Charger - 3D Design

 

The Charger - Performance Freedom Flying

The Charger is a full-blooded reflex paramotoring glider. New and seasoned pilots alike will immediately feel comfortable flying the Charger and appreciate its incredibly easy launching and landing characteristics, superb stability and excellent cruising speed.

 

Looks and Feels Good!

The Charger is the ultimate 'pilot friendly' paramotor wing, both in the sky and on the ground. Extremely resistant to collapse, the Charger will put you at ease and allow you to enjoy the scenery, instead of worrying 'what's next!'.  And with the exciting new contemporary look of the Charger, you'll be the envy of everyone in the air!

While flying this beauty you'll notice right away that it is capable of performing everything you need to enjoy the air and not feel like your missing out.

 

No Time Wasted on Launch – perfect for initial PPG training

The Charger, as with all MACPARA gliders, is designed with ease of launch in mind. Our R&D team was especially attentive to performance of the Charger during take-off, as well as, how well it flares while landing. You'll look like a pro with its no-hassle launch characteristics that will have you airborne immediately after inflation. You will be amazed at well it stays above you without a tendency to collapse or wander off course. Even in nil wind conditions, you can trust the Charger to make your landings safe and predictable. During extended flights, the light-to-moderate brake pressure allows for pleasant turns while progressively increasing toward the end of brake travel, providing a reserve of safety.

 

Why the great performance?

The glider is undemanding and resistant to collapse even in rough air thanks to the customized reflex airfoils. Much attention went into the design of the Charger's airfoil, resulting in exceptional penetration and in flight stability. The smooth shape of the airfoil nose is maintained by long lasting Mylar reinforcement combined with new age plastic rods. It features excellent stability throughout the full weight and speed range. The canopy has a dampened roll tendency, but offers good flexibility and agility in turns, and the Charger will not overshoot or hang back.

 

Standard Features add to your Enjoyment

With the serial risers, which include trimmers and speed system, the Charger's speed range can easily be dialed in to meet the pilot's wishes. With trimmers pulled in the Charger's climb is similar to non-reflex paragliders. With trim out, speed and penetration increase significantly. For flights of long duration in full reflex mode the Charger can be comfortably controlled using the wingtip steering handles. They are perfectly placed on the risers and ingeniously designed to mimic the lighter forces of serial brakes.

This is an all around fun glider, perfect for playing in all conditions, with performance to spare!

 

Great attention to details

The Charger comes standardly equipped with ergonomically thin, semi-rigid brake handles, including swivels, neodymium magnets, and soft loop extensions. The risers feature two pulley settings for low or high brakes depending on your paramotor.  Wing tip steering handles are held in position using elastic lines and can be secured to the risers by either neodymium magnets or with press button snaps.

 

Quality you can Trust

The use of high-quality materials and constant quality control throughout the manufacturing process produces high quality products. We use Aramid-Kevlar lines of proven series that guarantee correct geometry of your canopy throughout its life.

You can choose from three serial designs. And if you have different color preferences, you have the luxury of making your own design!

Through the use of high-grade materials along with constant attention to quality control throughout MACPARA'S manufacturing process you are assured of getting a superbly crafted paraglider.

The MACPARA Charger is guaranteed to energize you!

 

 MAC PARA CHARGER
  REVIEW from www.OJOVOLADOR.com

Testpilot: Daniel Crespo V.

Easy reflex paraglider fo paramotor flying

The Czech manufacturer Mac Para has been strong in the paramotor world for years, with multipurpose models for beginners like the Eden series –a free flight wing available with paramotor risers–, more advanced reflex models like the MacJet (which we tested a few years ago), or the amazing T-Ride, the paramotor tandem glider with the best handling we have flown so far. The Charger is their new offer containing all the “know-how” in a beginner-to-progression glider that it is easy to fly and has remarkable performance.

The Charger is a reflex model with thick profiles, aspect ratio of 5.14, 46 cells and high-quality internal construction with extreme care for details. It has diagonal ribs, load bearing system, miniribs, rods in the leading edge and Mylar reinforcements. Certified EN B, it is also a very easy and safe paraglider for free flight. We liked the visual proposal of this paraglider because it is a twist on the classical aesthetic of Mac Para, with stripes and curves added in a three-color design.

The Charger has superb definition, the finishes are impeccable, with clean leading edge free of wrinkles, in addition to an ever tense line of the trailing edge. The canopy design is on a different line, it has personality with a touch between elegant and sportive.

Weight ranges

We tested the Charger in size 28 (113-160 kgs). We flew footlaunched in the middle of the weight range, with total load in flight of 145 Kg. In this configuration the glider is absolutely solid, contained in all its axes, and with very smooth handling. Flying paratrike at the top of the range, loaded with 160 kg, the sense of aplomb remains intact but the wing offers more speed and some improvement in the handling.

School-level inflation

This is one of the strong points of the Charger: even the most novice pilots will manage to control their take-offs after a little practice. Just push the ‘A’ risers without releasing until the wing goes up to the vertical, and if we have been progressive with the throttle, we will not even need to hold the glider as it will stay centered, keeping the pressure and direction. Although it is a fast reflex wing, once the Charger is above the head in the takeoff run we can assist with the brakes to make the run short and easy.

Solid and efficient for covering miles

Safety and solidity stand out over other qualities of the Charger, mainly thanks to its reflex profiles. But it turns out that the profiles design is also efficient in slow mode so it does not require too much engine to take off and stay in level flight. If we open the trimmer and step on the speedbar to the top we will need almost all the power of the engine; at least that was my experience flying on paratrike with a C-Max 175 engine with a total load in flight of 175 kg, which is not bad. Footlaunched flying asks for less throttle, of course.

Minicontrols

The Charger has a couple of mini-controls placed strategically low, almost at the height of the carabiners. These are used when we release the trimmer and put the wing in reflex mode, to steer the glider – instead of using the brakes. It is done this way because the use of the main brakes “deactivate” the reflex, making the glider (any reflex glider) more prone to collapses. They work great, with just a gesture and two to three centimeters of travel, we can keep the course and do minor corrections. At the beginning I thought that they were maybe too low, but after trying them in flight I found them to be very well thought out. For long flights, they are comfortable and effective. As the hands can be kept on a lower position they are less exposed to wind (cold), and it is also better for circulation.

Speed within everyone’s reach

I got very good records for a paraglider aimed at pilots since they begin in the sport: Hands free and with the trimmer in neutral, the Charger goes up to 45 Km/h; if we release trimmers we get close to 52 Km/h. The reflex works perfectly and, together with the design concept of the Charger, it gives great consistency to the glider. When we squeezed the throttle we reached +62 Km/h, a couple of km/h more with the paratrike and with no need to use all the thrust (but almost) of the Cisco C-Max 175 engine we used.

Handling

In terms of piloting, the Charger is really easy to fly and indulgent from the inflation on. It offers mild enough reactions for pilots since entry level. In spite of this it is not a dull wing nor does it lack excitement, as it has plenty of gradations to enjoy smooth and precise turns.

The Charger has progressive control and good touch, although the travel is long making it difficult to over-control. After releasing the brakes the Charger wants to go back to its neutral flying position by itself.

The trimmers are easy to adjust, and the speed system is short, soft and fully usable. If we want to fly fast there are the mini-controls that are very efficient to keep the flight direction. This and the Charger’s qualities of solidity, speed and sink rate, make it a good airship for navigations and strolls.

Ground control is good both doing front or back inflations, as the entire process happens “slowly” and it is easy to understand. The glider is stable on all axes and once over your head it can be controlled with little effort; it does not show any tendency to lag behind or shift to the side so, in general, it is easy to handle – also on paratrike.

Personality

This progression glider boasts a particular design: the canopy has flat arch on the centre, with wingtips that go down sharply on the sides; a design style that offers a wide area of lift and high directional stability. This configuration makes the Charger a very interesting choice for any type of navigation.

Turn and maneuverability

The brake of the Charger is smooth, progressive and very, very long… This glider has a calling for serene leisure flight and puts emphasis on stability and security. Its fluid turn is more “aeronautical” than pendular, drawing wide traces but in a slow and smooth way; zero stress. The more daring pilots may want to take a loop (or two) on the brakes and put some effort on them to achieve more playful turns with a sportive touch. But, definitely, if freestyle is your thing then this paraglider is not for you.

For whom?

This reflex wing is aimed at a wide scope of pilots, since they take up the sport! It is a perfect glider to progress on thanks to its school-level inflation, dampened reactions and high passive safety. Nevertheless, its good speeds and solidity make it also attractive to pilots who are already experienced, and want to go out in navigations and raids at good speeds but without stress.

Conclusion

A paraglider with the accent on safety, the Charger offers bomb-proof reflex stability and solidity. It offers training-level take off behavior and, though the brake travel is long, it also has good handling and flowing turns. The general performance is quite good; on one side, it has good sink rate in slow flight so it does not require much thrust for short takeoffs and navigation at low gas. And on the other hand, it has a remarkable speed range that reaches 62 – 65 km/h. The best of the Charger is its ease of use and the confidence it inspires the pilot.

THE +: EASY, SAFE AND FAST.

THE -: NO INCLINATION FOR SLALOM.

 

 MAC PARA CHARGER
  REVIEW from CROSS COUNTRY

Testpilot: Jeff Goin

Jeff Goin tries out the new Charger, a full reflex wing aimed at newer pilots.

Mac Para’s new Charger adds a unique capability to their lineup. In the realm of pilot desires, it scratches several interesting itches, primarily a desire to go faster with the safety of a reflex and the easier ground handling of a beginner planform. Less common would be for a budding competition pilot.
Tim Kaiser and I flew a 21m2 version in light winds on Top 80 Miniplanes. Warmish light wind gave way to a near calm by sunset, which let us sample various wind conditions. I'm no acro guy so there was nothing fancier than moderate wingovers, slow flight, brief spirals, footdrags, and plain old fashioned play. I tried all the various configurations of trimmers, speedbar and tip steering.
With motor, a sandwich and fuel, my clip- in weight barely passed 95kg giving me a wing loading of about 4.5kg/m2 (10 lbs) which is a bit heavier than most pilots fly.
The glider has all the modern treatments that help with inflation and glide ratio, not that Mac Para gliders really need any help with inflation but small improvements are still appreciated. Having those fancy nylon tube leading edges does mean you’ll want to keep them from getting bent. You can stuff it as usual but don’t use it for a body chair. Most pilots do some form of accordion fold to preserve those rib stiffeners.

Inflation

It was very easy to launch - very easy. Light wind reverses, where backwards walking is needed, were easy. Even after letting it fall back slightly, it would recover overhead nicely once we scored some thrust. Trimmers were set about an inch from full slow.
Walking backwards like this is not a technique I would recommend - forward inflation makes more sense - but we wanted to see how it behaved. It shined. Most wings can be reversed this way, but easier inflators tolerate less finesse. In general, if you can’t kite while standing still, it’s probably better to do a forward.
Mac Para have always shone here which is good for motor pilots who frequently face flat ground, soft sand, and no wind. We all appreciate a wing that pops up smartly when trying to accelerate through the soft, superfine sand that’s endemic on some of Earth’s coolest beach locations. It can be nearly impossible to get a sluggish wing overhead when running in that stuff.
Inflation characteristics are important for mountain flyers but in a different way. Namely, models that inflate nicely in still air tend to overshoot and front tuck in strong winds on hills. Proper technique can easily overcome that, of course, but it’s something to be aware of - the flip side of easy inflations.

Groundhandling

You’ll love the groundhandling. It’s got that beginner-looking chord, thick front to back, that lets even heavy-handed corrections work. If it falls off to one side during inflation you’re more likely to keep it together while bringing it back in line. That’s nice for dealing with confined areas where you may not be able to side step. Higher aspect models tend to stall a tip before obeying your more ardent commands.

Inflight handling

Not surprisingly, given my heavyish loading, handling was pretty spry. A bit more subdued than some of their other models, but light and comfortably responsive, a fun ride. Any pilot who is willing to accept the higher speeds of launch and landing will enjoy the feel.
Tip-steering toggles are well positioned for easy grabbing but it was actually more natural to go for the tip-steering lines themselves. You’ll enjoy the toggles more for cruising around since they’re down at a lower, more comfortable hand position. They’re good for high speed cruising with the trimmers fast or on speedbar but work equally well trimmed slow. In turbulence, most pilots will want to trim slow and use the main brakes but some prefer to set the trimmers fast and let the reflex do its thing. In that case use the tip toggles for steering but always do whatever the pilot manual recommends.
Brake handles employ an adjustable second loop that you can size to your own liking which is nice but make sure it can’t get into your cage. Fabric covered magnets work as brake-keepers
so iron dust isn’t a problem. I like this method the most - snaps were kinda hard to remove and the old-style magnets collected iron dust. The only downside is how they like to stick in the wrong places.
Tip toggles ingeniously incorporate two methods of containment - old fashioned snaps and fabric-coated magnets. Have it your way. If you prefer tip-steering on the lines, leave them snapped to keep everything a bit cleaner.
I did not notice any left-right oscillation, which is saying something because at these heavier loadings oscillation is kind of common. I don’t even mind because corrections are minimal but still, it’s nice to have it mind the line.

Speed

I didn’t get to do a speed test but judging from the ground run it’s gonna be pretty quick for its size. It’s not the fastest but you shouldn’t be trailing the pack, either. As always, avoid using main brakes when fully accelerated. It has effective tip-steering that stays firm without any tendency for the tips to flutter or collapse.
Speaking of ground run, have your shoelaces tied; it’s pretty quick and will benefit from a healthy brake pull to lift off. That’s true of this class; these wings aren’t the big boaty boys of yore - you’ll need to fly it off the ground. Of course this is only if you’re flying it heavy like I did. Otherwise the extra speed will be less pronounced.
Obviously landing will be pretty quick, too, but the upside of high efficiency is that it lets you finesse the flare. I did most of my landings power off and had great fun skimming the ground while bleeding its energy with increasing brake.
I dabbled with heavy brake to see how well I could slow down and pulled quite hard with no tendency of a tip to go back. Any more pulling and I would have wanted to be at an SIV clinic but this was a helpful thing to know.

Final thoughts

Pilots looking for more speed or a good introduction to reflex technology will enjoy this wing. Even if they never go on to compete, it provides a good measure of what flying higher performance rides will be like. At heavier loadings, like any wing really, it would not be ideal as a pilot’s first glider but that’s a question more for the buyer and their instructor.
For those wanting to step into reflex technology without all the skinny wing weirdness that accompanies some of the hotter competition models, this is perfect. Treat it with respect, especially during the honeymoon phase, and you’ll likely enjoy a lasting, satisfying relationship.

TEST - Mac Para Charger
  THERMIK -PARAMOTOR- MAGAZINE

Testpiloten: Franz Altmann, Günther Böcksteiner, Christian Koranda

Mac Para ist mittlerweile auch im Motorschirmbereich ein Vollsortiment- Hersteller. Mit dem neuen Reflex-Einsteiger Charger beschreitet das Team um Peter Recek neue Wege ...

Mac Para har sich in den letzten Jahren auch als Motorschirmher- steller einen sehr guten Namen gemacht. Mit den Freiflugmodellen fliegt der Hersteller aus Tschechien ja seit Jahren stetig im Aufwind und gerade die letzten Produkte wie Muse 3 & 4, Eden 5 und Elan haben schon eine große Fan- gemeinde.
Doch seit vielen Jahren ist Mac Para auch eine Größe im Paramotorbereich. Vor allem in den USA sind die PPG-Gleicschirme aus Roznov pod Radhostem sehr gefragt. Mac Para versteht sich im Motorbereich als Vollsortimenter und bietet neben Hybridmodellen aus dem Freiflug- bereich diverse Reflexmodelle bis hin zu Spezialschirmen für den schweren Trikeeinsatz oder Slalomschirme für den Wettkampfeinsatz an. Mit dem neuen Charger bestreitet man dennoch neue Wege. Waren es im Motorschirm-Einsteigerbereich bisher vorwiegend die Hybridmodelle Muse und Eden, die mit verstärktem Leinensetup und Motortragegurt angeboten wurden, erachtete Konstrukteur und Firmeninhaber Peter Recek die Entwicklung eines Reflexeinsteigers als notwendig: „Gleitschirmfliegen und Motorschirmfliegen driften immer weiter auseinander! Die Leistung der Freiflugmodelle wird immer besser, was in turbulenten Bedingungen nicht günstig für den Motorflug ist. Wer zu 80 % am Berg fliegt und nur hin und wieder den Motor auspackt, für den ist ein Hybridmodell wie Muse 4 oder Eden 5 in Ordnung. Wer sich hingegen mehrheitlich dem motorisierten Gleitschirmfliegen widmet, fährt auch als Einsteiger mit einem speziellen Motorschirm besser. Und genau dafür haben wir den Charger entwickelt.“
Der Charger ist in fünf (!) Größen erhältlich, die mit DGAC homologiert sind. Aufgrund der hohen passiven Sicherheit dieses Modells strebt Mac Para für den Charger mit geschlossenen Trimmern auch eine Freiflug-EN-Einstufung der Kategorie B an. Weiters auch einen Lasttest mit maximal möglicher Belastung, um einen sicheren Einsatz im Trikebetrieb zu dokumentieren.

Konstruktion und Aufbau

Der Charger ist ein völlig neues Konzept mit neuem Profil, lediglich die Grundform erinnert ein wenig an den Freiflugeinsteiger Muse von Mac Para.
Was das Leinenkonzept betrifft, ist der Charger mit vier Leinenebenen aufgebaut, die auch jeweils in einem Tragegurt enden. Zwei kurze E-Leinen spalten sich in der Flügelmitte von der D-Ebene ab und bilden an der Kappe eine (kleine) fünfte Leinenebene. Nur in diesem Bereich findet sich eine Zwischengalerieebene, ansonsten kommt der Charger mit Stammleinen und Topleinen aus.
Designer Peter Recek geht bekanntermaßen auch bei den Freiflugmodellen in Sachen Leinendimensionierung keine Risiken ein, dementsprechend „üppig“ fällt auch die Dimensionierung beim Charger aus. Die meisten Stammleinen (Aramid von Edelrid) haben eine Bruchlast weit jenseits der 200 kg und selbst die Topleinen sind mit 60 und 80 kg mehr als ausreichend dimensioniert (ebenfalls Aramid von Edelrid).
Der Aufbau des 46-Zellers sieht Doppelkammern und Dreifachkammern mit Diagonalrippen vor.
Relativ kurze Kunststoffstäbchen in der Profilnase (teilweise in Kombination mit Mylar), nach hinten versetzte A-Aufhängungen sowie 3D-Shaping in der Profilnase am Obersegel deutet auf modernste Konstruktionskniffe hin. Ausgeklügelt und aufwändig ist auch der Tragegurt ausgefallen. Die relativ langen Gurte haben nur eine Einhängemöglichkeit, die Anpassung an verschieden hohe Aufhängungspunkte des Motorsystems erfolgt über zwei verschieden hohe Bremsumlenkungsrollen.
Der Trimmer hat eine Neutralstellung, die sich mit der Neutralstellung der Tragegurte deckt. Für Thermikeinsätze und gewünschte, langsame Landungen hat der Charger-Pilot noch etwa 3 cm „Negativtrimmer“ zur Verfügung. In der anderen Richtung bringen die knapp 6 cm das Reflexprofil zur Entfaltung.
Je mehr Reflex „aktiviert“ wird, desto härter (und unwirksamer) wird die Bremswirkung über die Bremsen. Hier kommt dann die Wing- tipsteuerung zum Einsatz, die durch ein zusätzliches Gummiband beim Auslassen wieder zu ihrer Magnetbefestigung geführt wird.
Die normale Bremsschlaufe verfugt übrigens über eine zweite Bremsschlaufe, die quasi als Verlängerung und zum „2-Finger-Fliegen“ im

Fullspeedmodus dient. Eine sinnvolle Funktion, besonders wenn der Trimmer geöffnet ist und man beim „Cruisen“ nur den Kontakt zu den Bremsen halten will.
Das Fußbeschleunigungssystem ist kurz bis mittellang ausgeführt und läuft wie üblich über eine doppelte Umlenkung, also zwei Rollen.
Als Tuchmaterial verwendet Mac Para durchgängig Stoff vom französischen Hersteller Por- cher Sport, größtenteils in der Konfiguration Skytex 38 E25A mit 38 g/m2.
Die Verarbeitung ist - wie von Mac Para gewohnt - hervorragend und gibt keinerlei Anlass zu Tadel!

Startverhalten

Das Sortieren der Leinen ist einfach, der Tragegurt ist durch die Wingtipsteuerung etwas aufwendiger als der eines Hybridmotorschirms. Für einen reinen Motorschirmtragegurt ist er hingegen sehr übersichtlich ausgefallen.
Der eigentliche Startvorgang ist überaus einfach und anfängertauglich. In neutraler Trimmerstel- lung steigt die Kappe selbst bei Nullwind sehr zuverlässig und spurtreu. Dieses ausgewogene Startverhalten gibt dem unerfahrenen Piloten zusätzliche Sicherheit. Tendenzen zum seitlichen Ausbrechen, Hängenbleiben oder über- schießen konnten wir nicht feststellen.
Nach einer mittellangen Laufstrecke ist man schnell und sicher in der Luft. Ähnlich perfekt und unkompliziert verhält sich der Charger beim Rückwärtsstart. Kein Zweifel, er ist eine Startmaschine!

Im Flug

Im Flug ist der Charger über alle Achsen gut gedämpft und vermittelt dem Piloten ein sehr sicheres Fluggefühl. Mir geschlossenen Trimmern erreichten wir eine Geschwindigkeit von etwa 40-41 km/h, mit Einsatz des Fußbe- schleunigers legt der Charger bis 52/53 km/h zu. Mit Öffnung der Trimmer auf die maximale Position ergab sich letztendlich eine Höchstgeschwindigkeit von ca. 58 km/h.
Bei einem Testflug bei viel Höhenwind und Groundspeed von teilweise über 90 km/h blieb der Schirm völlig unbeeindruckt und zog stabil und kompakt durch die Luft. In Turbulenzen waren lediglich die von einem Reflexprofil typischen Auf- und Abwärtsbewegungen des Schirms spürbar. Dabei scheint das System Schirm+Pilot+Motor nahezu wie ein Flugzeug kompakt als Ganzes zu reagieren. Zudem Schneider die Kappe durch Turbulenzen richtiggehend „durch“ und neigt kaum zu unangenehmen Anstellwinkelveränderungen.
Im ausgeprägten Reflexmodus lässt sich der Charger perfekt über die Wingtip-Steuerung auf Kurs haken, kleinste Steuerinputs werden sehr direkt umgesetzt.
Beim Kurvenflug mit geschlossenen Trimmern unter entsprechendem Einsatz der Bremsen zeigt sich der Charger auch von einer sehr agilen Seite. Steuerinputs werden sehr direkt und ohne Verzögerung umgesetzt. Man fühlt sich immer eins mit dem Schirm, die Kappe erweckt den Eindruck bei Lastwechseln sehr kompakt über dem Piloten zu stehen, ohne nach vorne oder hinten zu pendeln. So perfekt wie sich der Charger beim Start verhält, so zeigt er sich auch bei der Landung. Bei unserem relativ kleinen Testmodell war die Landegeschwindigkeit der Gewichtsbelastung entsprechend zwar dementsprechend höher, aber sehr fein und exakt ist über die Bremssteuerung ein sauberes Ausflai- ren möglich.

Abstiegshilfe Steilspirale

Die Einleitung der Steilspirale erfolgt relativ schnell, über beide Bremsen ist die Spirale gut zu dosieren. Die Ausleitung erfolgt über mehrere Umdrehungen mit einem kaum spürbaren Aufrichtemoment.

Fazit

Der Charger von Mac Para ist der perfekte Motorschirm für talentierte Motorschirm- Einsteiger, die vom Freiflugbereich kommen und erste Erfahrungen mit einem Reflexprofil sammeln wollen. Aber auch bereits erfahrene Motorschirmpiloten zeigten sich vom Charger aufgrund seiner Einfachheit und Wendigkeit begeistert.
Selbst für reine Fußgänger am Weg zum Motorschirmpiloten (ohne Umweg einer Berg-Gleitschirm-Ausbildung) hat sich der Charger bereits bewährt.
Hervorzuheben sind die tadellosen Start- und Landeeigenschaften, die dem Piloten viel Sicherheit verleihen. Ein weiteres Plus ist das sehr ausgewogene, feine Handling und die hohe Stabilität im flotten Trimm-/Reiseflug.

The Charger is manufactured using the paragliding industries well established lightweight material with excellent durability; Skytex 38, from Porcher Sport (NCV). For the less stressed areas of the sail we use Skytex 38 with E25A coating. For the supporting and diagonal ribs we use Skytex 40 Hard with “hard finish” coating E29A. This gives the advantage of a sail that is both lightweight and very durable.
