    Picking Motor for hot weather

    It has to be the 250 really, a lot more economical and the extra power at your weight will help

    New Niviuk Wings now released

    Hi Dan, the new wings are completely different, they both have Ram air which unlike some other brands really help with the initial inflation, I too had a link 1 for a training wing and found it needed to open trimmers slightly for nil wind but the new wings are a lot better, if your based in Spain I'm working out at flyspain next week and I'm thinking of taking my demo wing with me if you want to try it, what weight are you Cheers Danny

    Wing and motor size

    It depends what manufacturer you choose, Basing on your AUW @ 125kg then the 25 would be ideal Thanks Danny

    New Niviuk Wings now released

    Hi , Yes the link 2 is still comparable to the R3, And for my students this is what I would recommend, However If you have flown for a few hrs and are looking for a wing that will last a long time ( something that progresses with you) then I highly recommend the Qubik, The link 2 is definitely a step up from the Gin in all areas but it lacks Tip steering , To put the wing into perspective, I'm a Niviuk comp pilot and fly a competition wing based on the Kouger 2 and doberman 2 but Since I've had the Qubik this is all I fly, Its just as efficient, not quite as fast (4kph slower) but has a lot more stability even in really rough conditions, It's very pitch stable and no oscillation, The perfect wing for going places. The Niviuk R&D team have really upped the game with the current models

    Qubik is a lot faster, more agile but not scary, separate tip steering toggles, it's a great xc wing, as for low airtime pilots, if you are current then 20-30hrs on a beginner wing would be ideal but it depends on the pilot, It's the best standard wing I've flown by a long way and I've flown quite a few

    I just want to set my EOS engine on fire. Not recommended.

    Sorry to here this, on the + side I can think of worse places to be grounded, maybe ask around on social media to see if someone will rent you a motor to at least see some sights good luck
  13. The problem occurs when motoring through a big thermal, on the entrance and exit you have a lot of sinking air just before the rising air this is what can cause collapses if you are not ready, paragliding you are flying actively and looking for the thermal, entering it and climbing with it so you are expecting to get thrown around a bit, theres no problem at all flying PPG in rough conditions if you know what to expect,
  14. Its been a long time coming but they are finally here Niviuk Link 2 ( beginner) and Niviuk Qubik ( Beginner/intermediate) Both wing are full reflex and feature all the latest tech, A few of us got the chance to fly both early in the year and they were a pleasure, albeit they were prototypes but the last version, I've since flown the Link 2 production and its a cracker, Simple/safe and fun, Easy inflation and Very stable in flight with the added bonus of actually having some flare authority which I know some pilots are struggling with from certain brands I am expecting the qubik tomorrow and hoping to fly it over Christmas so will report back then
