alan_k Posted February 17, 2012 Share Posted February 17, 2012 A great afternoon at the strip, got my first flight of the month in. I also got to try out a SynthesisLT, and very interesting it was. There was NIL wind, both wings 29m2. I've had a lot of flights on the Reaction. The Synthesis was definitely easier to inflate but tended to hang back a little, setting was full slow as there was no wind. Take off run slightly longer than on the Reaction. The first noticeable difference was the roll stability, the Reaction has no roll, whereas the Synthesis rolled a little from side to side on climb out. The second big difference were the ALC red balls, wow they were brilliant. The Reaction only has Tip Steering Toggles. The ALC also connects to outer line of the top brake line tier as well as the tip of the wing, and what a difference. Superb turn ability with little force required, definitely a big plus. Tried the Synthesis in full fast trim also and shows a very good turn of speed, no measurements but I guess faster than full fast on the Reaction with no speed bar. A good 600 foot per min descent on full fast also. A nice slow landing on full slow, I rather enjoyed it. Cheers, Alan Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
