Airwave Gliders Slingshot

 

awburn


The Burn is a freestyle wing with a high trim speed and a small surface area. The Burn’s high wing loading make it perfect for SAT’s, tumbles, reversals, McTwists and all acro manoeuvres.


The Slingshot is the full-blown acro wing that can tackle the latest generation of ‘extreme’ acro manoeuvres like the Infintie Tumble. It comes in two sizes and sits above the very Burn and Burn Extreme acro wings in the range. It delivers impeccable handling during helicopters, SATs and Tumbles and its new profile and special trimming give it enough energy to pull off even the most vertical of manoeuvres, like the Infinite Tumble.


Taking the Mustang XS, some modifications to the general trim of the wing gave it more energy in dynamic manoeuvres, and closing off some of the cell entries towards the tip to give better SAT characteristics. An extra set of E lines offer greater support across the chord when the wing is helicoptered.


The result is a glider that is designed and reinforced for full blown acro, is stable and pressured in all manoeuvres and comes in two sizes. The Slingshot is in two sizes, the 17.5 sq.m for normal acro flying and 16 sq.m for top end acro manoeuvres like the Infinite Tumble.


Although the Slingshot 16 is more dynamic than the 17.5, it is harder to fly in certain manoeuvres due to the increase in wing loading and energy.


The one characteristic of the Slingshot is the way the wing recovers. Even from the most radical situation the Slingshot wants to return to normal flight and fly on.
