If you have additional information (ex: specificity of piloting, various characteristics...) on the hang glider Medil by Tecma Sport, you can supplement his card by adding your comment or write to us :
I am very interested in Tecma Medil. It is the only one fast ready-to-fly Glider on the market. Lazy pilots are growing Group of users and that is the reason why Paragliding will be more and more popular.
I'd be very interested in a wing that sets up in 2 minutes as well. From the Tecma web site though they state the weight including bag is 32kg or about 74lbs. I understand a tandem wing needing to be larger and heavier, but that's as much as a good topless wing.
Bien vu... mais à quand le meme en version monoplace, plus légère et pliable en 2 mètres ?
Looks like the 32kilos was for the tandem model. Though there is no mention of a single place version I'm told it is closer to 24kilos. The Vne is not too impressive though at 55kph, not much better than the average paraglider
[Translation of the original French comment]
I used to fly tandem with a La Mouette, Lancer, Etoile, Dilit and I own a brand new tandem Sphinx (5 flights only) that I would happily swap for a tandem Medil, for ski flights.
bonjour , je suis interesser par un medil vendu par mon club et je souhaite faire mes premiers grands vols dessus , est ce que c'est recommandable ?
Autrement question finesse et comportement en ascendance , cela donne quoi ?
Un autre probleme , est ce que le medil 16 conviendra vraiment au pilote de 70 kg que je suis ey qui apprecie une grande maniabilité de son aile ?
bonjour, j'ai eu la chance d'en trouver un quazi neuf. Jai dit au revoir a mon spirale pour adopter le medil 16, le meme qu' l'ecole, je pese 60kg l'aile est tres maniable, stable et saine, a recommander absolument !! montage en 2 min.!!!
I contacted the factory earlier this year about building me a Medil. Unfortunately, they refused.
I’ve been pushing radial batten wings for years in trike forums and perhaps someday they will re-emerge. There appears to be interest in the trike community.
finally - maiden flight of the 5min. ready-to-fly HG-trike was made :) Very good wing for the old lazy motor pilot.
