Stealth

 

In 1995 a new machine on the Stalker basis was designed, with internal membrane ribs. It was named Stealth. After sport season and flights at the World Championship in Spain overall sail and partially frame configuration has been changed and by the end of the year the Stealth appearance was finally set.
 
A high performance glider, it was known for its quick handling and tricky landing characteristics. ThS stealth line began life as a kingposted glider and evolved into a topless wing. First the kingpost was mostly removed, but retained the top few inches for the kingpost hangpoint. Then the kingpost was removed completely and the trademark aluminum box crossbars were replaced with square carbon fiber crossbars. The stealth eventually evolved into the Combat glider line.

The sports hang glider designs, Stealth 14 KPL and Stealth 13 KPL, were prepared for manufacture in 1997.

Kingpostless Stealths of all sizes receive airworthiness certificates in BHPA and DHV (Germany) in 1998. Stealth became a popular design, within a year 150 wings of this type has been manufactured.
