Leg strap adjustment

Recommended Posts

That's a good question. Not something I have tested.

I am 'guessing' that the answer would be no or very minimal (assuming normal low hang point set up) as the weight on the leg straps would not translate to the swing arms.

Also, I think if you have one loose leg strap, you would normally only drop as low as the tight leg strap (unless there is something your not telling us Cas) ? normally something gets in the way.

That's nothing to do with your leg straps :-):-) 

Most low hang point paramotors are (offset) so that they fly in a straight line (under power) by counteracting the torque effect.


When you turn your engine off to land, the offset now has no torque effect to counter so it will start to fly in the opposite direction as your torque steer.
