For the first time the RAST system is being used for a tandem glider. This has made it possible for our R&D team to utilise the advantages of a larger surface area, and there are marked improvements when it comes to launch behaviour, speed, stability and handling.
Launch behaviour is one of the absolute highlights of TWIN RS and thanks to RAST technology it is very hamonious and forgiving. Even if the conditions are unfavourable and/or the passenger is hesitant in the launch run-up. Even with maximal load the speed to lift is low which additionally helps in launch run. What is most noticeable is that RAST makes launch behaviour simpler when there is a tailwind or no wind. The canopy no longer orients itself to the slope, as used to be the case, but instead becomes airborne much earlier and almost horizontally.
The same behaviour is the reason why the glider does not show any tendency to lift off the pilot unintentionally in strong winds.
It is no exaggeration to describe the flare characteristics of the TWIN RS as outstanding and they make a gentle landing a piece of cake. Both together – easiest launch and landing characteristics – make every flight with TWIN RS a stress-free pleasure.
