Last flight on the Arcus

Recommended Posts

Thanks all. Yes - my username is now somewhat out of date.

Picked up the new wing from Northern Paragliding last week.

Its a Swing Mistral 5.

A bit higher performance DHV 1-2 than the Arcus but DULV certified for motoring use up to 150KG and for use with PPG trimmer risers. Wanted to hill fly it before motoring it but the weather has conspired against me.

I ordered it from the factory with the trimmer risers. Hoping they will make upwind xc's on the motor slightly quicker with trimmers out.

Couldnt find anyone on any forum who'd motored on one but plenty of PGers who really rate it as a hill wing.

By coincidence the latest Skywings has a 2 page review on it which is very positive.

Will let you know how I get on!
