Simplification was the ultimate ambition. Simple with the handling but also in the construction – thus already in the attention was paid to a light canopy construction. The small weight of the
wing is facilitating the sweet-tempered flying features of the dynamic wing. Nevertheless U-Turn is setting great value upont he longevity and high form fidelity of its wings and this way much effort
was put in the acro glider BLACKOUT to preserve the exceptional flying features under extreme workload for a long time.
Even though the BLACKOUT is mastering all acro maneuvers without problems, attention was paid to the fact that the glider forgives mistakes of the pilot. Brake and canopy tension were picked accordingly, so that acro beginners can obtain senses of achievement fast. Especially in the basic maneuvers like rhythmic sat / infinity / heli2sat / sat2heli / misty / mctwist / misty2heli much value was set upon simple handling. The turn on in the passage of all negative maneuvers is very homogenous with the BLACKOUT which reduces the tendency to twist and therefore supplies more safety especially to acro beginners. An important aspect in all the test flights, was the optimization of the brake pressure. For example at the size 17 with 93 kg pilot weight the double acro brake is not necessary anymore - without winding or grasping to the second stage all maneuvers are possible, also the corkscrew or mctwist like team pilot Simon Winklir is raving.
The BLACKOUT is available as of now in the following sizes:
