The Starseed X airframe and design concept delivers an all new integrated sensation and feels and acts like an extension of your own body. The unique design concept gives you an all new level of direct control and a felt gear shift which propels you right into the air with an incredible efficiency and with no torque.

Based on extensive testing over the last four years and many prototypes later, we have landed the perfect balance between the thrust line, the arm attachment points and the raiser attachments. This provides the best possible mix of handling and weight shift capabilities without compromising stability. In short, the synergy of all these factors is fantastic and delivers what we consider the best flying experience to date.
There is a reason why backpacks are designed to be worn on your back and not between your legs :-) On Starseed X the fuel tank is raised to become the back panel, thus providing free flow of air around the pilot compared to traditional paramotor designs. This allows us to get more thrust out of every engine on the market - only with less noise and less fuel consumption. Even the smaller and lighter engines deliver remarkably better performance with the optimised aerodynamics found on Starseed X.
Talking about performance: The weight shift capabilities are way better than we could ever dream of, while still maintaining great stability. On Starseed X you'll find the best possible balance between weight distribution, aerodynamics, weight shift capabilities and safety.
Our anti-torque system is based on offsetting the arms in relation to the frame (not the raisers in relation to the arms). This way all forces are in line with the arms, creating a more rigid construction with no twisting that can result in the need for replacing the arms. The solution helps to compensate for and almost equalise the torque effect of the engine and propeller in a magnificent way. This system has proved to work even better than we could have had hoped for. The pilot can change sides according to which engine is fitted to the Starseed X.
Although the tank is placed on the back, we do not experience any torque steer with our sophisticated, yet very simplified, anti-torque system. Our system offers a stable flight yet retaining full weight shift capabilities.
