Tecma Boomerang
 
Tech-Boom-01
Boomerang Fz
 
Tecma started building the boomerang, then designed the Boomerang fz (at the time, Walbec had broken the distance record with it) and finally the boomerang XM which had 4 battens less than the others.
 
The 1989 fz model was available in 2 sizes, 135 and 147.

The early boomerangs had a B sign in the middle of the Tecma logo, not fz.
 
Tech-Boom-02
Boomerang FZR
 
The Boomerang XM is reported as very easy to fly, handy and easy to land. Take-off is no problem, especially with the 126 which is very light and perfectly balanced. In case of overpilot, release the bar, the wing calms down immediately. Very lively, very playful, but not vicious for all that. A good wing, but not really made for long flights because physical in the long run.
