Scorpio

Advanced PPG pilots can look forward to new levels in stability, agility and speed. SWING's paramotor brand POWERPLAY has developed the SCORPIO, the new reflex wing, and tested it according to the most exacting of considerations. In charge of this was multiple German champion and record holder Peter Schulz, who followed every step of development extremely carefully and thus had considerable input into the development of the SCORPIO.

The Scorpio can be launched perfectly even in 0-wind or variable wind because it has little tendency to overshoot. The pilot must hold the canopy slightly at its vertex. Once in its element, the Scorpio can be flown easily and very dynamically. Fuel economy and its high speed range make the sporty Scorpio suitable for all advanced recreational pilots who enjoy flying cross-country, or those who are considering the idea of entering competitions to match themselves against other pilots.

The SCORPIO incorporates all of the latest technologies in paraglider development such as:

  • Leading edge reinforced using nylon wires, giving perfect aerodynamic performance;
  • 3D-shaping and hybrid lines
  • "ring reefing" system and stabiliser brakes for exceptional manoeuvrability,
  • positive/negative trimmer system and 2-phase speed system for wide speed range
  • High directional stability due to crossover line system and variable offset at the wing tipsl

The trimmer system allows the pilot to slow the Scorpio by approx. 3km/h for launch and landing and to increase cruise speed by approx. 7 km/h. Vmax. is 60+ km/h depending on the wing-loading.
