Solar 7
 
The Solar 7 is a high performance Rogallo designed for Hang 3 pilots or above. The Solar 7 features three sets of wires for negative G loadings, the first to incorporate this type of rigging. Three wing posts give camber and suppor to the leading edges for turbulence encountered in thermal flying. Quick locking tensioners are fitted.
 
The airframe is made from 2024-T3 1.75in x .058, 1 5/8in x .058 and 1.5in x .049 aluminium tubing. Rigging cable is 3/32in 7 x 7 stainless steel. All hardware is aircraft quality. The sail is 3.8oz Howe and Bainbridge stabilised dacron. It was available in 11 colours, and fully battened. A seated or prone harness were options.
