what do you think


Recommended Posts

I would love to see the stats on this.

1. size of each glider

2. take off weight of each glider

3. trim position of each glider

4. speed bar position of each gliger


As these could all make a big diference to the outcome, I think it is really misleading without this information.

I have no idea which is fastest in the real world but you NEED all the facts for it to be objective. :)

I flew my nivuk hook 1-2 glider with 2 reflex wings the other day off-on bar they left me for dust. cant see an Antea being faster,yes it would recover better,but off the reflexs ive seen, fusion for one.never seen the pilots have any tucks etc,even in very bumpy or thermic weather, suppose i could take of haft hr earlier than the reflex wings,but they probly over take me anyway lol

None of us should fall into the 'Dull' propaganda machine and neither also speak of which wing is faster than another. It's all been over done several times on this forum (and other forums) before. We all know the factors affecting speed and we're not going to succumb to "this is faster and and that's faster" again (hopefully).

Just look up the (very limited) official test results and be content with their assessments.

"Within any recent unmodified EN class (A/B/C/D) and at the same weight/wing area, you won't see more than 5kph difference in all speed levels (stall/trim/speed bar) of any wing"


PS - Jock, buy an 8 sqm speed wing and you'll be faster than anyone!
