Heavy Carbon II

After 4 years from the building of the slope glider Heavy Carbon I, I built the next one, Heavy Carbon II.



Here the link of the building.

I hope is of interest.

Beautiful glider Gian. Love The bare carbon look.

Visited Italy last summer. Beautiful country side.

The building, translated with a web translator.

Sorry, just the web translator at this time, I have no time at the moment. In the next future I will translate better.

I saw Gian Marco flying the Heavy Carbon II last week, performed well at wide speed range, no bad habits and very quiet even at high speed.

What a great accomplishment. Looks like it tracks very well and can rip through the turns when the wind is up. Do you plan to DS it?

Well comparing to other gliders born for DS as Opus, wizard compact and others, the chords of the HC2 are very narrow. Anyway the spar is very hard (more than half of the wing's weight is of unidirectional carbon) so I will try DS soon!

The Heavy Carbon 1 was not as fast as the 2 in low conditions, but did a nice DS:
