This wing is still in Good condition. Approximately 60 hrs
Orca XX is a universal tandem wing of EN B class and 5,3 aspect ratio (53 cells). It offers exceptionally easy launch, perfect handling and highest passive safety accompanied by performance of a single-seater. The paraglider is designed and manufactured under new FlexiEdge technology in a state-of-the-art production process.
The paraglider is dedicated both for free-flying with passenger and for light paramotor trikes. Four-row canopy with rigid cores (Dudek FlexiEdge technology) blends recent experiences of testing other prototypes featuring this technology with long-standing info received over years from happy users of the original Orca. The aspect ratio and other factors were carefully calculated in order to make full advantage of new technologies, while retaining optimal mix of passive safety, performance and steering for this class. The aerofoil used in Orca XX has Shark-nose intakes – they help to internal pressure of the canopy stays stable within wide speed range.
Inner reinforcements, structural cores and mini-ribs perfectly shape and stabilize the aerofoil. Mini-ribs on the trailing edge keep it slim and decrease ballooning, radically improving the airflow. Rigging has been redesigned too – total lines length decreased by 15% as compared to Orca, bringing further improvements. All in all, we succeeded in creating a perfectly balanced design, mixing great performance with safety and stability. In turbulence the paraglider behaves very reassuring and predictable, with efficient damping of both longitudinal and lateral oscillations.
OrcaXX easily inflates and rises, without lagging behind. Then it stabilizes and with slight brake action simply flies away. On the landing approach it is enough to brake down a little in order to markedly decrease speed with ensuing soft touchdown. All tandem pilots appreciate those features, so we’ve put quite an effort into polishing them to perfection.
