XT 145

 

The 1990 Intermediate Moyes XT 165 is reputed to be a good first glider, very safe, stable, with better performance then a floater. The 70 % double surface wing has Mylar in the leading edge.

The XT145 has a very low stall speed and excellent flare authority across the full recommended wing loading area. Easy to launch because the glider with its positive handling at lower air speeds gives maximum control and safety. The quick roll response and incredible sink rate make for easy thermalling, and the Moyes XT145 perfectly compliments the Moyes Sonic, and extends the range of available gliders for lighter pilots.

It is recommended to check batten profiles periodically and "flip" leading edge mylar every 20 hours or so.
