Spantik

Progression and fun

The Spantik is the result of over a year of design and development , with our new team : an original wing, easy to use , efficient , lightweight and compact.

Spantik

This wing is aimed at a wide range of pilots , from the intermediate pilot looking to improve his skills in safety, to the most experienced pilots looking for a simple but high performance wing which will allow him to fly cross-country, hike or bivouac or even just have fun doing waggas.

The NERVURES « touch » begins in the carrying : low weight and good compactness , thanks to our choice of PORCHER Skytex ( 38,32 and 27 g / m²) which is now widely proven as a reliable material.

Pre-flight wing preparation is facilitated by a simple suspension scheme and the quality of lines used which offer good fluidity (less lightly to entangle).
In zero or light wind the wing rises with lightness and stabilizes easily without tendency to overshoot ; with stonger wind the spantik needs only a little control from the pilot when arriving above the head .
The brake travel is important and provides access to a wide variety of flight regimes . The response is precise and effective in the first 30-40 centimeters . Good efficiency in yaw effect makes very effective thermal flying . It accepts easily slow flight . The flare is generous and predictable .

The speed system is identical to that the DIAMIR . Without significantly degrading the glide ratio, it provides good stability and good resistance to turbulence. The ball bearing blocks provide flexibility for active control in longer transitions.
All these advantages make this glider an original and pleasant companion in the sky. Thanks to its low weight and small package volume whether used for on site, hike and fly or traveling, the Spantik will follow you everywhere , including in aircraft hand luggage!
