New Paratoys Riser Design

Paratoys Riser DesignThis is a riser from the new Paratoys II Wings. It features double hook in points for torque reduction. Basically you hook into the middle loop on the side opposite that your engine’s torque turns you. I suppose if you wanted extra redundancy you could hook into the middle on both risers as well – This is a feature I happen to like and if I’m using a motor wing for free flying (no torque), I never hook into the bottom loupe. I’ve always like the Paratoys (now Velocity) riser designs for their seemingly over-built construction. Whether it’s just passive reassurance or the riser will actually be the last thing to fail, I just like having a beefy riser there.

(As always, refer to the manufacturer’s recommendations!)
