Let's talk about Sir Edmund's basic facts and his flight characteristics. https://vimeo.com/186226612
The first size available of Sir Edmund is 20m2 and it is certified according to LTF and EN B. That wing is made for a weight range of 70 to 100kg. With it's unbelievable weight of only 1,58kg it currently is the lightest available single-skin AND additionally it possesses the complete flight and load test capability.
At take-off Sir Edmund shows a persuasive, easy handling. A short and slight impulse is enough to make Sir Edmund stand stable above the pilot's head - without any tendency to break out or dash forward. The handling is pretty much straight forward, so that you can easily circle in thermals. Glider available from DSC 2017
