Alright. Last week, a long box was delivered in Antwerp. And this weekend, I could finally unpack it. Doesn't it already look good?
Even while it still is short-packed? Lol ;-)
This is a rather nice change: the pushpins on the A-frame corners are a bit bigger. Can be handy!
This one has a keel cover. But what surprises me a little is the pushpin instead of a quick release to unlock the keel. The pushpin is something which is not as easy to use as a quick release and, more importantly, something you can lose on a rocky surface or in long grass...
Inside the right wing:
I didn't order the new winglets, but apparently they are the new standard now. They are incredibly light. I'm curious how they fly. Will need to test :-)
The pulleys for the moveable CG system which gives more comfortable high speed glides:
The fully tensioned top surface of the right wing looking clean:
And a clean center section as well:
Oooooh, look at this, the blade in full glory! I hope it flies as good as it looks!
And of course, no sail rolls nicer than a Combat sail:
I simply can't wait to fly it, but I still need longer hang straps. Forgot to mention that on the order... Anyway, let's hope we get a nice day soon. I've read too many Australian and Slovenian reports and seen too many pictures! Fingers crossed for an unstable spring :-)
