If you have additional information (ex: specificity of piloting, various characteristics...) on the hang glider Rumour by Solar Wings, you can supplement his card by adding your comment or write to us :
Very stable glider good in a straight line, but can be a little stiff in roll.
Plenty of examples around so not too expensive-good intermediate glider with reasonable performance, for 35hrs + pilot wanting to upgrade from calypso or similar on a budget.
Now have 600 hours on mine and it still flies great.
Easy landings and rock solid in turbulance.
Worth nothing now so will keep it forever HAHA!
[Translation of the original French comment]
The Rumor allowed Solar Wings to keep up with its UK competitor (i.e. Airwave) by winning the French and Italian championships in 89 and the UK ones in 89 and 90
Just bought another this year in May 2007 for £200 to replace my old Rumour with 800 Hours on it..
Still was nice to fly.... I rate these old ships
I agree with Mike H I have had 4 Rumour 1 s. and love it. My day to day glider, last flown yesterday at Dunstable Downs.
