This one is really suprising!! I own a Sting 2 XC as well, but the Sting 3 is even easier in handling. Take off and landings are easy to do and thermalling quality is very impressive. No need to buy a performance glider for getting up into the air. With the VG range it's easy to go for a big XC task.
Try to testfly one and you will be convinced. Another nice detail is the set up time, according to some other gliders.
The Sting 3 is a realy good choice for recreational pilots with XC ambitions.

I purchased a Sting 3:168 after flying an Aeros Target as an upgrade and something I could use for Aerotowing. I now regularly Hill, Winch and Aerotow the Sting 3:168. What a great glider! It performs well in all disciplines and is a great all round glider. The thing I admire the most, landing it! It's a real sweet glider and I'd highly recommend it!

Llevo 2 años con esta ala. Unos 20 vuelos.

Muy fácil de despegar y aterrizar. Tiene un planeo formidable. El overdrive tiene un uso de "aprendizaje" ya que no se aprecia mucho cuando lo usamos, si cuando lo usamos al completo, el ala penetra mejor en condiciones de viento fuerte.

Es un ala fácil de montar, muy buena construcción. Estaba entre la Sport 2 y la Sting 3, al final me decidí por esta última y estoy muy contento. Cualquier duda, pueden ponerse en contacto conmigo a través de este email, puedo enviar fotos o vídeos:

Flew a Sting 3 with mosquito NRG the other day and I must say it was the easiest double-surface wing to land I have ever tried. The geometry of the uprights is also optimal for landing with motor harness. Well done Airborne!!!
