So far, I’ve wasted money on two old wings that I can’t even kite properly.
Yeah, I know. Some guys have to learn the hard way. *_^
I was just wondering if someone could give me some advice on what to look for when
choosing a wing. I know newer is better, but am not sure exactly what makes a design better.
If I had the money, I’d go for new APCO hybrid, but I don’t.
I’ve seen some dudek wings for sale, but I am clueless as to what size I should be looking at.
The only training I could do will be next spring now, and 9 hours away (provided the weather cooperates and
I can get time off work and I can scratch enough money together to pay for it all)
Is a Pluto worth looking at? How about sky paragliders or dominator?
I am 102 kg soaking wet, but I found that I can get that down if I do enough ground handling.
So, sorry for the rambling, incoherent post, but I hope someone could help me understand wings a bit
The first wing I had was an AXIS stardust 28m2 - It was HUGE! I finally did get it in the air but I needed so much wind to do it that it was dangerous. There was no hope of nil wind kiting.
Then I got an EDEL (I think it was called a rainbow) small size, much easier to handle but still could not
kite it worth a hoot. Someone on here told me it’s because these older wings are just hard to handle and
I should be looking at more modern designs. So that is the reason for my post. I am looking for some
insight on what makes a wing modern, what designs are good for a beginner etc.
Thanks in advance
