The Charger 2 is a full-blooded reflex paramotoring glider. New, seasoned and experienced pilots alike will immediately feel comfortable flying the Charger 2 and appreciate its incredibly easy launching and landing characteristics, superb stability and excellent cruising speed. These qualities made the Chargers famous and thus form a reputation of exceptional gliders in the world of powered paragliding.
The Charger 2 is the ultimate 'pilot friendly' paramotor wing. On the ground and in the air, the Charger 2 is easy to operate. Its easy operation and safety will be appreciated by a demanding pilot who is looking for a stable motor glider with a large range of speeds, resistant to canopy collapses, immediately responding to control commands. It will quickly fit into your hands during the first flights. With this glider you will enjoy the pleasures of flying. 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.
The Charger 2, 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 2 during take-off. You'll look like a pro with its no-hassle launch characteristics that will have you airborne immediately after inflation. The way of inflating the canopy is smooth with a quick liftink. The canopy stays over pilots head, with no tendency to pitch forvard or fall back. The buoyancy level is pleasant to read in the harness with acceleration and can be easily controlled by the steering lines. A light pull on the steering lines gets the pilot into the third dimension without sinking down.
The glider is undemanding and resistant to collapse even in rough air thanks to the customized reflex airfoils. New design of the Charger 2's airfoil is resulting in exceptional penetration and in flight stability. The smooth shape of the airfoil nose is maintained by long lasting Mylar reinforcement combined with 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 2 will not overshoot or hang back. During extended flights, the moderate brake pressure allows for pleasant turns while progressively increasing toward the end of brake travel, providing a reserve of safety. With fully released trims, the steering forces increase significantly. With such trimmer settings, the glider can be controlled via the glider's stabilizers using additional wing tip steering toggles (called WTST). Likewise, when using the speed system, or in combination with released trimmers, this way of controlling the direction of flight is a great advantage. Even in nil wind conditions, you can trust the Charger 2 to make your landings safe and predictable. The landing flare is pleasantly definable. While losing speed, soft landings are easy to perform as the canopy creates ample buoyancy when making the final pull.
Charger 2 is another quality product from MAC PARA. The elliptical canopy has 50 cells and an aspekt ratio of 5.22.
The construction of the diagonal ribs and load-bearing straps is transmitting forces from the lines, keep the canopy surface clean and give the wing stability. The glider is light thanks to lighter materials. The weight of the medium size, including the sophisticated risers with stainless steel trimmer clips is 5.5 kg. This is an all around fun glider, perfect for playing in all conditions, with performance to spare!
With the serial risers, which include trimmers and speed system, the Charger 2's speed range can easily be dialed in to meet the pilot's wishes. With trimmers pulled in the Charger 2'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 2 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.
The Charger 2 comes standardly equipped with ergonomically thin, semi-rigid brake handles, including swivels, each with two neodymium magnets, which makes it easier to attach the steering handles to the D straps during flight. 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. There are small self-cleaning canopy holes on the stabilizers.
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. Thanks to their flight characteristics and popularity among pilots, the Chargers retain a high utility value and, in the event of a sale, a high economic value.
You can choose from three serial designs. And if you have different color preferences, below you have the luxury of creating your own design! However, a special design comes at an additional cost and colors are limited by the availability of fabrics.
Through the use of high-grade materials along with constant attention to quality control throughout MAC PARA'S manufacturing process you are assured of getting a superbly crafted paraglider.
The MAC PARA Charger 2 is guaranteed to energize you!

The Charger 2 is manufactured using the paragliding industries well established lightweight materials with excellent durability. Skytex 32 HF and Skytex 40 HF are used for profiles and diagonal ribs. Skytex 38 Universal is used for upper surface and LE on lower surface. Skytex 32 Universal is used for bottom main surface. This gives the advantage of a sail that is both lightweight and very durable.
