C'est une bonne aile qui tolère bien la turbulence et les petites erreurs à l'atterro.
Par contre le problème ce sont les montant de trapèze.
Il faut en prévoir d'avance dans ce sport et je ne sais pas ou en trouver car c'est un diamètre 29 en 165.
Je pense que du 25 irait aussi en bidouillant mais j'ai du mal à trouver des montants sur Paris.
I brought a Calypso, shortly after gaining ep back in 2003. A good dependable glider , it looked after me when i was green, and low houred. Most of my launches were winch, and i suffered several launch failures over hundreds of launches. During one such event,on realising something was wrong, i dumped the tow. The glider immediately dropped it's nose to recover speed, turning as it did. I landed back at launch as if nothing had happened, all in front of a new student , who didn't even realise something had gone wrong.
The incident, oh a lockout, a wing stalled during climb out, thanks to a thermal rocking though. A turn developed toward the stalled wing that i couldn't correct, so i dumped the tow. The reason for the turn during recovery was due to a very slight bend in the right leading edge tube, found during it's first check. I still own this glider, and it's still airworthy. Actually it's just completed it's annual check, ready for next year, alongside my Target.
