Seedwings Vertigo hang glider- free to a good home!
The Vertigo was Seedwings high performance topless glider and this one was made in April 2001. It was built to challenge gliders like the first generation Moyes Litespeed and probably has fairly similar performance. A rare sight in the UK, but more popular in Europe. It has a DHV classification of 2-3.
13m2/140ft2 size suitable for a pilot weight of 55-85kg.
Full Mylar sail (top surface) and leading edge with Dacron undersurface. Carbon fibre cross tubes. All other airframe is aluminium. A spare aerofoil upright (very strong) is included.
Generally in very good condition. The Mylar is starting to wear a little around the tips from folding and packing (fairly typical with curved tip gliders), but once rigged and under tension the sail is still very tight and clean. Some signs of wear and tear, but nothing serious.
Last flown in 2014 and been dry-stored in my garage since then. It would benefit from a thorough inspection or service, but I’m not aware of anything wrong with it. I can’t see me flying it again and I’d like to see someone get some use out of it before it gets any older. I’m not looking for any money for it, but a donation to the Flyability charity or the Air Ambulance would be nice.
I’m based in Shropshire, England. You’re welcome to have a look and I can rig it to show anyone who is genuinely interested. Please note this is a high performance glider and is NOT suitable for low airtime or inexperienced pilots.
