Is the Scout Paramotor a remote control, or actual paraplane?

We speak here about FLEX 1.7 V3 RC powered paraglider from FlyPG. I was inspired by seeing Scout Paramotor 1:1.

Hi folks, I need some help. I finished building and tried a flight but no luck. The canopy won't 'kite'. I figure if the thing is going to fly then you should be able to bring the canopy up in to wind and it should stay there inflated, like a foil kite. Mine won't inflate, it just collapses in a heap of ripstop nylon! I notice on the 'how to launch' video the canopy comes up smartly and has good shape. I thought I might try inflating the canopy with the brake lines slackened right off. If it still won't inflate then I could try adjusting angle of attack by adjusting the straps. Probably I'm doing something wrong; any ideas? Andy

Back to initial setup

After my tests, I come back to initial setup. A little difference between brakes, to compensate torque. Look at 3 flights (one video) in this configuration:
