“The MESCAL6 is a real game changer in training! Never before have I been able to tune a glider so perfectly to the skills of my flight students. Simply ingenious!”
How does the Mescal fly?
With the AGILITY SYSTEM you can switch between the two brake line geometries “Comfort-Mode” and “Sport-Mode”. The MESCAL6 reacts differently to brake input:
In “Comfort-Mode” the MESCAL6 is the perfect flight school glider. The brakes accentuate the center of the wing: Brake input is directly applied and the canopy turns flatter – perfect for flights on training slopes and the first mountain flights. Student pilots can concentrate fully on the unknown medium of air.
In “Sport-Mode” the handling becomes more lively and agile. The brakes accentuate the outer wing: the glider banks higher, the control pressure in the effective range is lower and you can optimize your bank angle in every position while turning – experienced pilots fly high wingovers with ease. The conversion between the two modes takes only a few minutes and can easily be done by the pilot without any tools.
Like its predecessor, the MESCAL6 is based on a compact wing shape with an aspect ratio of 4.8 and 38 cells, which is optimal for this class of glider and provides the best flying characteristics. For easy handling, the clearly arranged line setup and the ergonomic risers are color-coded to facilitate pre-launch preparations and inflation in all wind conditions. For big ears, important in training, we have included markings on the split A-risers. Another useful detail is our “ERGO Handles”: The size-adjustable brake handles allow you to adjust them to your personal favorite position. The materials used are very robust and are forgiving if you let the canopy touch the ground.
he MESCAL6 comes equipped with all the latest technologies, placing you at the cutting-edge right from the start. All five sizes are certified in the LTF /EN A category – whether you are flying in “Comfort-” or “Sport-Mode”.
Adaptive system that allows you to convert between two brake line geometries – “Comfort-Mode” and “Sport-Mode”.
Our JET FLAPS extend the green arc as you approach the stall point, which substantially increases safety and also improves climb performance.
A precise calculation of the leading edge geometry and the installation of an additional strip of fabric reduce wrinkling in this sensitive part of the glider. Advantages: exact wing shape, more performance.
C-wires are nylon wires sewn into the glider over the anchor points of the C-level lines. Advantages: better load distribution, reduced drag, more performance.
Doubling the number of cells at the trailing edge increases its shape stability substantially. Advantage: fewer vortices improve the aerodynamics and with it the performance.
Together with a corresponding wing design, the shark nose technology improves pressure distribution in the canopy substantially. Advantages: much more solid flying feeling and substantial performance gain, especially when gliding on bar.
AUTOMATIC SAND RELEASE SYSTEM
Porous openings of the profile ribs at the trailing edge ensure that sand and dirt in the glider are automatically guided to the wingtip where they can trickle out. This helps preserve the material and “relieves” the trailing edge.
The Rigid Foil nylon wires on the leading edge help maintain its shape and ensure constant ram air pressure. Advantages: better takeoff behavior, more performance and lower canopy weight.
