Eipper-Formance Flexi 2
 
Eipper-Flexi2
 
The Flexi 2 replaced the original Flexi Flier. It features fibreglass battens on each wing tip which allows wider tip chords, allowing a flatter sail cut while maintain docile slow speed and parachuting stall characteristics.
 
All aluminimum components are anodised, and the triangle bar is adjustable to two positions for seaed and prone flying. Spar saddles are bushed onto tubes for better distribution of loads, and tensioners are used on top rigging, replacing turnbuckles. Wingpost blades are standard equipment, eliminating spar deflection.
 
The 18ft, 20ft and 22ft Flexi 2’s use 1.5in, 1 5/8in and 1.75in .049in diameter tubing respectively. All tubing is clear anodised 6061-T6 aluminium. All stress points are reinforced with internal sleeving and all holes are bushed. The Triangle bar is 6061-T6 ix.083in black anodised aluminium.

All hardware is polished stainless steel and black anodised aluminium. Nuts and bolts are all to AN specifications.
 
The sail is Howe & Bainbridge 3.8ox stabilised dacron available in 11 colours. All seams are double zig-zag stiched and stress points are reinforced with 9oz cloth.
 
Seated harness and supne harness use individual leg straps and a wide back strap is used on both systems with supine having fibreglass stiffeners added for comfort.
