ASPEN 4: The inovative EN-C glider from Gradient with Double Diagonals. (18/12/2011)
The new Aspen4 arrives at Snowdon Gliders any day now in 26 and 28 size. The final testing was done in the South African Karoo and the test team reports that Gradient have exceeded their targets for this new Aspen. The innovative DD (double diagonal) system massively reduces line drag bringing a big gain in performance. Test pilots comment that it is easier to fly that the Aspen3 and that the glider can make very nice flat turns in weaker conditions while still being easy to handle in the strong thermals. We can't wait to have a go!
