Niviuk's applied technology

Takoo 5 https://niviuk.com/ https://niviuk.com//legal/3

Optimisation of the leading edge

The leading edge has been redesigned and features all our latest technologies, including 3DL, 3DP, SLE and TNT. This reduces creases and makes the wing more taut, which means a cleaner finish and therefore more performance. It also means the wing is more solid and better at absorbing turbulence.

New internal structure based on the RSD technology

The internal structure has been redesigned by altering the orientation of the diagonal ribs and tension bands to achieve a more optimal distribution of forces to improve durability and reduce deformations.

New profile

This new model features a very stable profile, which translates into less turbulence in flight and helps maintain a more constant speed range. Passenger and pilot will benefit from greater comfort in flight.

New feature on the risers

Due to the optimisation of Ear Lock System (ELS) the pilot can adjust the size of the big ears and thus achieve a fast and comfortable descent.

Optimisation of the trailing edge

With the application of the Drag Reduction Structure (DRS), the airflow is directed more progressively along the trailing edge. This reduces the aerodynamic drag and the brake pressure required.

Optimisation of the reinforcements and attachment points

Due to the redesign of the internal structure, it has been possible to reduce the tension on the attachment points and improve the force distribution.

More durable lineset

The Takoo 5 has 160 lines; a reduction of 9% in comparison to its predecessor. In order to increase their durability all lines are sheathed.

Innovations in the materials

A combination of different cloths improves durability and strength, without compromising on lightness. On the upper surface, Dokdo 40 g/m2 has been used to provide additional robustness in the front part of the leading edge and Dokdo 36 g/m2 has been used on the remaining part. The undersurface has been designed with the semi-lightweight Dokdo 32 g/m2 cloth that offers a good balance between weight and durability.
