanging out to the left and also pull some left brake not what I wanted to do as I was waiting for it to spin ......I managed a very nervous circuit and landed people seem to be giving me different advice and I am aware of only one thing my head is about to explode i thought I knew sorting about torque but Now I am just confused so if its viewed from the harness side of the paramotor i.e. looking into the seat the engine is a belt drive and its turning to right i.e. clockwise the frame has a longer offset to the left which is supposed to stop the torque ............whats going on is the offset on the wrong side or have i got another problem once the power is off the drama stops and all is as it should be one thing is certain until I get to the bottom of the problem I won't be flying it again ..as I reckon I was very close to a visit to a hospital
