Mac Para Illusion Conclusion

Mac Para Illusion Conclusion

Both optically and emotionally, the Illusion is most what is widely known as an intermediate paraglider. It has a calm, confidence-inspiring feeleing in flight, but is nevertheless not insensitive and has a refreshingly smooth, precise and responsive handling which does not allow any criticism. Regarding the performance the Illusion feels convincingly. In addition, with weight of 4.6 kg it was the lightest glider in the test field. This predeterminate the wing for adventures away from cableway or road.

Illusion 28 - Jürgen Karthe

Illusion 28 - Jürgen Karthe

Der Illusion ist als Erstschirm nach der Ausbildung sehr gut geeignet! Hier dürfte der Illusion Piloten ansprechen, welche erste Erfahrungen mit dem Thermikfliegen machen wollen. Der Schirm ist erstklassig zu starten und vermittelt fortan ein gutes, sattes und unkompliziertes Fluggefühl. Ungewollte dynamische Flugmanöver sind nahezu ausgeschlossen und bedürfen kraftaufwendiger Eingriffe oder sehr groben Störungen. Die Kalotte ist sehr klappresistent. Härterer Turbulenzen werden sehr gut ausgeglichen, aber gleichermaßen auch deutlich angezeigt, indem Rückmeldungen am Tragegurt erfolgen. Jedoch ist die Ausgeprägtheit der moderat abgedämpften Schläge sehr pilotenfreundlich und erhöhen das Sicherheitsgefühl immens.
