Guggenmos E-7



The E-7 by Joe Guggenmos (ex World HG Champ) at first glance looks similar to the Exxtacy, however it has a tapered wing (both chord and D-Cell cross section) using separate right and left moulds. It has control bar activated spoilers, is 152 sq.ft, 10.43 aspect, 39ft span, spoilers and flaps fold up with the glider, 18.5ft (5.6m) long in the bag and weighs just 68 lbs (31 kg). Joe claims a glide of over 17:1, a sink rate of 137 ft/min and handling better than other rigids. The spoilers are mounted at the high point of the airfoil, pre-empting any nose up movement when they are deployed.




The E-7 carbon fibre rigid wing was first built in August 1998 and he has been flying and testing it ever since. It was DHV certified and in production at the Guggenmos factory in Germany.
