P-light

P-light padalo vedno bolj osvaja srca hike&fly pilotov. 2,6 kg težko padalo poseduje tehnologije, ki smo jih pri 777 zrisali za vsa naša padala ter s tem prinaša inovativnost v mini krila. Večini dobro znan pilot, bivši evropski prvak Yaseen Savov, je zbral skupaj nekaj besed o njegovem padalu ter jih delil z nami:

Hello,

After the comp here in Réunion Island, this morning we went for a nice hike-and-fly session in the Jurassic Park backcountry terrain of Reunion Island. So I had the chance to test my new toy - P-Light 17. I made a descent of about 1500m, including about 10min of thermaling and some small wingovers at the end. Also, there were places with quite high turbulence. So overall quite good testing conditions.

To set the background, I should say that for more than a year now I've been looking for a wing not heavier than this (2.6kg), yet with good enough performance, speed, and penetration, and also solid enough to fly without a rescue and back protection. Until now I had not found any manufacturer offering such a wing on the market.

Then the P-Light came, and the P-Light was Right!Smile

Shark nose for more stability, three-liner and few lines for good performance, super stable (but note that with all that energy it moves quite a lot, in turbulence making some sharp pitching movements forward, and so I think it requires a decent level and amount of active piloting), super playful and direct handling, and, at only 2.6kg, super versatile!! It also has normal webbing skinny risers, not dyneema skinny ones, so that's quite user-friendly on the takeoff.

Very importantly, it has trimmers. In neutral position I guess speed is somewhere around 45km/h. From that position you can pull for thermaling (seem to work quite well) or release on glide for even higher speed and penetration, or maybe for skiing too. The trimmer travel is not extreme, but enough for me. If you want to push more speed, better use the speed system - but I have not tested that much, so can't comment on it yet.

I could actually compare the glide during a smooth top-to-bottom back home in Bulgaria - to a friend's Gradient ENB wing, I think Golden or something like that, some model from maybe 5 years ago, I guess. So compared to that quite typical ENB glider, after about a 5km glide I lost about 100-150m to him, while my speed was about 5-6km/h higher. So not bad at all for such a small and light wing.

After the flight today I was ecstatic, shouting with joy, because I knew that I had found my long-expected baby! Oh, yes, I have!! And soon the snow is coming, so looking forward to mix it up with skiing and also ski-touring! All the possibilities!!Smile)

Even with very little experience on it, maybe you can see how excited I am about it! hehe! I hope Valic brothers sell a lot of it; they deserve it, after making my dream a reality!Smile Good job, brothers!! I'm impressed.

p.s. I was flying about 88kg total, and I'm really glad I chose the size 17 - because 17 or 19 was quite a dilemma for me. Thermaling on this size is not as bad as I thought it would be - it's even quite pleasant, playful, and even effective - good surprise! Oh, and the turning radius with such a small wing is quite funny - you turn tight as a ballerina.

p.s.2 One slightly annoying detail for me at least was the high number of pieces of fabric they used for making the canopy. I would have preferred less pieces and details in the colour design - that would mean less stitching, less work to make it, so a little lower manufacturing price, therefore maybe a little lower consumer price. Maybe even the weight would drop by 50g or something. Anyway, this is not important at all, just a small suggestion for slight refinement, I guess.

Looking forward for more and more time with my little baby! Cheers!

Živjo Andrej, seveda, smo se potrudili in naredili še prevod.


Pozdravljeni,

Po tekmovanju tukaj na otoku Reunion, sem to jutro šel na lep hike&fly v bolj divji del tega otoka. Tako sem imel možnost stestirat mojo novo igračo, P-light 17 m2. Naredil sem spust z višinsko razliko okoli 1500m, kjer sem vmes tudi vrtel termiko ter si na koncu privoščil še nekaj wingoverjev. Vmes je bilo tudi kar nekaj turbulence, tako da sem imel kar dobre testne pogoje.

Da razložim malo ozadja lahko povem, da sem do sedaj več kot eno leto iskal primerno krilo, ki ne bi bilo težje od 2,6 kg in bi imelo še vedno dobre performance, hitrost in zmožnost dobrega prebijanja v veter. Do sedaj mi ni uspelo najti niti enega proizvajalca, kateri bi ponudil ta paket.

Nato je prišel P-light. In ta je bil pravi.

Shark nose za večjo stabilnost, tri liner in malo vrvic za dobro performanso, super stabilno (z omembo da ima padalo ogromno energije, zato se veliko giba v turbulenci in se lahko pomika naprej. To zahteva malo večjo stopnjo znanja aktivnega letenja), zelo igriv in direkten handling in samo 2,6 kg. Super raznoliko.

Zelo pomembno, ima trimerje. V nevtralni poziciji je hitrost nekje okrog 45 km/h. S te pozicije lahko vrtiš termiko (zgleda da deluje zelo dobro), ali pa spustiš trimerje do konca in tako lahko brez težav porineš v veter, mislim pa da bi prišlo prav celo za letenje s smučkami.
Hod trima ni tako ekstremen, ampak dovolj za moje potrebe. Če hočeš doseči hitrost lahko uporabiš še speed sistem. Sam ga nisem veliko sprobal, tako da o tem ne morem preveč komentirati.

Imel sem možnost primerjanja z padalom Gradient EN B razreda, starega verjetno kakih 5 let. Torej pri primerjavi z zelo tipičnim B padalom sem na 5km dolgem letu izgubil približno 100 do 150 m, medtem ko je bila moja hitrost 5-6 km/hh hitrejša od njega. Torej, sploh ni slabo za tako majhno in lahko padalo.

Po tem letu sem bil zelo zadovoljen, kričal od veselja, zato ker mi je končno uspelo najti, kar sem iskal že dolgo. O ja, imam ga! Sedaj prihaja kmalu sneg, tako da se že veselim kako bom povezal to padalo še s smučarijo. Veliko možnosti 

Kljub zelo malo izkušnjam s tem padalom, lahko vidite kako vesel sem tega padala.  Upam da bosta brata Valič uspela prodati veliko teh padal, to si zaslužita, potem ko sta realizirala moje sanje. Čestitke za dobro delo, brata! Sem navdušen.

p.s.: Letel sem na približno 88 kg in sem zelo vesel, da sem izbral 17 m2 verzijo, namreč izbira med 17 in 19 je bila za mene kar velika dilema.
Pobiranje termike na 17ki ni tako slabo kot sem se bal da bo, je celo zabavno in efektivno. Veliko presenečenje. In zavoji s tako majhnim padalom so zelo zabavni, vrtiš kot balerina.

p.s.2: En detajl, ki me moti je da so uporabili tako veliko število različnih panelov za šivanje padala. Jaz be želel manj kosov in detajlov v barvni shemi. To bi pomenilo manj šivov, manj dela, zato tudi manjšoi ceno. Mogoče bi celo teža padla za dodatnih 50g. Vseeno, ni tako pomembno, samo majhen predlog za dodelavo padala.

Komaj čakam, da bom doživel še več uric v zraku z mojo novo igračo.
