Powerplay Sting with speed bar

In the manual to the Powerplay Sting 160, it states that "the speed bar must not be used in motorised flight". Although I have found references on the web to pilots using speed bar with the above wing. Has anybody here used speed bar with this wing?

Agreeing with others, it will be a case of not having undergone DULV certification in accelerated mode I should think, so they say don't do it. I fly my Arcus, an identical wing with PowerPlay risers, with trim full out and full 'bar, frequently, and thus far not had any issues even in some quite ermmmm.... dynamic conditions.

Thanks Phil, that is what I thought, as you say same wing as Arcus & I have found references everywhere with people flying both wings with speed bar. Never found anything to suggest otherwise. I have been struggling to make ground a few times, even with trims out.

What speed do you reckon with trims open & bar?
