Some CEN Test Results

take-off - rising behaviour smooth, easy and constant rising
take-off - special technique? no
landing - special technique? no
speed range > 10 kph using controls yes
roll stability and damping - oscillations reducing
gentle spirals - return to straight flight spontaneous exit
steep banks - sink rate after 2 turns up to 12 m/s
symmetric front collapse - entry rocking back less than 45 degrees
symmetric front collapse - recovery 3 to 5 sec.
full stall - dive forward angle 30 to 60°
full stall - collapse? no
full stall - rocking back less than 45°
assymetric collapse 50% - attitude less than 90° dive or 0 to 15° roll
assymetric collapse 50% - re-inflation spontaneous
assymetric collapse 50% - course change less than 360°
assymetric collapse 75% - attitude less than 90° dive or 45 to 60° roll
assymetric collapse 75% - re-inflation spontaneous
assymetric collapse 75% - course change less than 360°
maintained collapse - able to maintain course yes
maintained collapse - 180° turn away yes, under 10 seconds
tends to spin at low speed? no
after release from developed spin stops spinning in less than 90°
B-line stall, before release - course change less than 45°
B-line stall, before release - behavior remains stable with straight span
B-line stall, after release - recovery spontaneous in less than 3 sec.
B-line stall, after release - dive angle 0 to 30°
big ears - entry procedure dedicated controls
big ears - behavior stable flight
big ears - recovery spontaneous in less than 3 sec.
big ears - dive forward on exit 0 to 30°
steep spiral - exit behavior spontaneous exit
steep spiral - recovery turn angle less than 720°, spontaneous recovery
All the above were recorded when the Axis Vega 2 was flown at max weight.

Color Schemes

The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the Axis Vega 2. Colors are only approximate, and so is the outline of the wing. But it gives you some idea.
