THE CHARACTERISTICS:

Stable and forgiving in the Rhythmic – Infinity and Anti-rhythmic manoeuvres, which are performed by the NIKITA 5 roundly, harmonically and without any hard blows. Short steering ways enable fast changes from one maneuver to the next.

At all Helicopter-transition maneuvers, the wing turns willingly without remaining hanging. The NIKITA 5 stays extremely stable in Helicopter and only needs to be corrected slightly. The rotation speed in Helicopter is fast and thanks to the new valves in the cross ports a Twister can be induced by the pilot in seconds. The brake pressure is medium-hard, very precise and very noticeable when cutting off. This enables the pilot to induce a purposefully and abrupt stall. New-school-maneuvers like Misty-Reverse, Joker, Cork Screw etc… were never so easy to fly.

THE LOOK

Extracts of the Edelweiß-logo decorate the NIKITA 5 – selected according to the special glider characteristics and your demand to leave a lasting impression in the sky.
