Roberta Perinetti and her Artik 4

A month after the 2017 global XContest started, Roberta Perinetti has taken an early lead in the women’s ranking. After spending a few weeks in Bir Billing, India, she has racked up an impressive 986.5 points already.

Flying her Artik 4, she completed six 100km+ flights in one week. The longest was 151.20 km (181.44 points), which required spending 6:46 hours in the air. Her other flights were 126.37km, 123.08km, 144.65km, 127.47km and 148.94km. She had a rest day on the 24th of October, but in the week between the 19th – 25th October, she was in the air for over 39 hours! An impressive week and excellent flying!

French magazine Free.aero’s latest edition reviewed our latest tandem wing, the completely redesigned Takoo 4.

Respected test pilot Philippe Lami praised the fact that the redesign has improved many aspects and clearly took into consideration the feedback from professional pilots.

He says: “On the Takoo 4, Niviuk choose mylar rigidification integrating a Nitinol rod, set back at least a centimetre from the leading edge”. A much more satisfying option as it is less rough on rocky takeoffs. At the same time: “The shape of the wing is more angular, with a straighter leading edge and wider wing tip. The smoothness of the leading edge is also worth noting, due to nicely tailored 3D Shaping.” 

About the take off characteristics he says: “In a nil wind take off, the wing inflates in a very homogenous fashion and it comes up without reluctance or tendency to overfly. It is quicker than the Takoo 3. In stronger wind, I found it even easier; a docile wing which came up very well in all kinds of take offs, like the cobra one. A very good feature on our windy take-offs in the Southern Alps."

In the air, Philippe found the wing was faster, the controls firmer, but it could be steered with less brake travel. He said: “And in more turbulent conditions, I found the Takoo 4 very good. It hardly needed to be controlled and it clearly had excellent damping in the pitch, without losing its penetration. Releasing the trimmers literally boosted the speed, whilst keeping lots of directional stability and remaining very solid. What makes it different to the Takoo 3 is undoubtedly its tighter trajectory and less need to touch the brakes. The roll has been improved, giving the passenger more damping and making the flight more comfortable for them."

Landing is the most crucial aspect of tandem flying and a safe return to the ground must be assured. Philippe says of the landing characteristics: “The Takoo 4 is more tolerant of low speed approaches, always conserving a bit of extra energy to flare with not much speed. An approach at full speed will also reward you with a landing without having to run, easier than on the Takoo 3."

In conclusions, he says: “After a few hours of flying the Takoo 4, despite the old Takoo 3 being excellent, the improvement is clear: more efficient, less brake, therefore less effort and a delightful glide. As for the rest, inflation and landing are both great. Bonus: Folding is simpler thanks to the Nitinol rods. In addition, these rods don’t distort with time, unlike some nylon ones and will guarantee that the leading edge stays correctly tensioned."
