custom-vince Posted May 17, 2019 Share Posted May 17, 2019 Lets start at the beginning. On my Air Conception I feel the torque is very well managed, any AC pilot I think would agree to that. I don't need to cross my legs to fly straight, the torque is well managed just like other Paramotors with similar style hang points, MacFly, Parajet Maverick, Miniplane etc, the latest off set S bars all work very well. I got curious about more anti-torque when I saw more people talking about scout, nirvana and the netting mounted lamels, still sceptical myself and not wanting things attached to my netting, I made my own design. Developed them with some testing and some prototypes later, I was happy and impressed. Fear of being bias to myself I got my results confirmed by another pilot. He was blown away. So then I made a bunch more and sent some out for reviews. Photo insert is more flight testing in Malaysia. What it highlighted to me was how much torque is still present even on well designed well managed setups. I would say it is a non issue that does not need solving, not compared to Paramotors of old. but... once we got it right, the neutral feeling in flight is even better and with no drawbacks, why wouldn't I keep them fitted. I use them all the time now. It is like the icing on the cake. Comments have been good "I have never flown a paramotor like it, zero torque". Thats not everyones experience, reduced and improved for sure, there is a compromise and it depends on your power vs weight, prop size etc. They work and have real effect. The results are bigger than the sum of the parts, that is what seems so amazing. So why I am posting now? Woody has a nice unbiased test. He is flying a Tornado with an ACRO wing which is a harder test. He seems happy and also keeping them fitted which says all I needed to know. Woodys Video below. Some other test videos coming from other pilots I am told. A few pilots known to me have tested and now also flying with the VectorBlades. 1 1 Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
