Skywalk Tequila 3 in Large 100/120 kg Very good condition, still very crispy & clean. Green/White/Black colour’s . Welcome to come and view and depending on time, weather, location and experience possibly test fly. Has a few tiny patches covering tiny pinpricks caused by moorgrass, not really necessary just a precaution ( over reaction ? ) less than 50 hours and flys like new. Always stored loose in the spare room.
The Tequila 3 is equipped with rigid foil technology in the leading edge.
Performance is improved thanks to a more than 20 percent savings in drag. An excellent allround wing with direct, simple handling and excellent launch performance. It’s fun to fly!
True 3-line technology with greatly reduced drag for more performance and easier line sorting. Three line levels from the risers to the wing without line junctions.
HYBRID LINE GEOMETRY
The perfect mix of Aramid and Dyneema lines maximizes durability and minimizes trim changes over the lifecycle of your glider. This optimal use of line materials lowers air resistance and minimizes weight.
The leading edge is reinforced with flexible nylon battens.The result is a substantial weight savings that positively affects the handling in extreme conditions. The Rigid Foil technology gives that the leading edge maintains an optimal shape to ensure even airflow over the wing and a constant ram air pressure. The wing glides better, especially in accelerated flight. During launch, the battens hold the leading edge open, making inflation easy
By narrowing the cross section of the slit (channel), Jet Flaps create a Venturi effect that accelerates the airflow. The air is redirected from the lower sail (pressure area) to the upper sail (suction area) where it exits. Airflow separation is delayed, the stall occurs later, minimum speed is reduced, and the pilot has more angle of attack reserve. This is a considerable benefit during critical phases like launch, landing and tight thermals.
