What was meant to simply be a basic scaling down of our LOL 20 has evolved into the development of an entirely new model. The lessons learned from the development of the Diamir (adoption of the rods, the associated system of pinches) have brought to the LOL significant progress on multiple points: consistent and reliable inflation in all conditions, modification of the pitch stability and enlargement of the flying domain in the high angles of attack (take-off, efficiency in thermals and precision of flight). The LOL II 18 is also being tested during the week beginning the 12th Sept. All being well we will accept first orders at St Hilaire.
