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

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 standard technique
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 Mcc Amaya paraglider was flown at max weight.

Color Schemes

The simple graphics below represent the available color schemes for the Mcc Amaya. Colors are only approximate, and so is the outline of the wing. But it gives you some idea. I've named them according to the leading edge (l.e.) color.
