Tecma Medium

Tecma-Medium-01
 
A novice single surface hang glider first built in 1985, through 1998.
 
Built for beginners with light handling and very forgiving due to its floating crossbar. They have tight turning circles and are easy to land in small fields. Although it can be flown in almost any kind of weather, attention should be paid to the fact that you won't move ahead much against strong headwind and it also gets bumpy in thermals. When pulling the bar, you move down, not forward.

The finish is ok, but with minimalistic rigging, and the crossbar tensionnig wire wears out very quickly. Also, be careful that the crossbar doesn't pop out in your face while derigging, a frequent cause of accidents.
