Flight Design Exxtacy
Fliegerböhm Axxess
 
FD-Exxtacy
 
A rigid wing light hang glider from 1996.Very safe to fly, sink rate below 0.8m/s, glide ratio above 16, speed range from 32 to more than 110 km/h.
 
Handling at take off is typical rigid wing stuff: does not require any assistance in strong winds, as the spoiler will lift up and bring the wings level without any pilot input. Normal cruising speed is about 35km/h in thermals, 50 km/h straight.
 
Fli-Des-Exxt-02
 
Very light in turns and very stable trajectory at speed hence excellent for aero-towing. In thermals, its stability in roll requires sensitive pilot input to climb well. Not much affected by turbulence, only in pitch. Landing is easier than on a flex wing.

When folded, the weight and bulk can be problematic but splitting the wing in two halves helps.
 
Flight Design no longer produces wings and rigid. But fliegerboehm continues the manufacture of rigid Exxtacy.
 
From 1999 the Exxtacy was improved: reduced weight 35kg / 38 kg; length of the large model: 570 cm and the weight of the mini / maxi 100 kg / 160 kg.
 
Tthere is a biplace model.
