UP Kantega XC

12/16/08

The Kantega XC was designed for intermediate pilots with a yearning for thermal and XC adventures. Its forgiving nature coupled with very efficient thermalling characteristics, and its awe-inspiring glide at all speeds right up to the impressive 53km/h top speed, make it the perfect companion for everything from local flights up to long XC flights – both open distance and closed-circuit! The general consensus out there has always been that LTF 1-2 wings were good for local flights, and all right for downwind XC flying. However, the Kantega XC joins a very select club of intermediate wings offering the rare combination of high passive safety AND the good glide performance in accelerated flight so critically necessary for into-wind or cross wind gliding. In other words it is just what you need to complete that FAI triangle you have been working on all season, yet never too much of a handful for relaxed top-to-bottom glides.

In April 2009 UP will introduce its all-new Kantega XC. All sizes are expected to be certified in the LTF 1-2/EN B category, and will begin shipping to dealers in April 2009.
