8086 Posted November 7, 2016 Share Posted November 7, 2016 (edited) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZnQej3v06Ic&feature=youtu.be Turning 45 degrees left against torque to avoid overflying neighbours at about 55 feet above ground level wing started descending added power decent increased managed to kill engine before impact into ground. Not impressed this wing does not behave the same as the Force or Force SP both of which I have flown from this field performing the same manoeuvre. Force 2 Wing has been returned to supplier in my opinion it is unfit for my use a full refund was refused. I am awaiting a response on testing from the dealer and the factory. Upon reflection I should have gone hands up and reduced power but then I would have crashed into the trees. Note this wing is sold as “highly agile, fun wing together with never before seen cross country efficiency at high speeds” Apco have increased the aspect ratio on the Force 2 (it is thinner) this combined with the Two Dimensional Integrated Brake Configuration that pulls the wing tips with the brakes, and the new Automatic Balance System that also pulls on the tips along with the slower trim speed seem to have reduced the stability in my opinion. It seems usability has been sacrificed for efficiency also Apco SRS® - Automatic Stall Recovery System does not work that well. Very lucky to walk away with just bruising and sprains.
