This is a glider designed for pilots who already have a good fundamental basis in acro and are wanting to step up to the next level.
The Freestyle3 is designed to be a dynamic glider which allows for a good range of freestyle moves, yet stable by nature, and predictable enough even at lower speeds to give us confidence.
Fun, dynamic, and great to ground-handle, the Freestyle3 is an ideal glider for those hours of soaring and for flying near the mountain. The smaller sizes might be considered prohibitive in weaker winds, but this glider is an entirely capable machine with the right wind velocity.
HIKE AND FLY
This glider was not designed with hike and fly in mind.
Thanks to its precision turning capability the Freestyle3 allows us to thermal efficiently once the conditions are working properly. In transition the glide-ratio might not be as good as wings designed purely for XC, but this wing is capable of logging some kilometers with no extraordinary difficulty.
If you like playing in stronger winds, if you like working on freestyle and acro moves, or even if you just like throwing some waggas and touching the wingtip in the sand then the Freestyle3 is for you. Training with this glider will help you fine-tune your flight techniques, rise to a higher level, and allow you to envisage the transition towards a pure acro glider.
The Freestyle3 was made for pilots with an established notion of acro and who wish step up to the next level. Helicopters, tumbling, transition between tricks ….. More demanding than the XStyle yet accessible in a way the Agility is not, the Freestyle3 is the perfect stepping stone towards a purely acro oriented glider.
The Freestyle3 is not a glider designed for competition at the highest level, but can certainly be used for beginning competitors with complete confidence.
