Unflown MacPara Outback made in June 2020 in colour scheme white (NB not the colour in the photo). This was purchased as a review wing but we ended up using another wing for the actual review and photos. Comes with all the normal accessories. The wing is packaged as it came from the factory and has not been flown or ground-handled.
The Outback is a lightweight hike-and-fly wing certified EN B over a wide weight range. When we reviewed it in Cross Country magazine the reviewer concluded:
I think the Outback makes a very good hike-and-fly and mountain wing. It’s light – not the lightest out there, but 2.7kg is more than acceptable – and features like the sheathed lines and proper brake handles make it rugged enough to cope with rough launches, and give it the in-flight comfort and performance you need so you don’t end up heading straight down to the landing after 15 minutes’ airtime. It’s a pleasure to thermal and comfortable in rough air.
As an aside, any couples with young children who take turns to escape the family duties for a hike-and-fly, one wing with a wide weight range … that has to be handy for a wing to share?
