Un sérieux challenger en vitesse pour le gryphon. Mais si le Gryphon était camion, celui-là était limite pilotable... sauf pour monsieur Muscle.


" ... celui-là était limite pilotable... sauf pour monsieur Muscle"
Cette critique était (peut être) valable pour les premières versions. Mon cyclone, acheté en 1979 (3ième au championnats du monde), a été modifié en 1980 pour y inclure une cross-barre flottante de superbe facture.
Mes petits 48 Kgs balançaient cette merveilleuse aile dans touts les sens :
Très bonne manœuvrabilités, extrême nervosité grâce aux câbles reliant le trapèze aux bouts d'ailes. c'est, comme mon laminar, une aile qui se pilote d'abord en tangage !

I saw an early cyclone violently "tucking" on Mill Hill near Brighton. Must have been 1978 or 1979. I was preparing for launch myself watching this cyclone soaring above all other gliders. A little late the pilot decided to come in for a top landing and at his downwind leg he probably stalled, dived and then we saw him pushing the bar to try to recover attitude but instead of that the glider picked up more and more speed until the glider tucked with a violent just before impacting the ground. The tuck broke the glide and amazingly also its speed, and the pilot miraculously survived with a slight concussion after some hill side bushes had broken his fall even more. He was very lucky to survive! I spoke to him the next day. he was talking about getting a new glider because he couldn't wait to fly again...


I flew a red, white and green Cyclone for some time, first XCs, first comps, national league and then first internationals. It was a fantastic machine and ripe for development. Murray Rose (owner of Chargus who made the Cyclone) made some adjustments to the factory demonstrator and gave it to Jo Binns and myself to try out (must be about 1979). We took it to Martinsale in a SE wind and were amazed at the transformation. Murray had removed the fixed connection between keel and the crosstube, replacing it with a floating rod - the first floating keel. Handling was transformed. After a first flight each, the keel pocket was obviously snagging, so Jo grabbed some scissors and we trimmed the keel pocket down. Jo flew, landed with a huge grin and handed it over. It was even better and we never flew fixed-keel again. Yes, it would spin, but with a relatively wide nose angle, the pitch was predictably light and had a lot of movement available. Push the bar to 360 like the contemporary wide-nose wings of the day and it would bite (as I found out). A Northampton pilot, John Sharp eventually took my wing, added a double surface and flew it for years.
