Some EN 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 spontaneous less than 3 sec
full stall - dive forward angle 30 to 60°
full stall - collapse? no
full stall - rocking back less than 45°
asymmetric collapse 50% - attitude max dive or roll 0 to 15°
asymmetric collapse 50% - re-inflation spontaneous
asymmetric collapse 50% - total course change less than 360°
asymmetric collapse 75% - attitude max dive or roll 15 to 45°

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 stable with straight span
B-line stall, after release - recovery spontaneous in less than 3 s
B-line stall, after release - dive angle 0 to 30°
big ears - entry procedure standard technique
big ears - behavior stable flight
big ears - recovery through pilot action in less than a further 3 s
big ears - dive forward on exit 0 to 30°
steep spiral - exit behavior spontaneous exit
steep spiral - recovery less than 720°, spontaneous recovery
All the above were recorded when this Skywalk paraglider was flown at max weight.
