Movable CG 2010-10-13
This year we have started to use the new revolutionary system with movable CG hang point on our gliders. The system was designed and developed by our Swiss dealer Markus Eggimann and was tested in different competitions by our top pilots: Primoz Gricar, Christian Voiblet, Franz Hermann and other pilots. The system enables to move the hang point along the keel tube, allowing the pilot to vary CG of the glider in flight from aft to forward position. The aft CG is good to maximize the climb rate when climbing in relatively weak thermals. The forward CG position enables to increase safety when climbing and gliding, specially in strong and rough conditions and increase comfort on glide by reducing the bar pressure. The system is easy to operate by engaging the additional rope and the clam cleat on the left side of the speed bar.
