The first production Tala's have spread across the world and we are getting very interesting feedback from the dealers and customers. There appears to be a common thread in their experiences. So far 10 Tala M's are out there and this is what 4 of those ten had to say about their wings:
- Tivoli, Rome, Italy. The first day we flew the Tala M the only wing to get up was the Tala. Everyone else went down to the bottom landing, whilst the Tala managed to find a weak climb and stay up.
- Belo Horizonte, Brazil. When I took off another 'top EN C' took off too. He went to the landing field after some scratching in zeros but I managed to stay at the ridge height and did some passes in front of the launch to the crowd's amazement.
- Annecy, France. I liked the gliders handling and general flying characteristics but unfortunately I was unable to test the performance because I was so much higher than the others all the time!
- Lebanon. The Tala seems to inhale every bit of lift, even my vario was stocked!
Seems like these comments are showing a common theme........
Many thanks to Chris Scammell for the lovely photo of the Tala in the Lake District.
The Tala is out!
