If you fly already, you’ll know it – that feeling. The first time your feet leave the ground, the thrill of gliding through the air extinguishing any clammy pre-launch nerves. The pure joy of free flight! The feeling grows, flight after flight, spilling over like Grimm’s Magic Porridge Pot, never running out. The Magic is the perfect partner, from a pilot’s first fly-downs until they are confidently soaring, thermalling and exploring. EN/LTF-A security keeps the pilot safe while BGD handling and solid performance encourage confident progression. The Magic is a wing for pilots to train on, and to keep progressing on long after their school days are behind them.

Description

The Magic takes safety and performance to whole new levels, in a colourful and fun-to-fly package. It’s easy to launch, a joy to thermal and exceptionally roll stable, helping students avoid unintentional side-to-side oscillations. The Magic lightens the workload of learning to fly without reducing the fun: great BGD handling and quick responses ensure it’s always a joy. It has good pitch stability, gently biting forward into lift and reacting very nicely in thermals. Robust and durable materials mean it can cope with the rigours of training, but modern materials manage this without making it heavy – the M size is 4.9kg.

Notes du concepteur

With the Magic I wanted to design the perfect glider for a student to learn on and then to continue to progress with after school, a One Glider concept. The Magic has the safety beginners need, and will continue to look after them as they grow in confidence and become more adventurous. Its spiral behaviour is astounding – spiral stability can be a problem with low aspect-ratio beginner wings, but we have tested the Magic extensively, with different inclinations and sink rates, and never, ever has it stayed in a spiral, once! This is very unusual for a school glider and is a big safety bonus. The brake travel to the stall point is long (72cm) so pilots won’t find themselves accidentally stalling or spinning the wing either. In short I am very excited about the Magic and sure it will bring ‘that feeling’ to whoever flies it.

Spécificités techniques

Cord Cut Billow (CCB)

La mise en forme des panneaux du bord d’attaque avec le Cord Cut Billow réduit significativement les plis généralement présents dans cette zone, surtout quand on utilise de larges cellules. Le Cord Cut Billow est bien plus efficace sur des larges cellules d’une aile EN-A que sur les cellules plus étroites généralement utilisées sur les modèles de la gamme supérieure..

Snap Locks

Les Snap Locks sont des attaches de frein légères et compactes, qui permettent de fixer les freins aux élévateurs sans effort grâce à de petits aimants à l’intérieur de l’attache et un système de blocage qui maintient la poignée dans toutes les directions sauf vers le pilote. Ce concept unique permet d’éviter que les poignées ne tombent en faisant du gonflage, en pliant ou en réalisant certaines manoeuvres. Le système du Snap Lock résoud beaucoup de problèmes liés aux pressions de frein que chaque pilote rencontre.

Shark nose

The shark nose profile keeps the wing pressurised at all angles of attack and optimises stability at all speeds.

Triple finger diagonals

Three-piece diagonal supports across the chord of the wing ensure structural integrity, keeping the wing solid when brake is applied. They are particularly effective near the trailing edge where the profile is thin and the diagonal ribs are shallower with higher loads to support.

Weight optimised ribs

Thanks to our cutting-edge software, we can calculate the precise load supported at specific points along the sail. We can safely eliminate excess, non load-bearing material, reducing weight without affecting cost or wing-profile strength and rigidity.

Trailing edge mini ribs

Trailing edge mini ribs reduce the trailing-edge billow around the brake fold, of larger-celled wings. This creates a smoother trailing edge, and makes for more responsive brake inputs.
