Some DHV Test Results

inflation unevenly, delayed
rising behaviour comes over pilot delayed
take off handling average
roll damping average
control travel average
agility average
front collapse opening behaviour spontaneous, delayed
asymm. collapse course change > 360 degrees
asymm. collapse loss of altitude high
asymm. collapse opening behaviour spontaneous, delayed
spiral dive entry average
spiral dive exit turn continues through > 360 degrees
B-line stall entry demanding
B-line stall recovery spontaneous
big ears entry easy
big ears recovery spontaneous, quickly
landing behavior average
All the above were recorded when this Advance paraglider was flown at max weight. At min weight, this wing was rather more challenging! :-/
