Scorpio Reflex wing from Swing Powerplay

What swing say: 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.

Paramania Video Series : Maillon Check Tighten and Load Test





Paramania designers and manufacture of popular wings such as the Fusion and Revo2 where they use larger than average maillons that are 3.5mm thick stainless steel with a breaking strain of 1200kg. Here we have a couple of videos to demonstrate their fitting and strength.

Load dispersion “A paraglider consisting of 8 maillons, 4 each side. With an 80kg pilot equals to 10kg per maillon. At 8g’s force that is 80kg per maillon. At full fast trim using mainly a & b risers at 8g that is still only 160kg each.”

Watch this video demonstrating a load test and the breaking strain of a Paramania maillon.


This video demonstrating the correct method of checking and tightening your maillons.
