Amokka 202


A year ago Amokka 202, a 2m composite plank made by Frank Fessler saw the light and sky for the first time. Here is a video from the plane under god conditions, 5Btf and no ballast:

Amokka Hoamalm (3 min 2 sec)



looks like it does all, what we have hoped for.

Makes you want to shout 'Whee'
Beautifully flown.And what a valley! "God conditions"is an excellent description,(spell error I presume)
Custom airfoils?

Is this raw video?
From the jerky pans, it appears to be speeded up.

Nice glider !

Too bad that the person manning the video doesn't realize that we folks who are not present would like to see what the aircraft looks like close up on the ground. Maybe you have some photos ???

hej all

yeah god conditions.....a Freudian slip maybe :-)
The plane is comercially available: http://www.drops-factory.com/amokka-202/

I also did a small article in the German Aufwind Magazin about the plane. Maybe I can do a wrap up here (have to talk with the editor). I will also soon release the airfoils of the Amokka 1:
The Amokka Plank video (6 min 23 sec)
together with an article more.
I will publish the airfoils here too. They are somewhat similar to these of the Amokka 202.

If you have some more specific questions I am happy to answer them.

yours Peter....but remember, I am not impartial :-()

Not just the speed, but the speed range is impressive. Those last close passes were half the speed of the aerobatic flight!
Congratulations!

It is unique and probably the best plank ever made.
BUT WAY OVERPRICED BY DROPS-FACTORY.

Over or under priced would be determined by sales. Plenty of people pay over $1000 for competition DLG's. I wish Drops Factory great success, although I don't have a budget for their prices. So I design-build-fly-crash and enjoy what I have.

Second video of the Amokka 202 from the Mt Lema. I know it is expensive, but with the quality I can not produce cheaper ;-)
