Icaro Orbiter



Orbiter

The Orbiter is the evolution of the succesful Easy.
Designed by Manfred Ruhmer, while Angelo Crapanzano has made a perfect sail
The new advanced intermediate glider is a mid-point between the Easy and the mastR. It has the same frame of the Easy, a new sailcut design, a bit more doublesurface and a new colour pattern.
Handling is very good and predictable as always but it has definitively better performances (especially at speed) than the Easy.

It's the right choice for the pilots:

Who like better a light, stable and easy to handle glider.
Who doesn't need a competition glider to fly around during his free time, but still wants good performances.
