Tecma Mambo

Tecma-Mambo
 
An intermediate hang glider first built in 1994.
 
This hang glider is not very light for its category but it has remarkable caracteristics in spiral stability, immediate response, the trajectory in turn, and of slow flight. The quality of manufacture, the completion, the aspect of sail making and the structure are very "clean" and simple.The wing tips are free which facilitates the turning. It parachutes well if we pushed (really) too early. It can accelerate a little, but doesn’t reach the 70 km / h of the Vne.
 
A spin is difficult but possible, loop impossible. No spiral instability at 82 kg of pilot weight hooked under the 160, and even a slight tendency to leave the curve at this wing load.Limits: when pulling (progressive force but important), the wing descends more than it accelerates. The rate falls over 45-50 km / h, so the transitions are slow.
