Barretina Hyper Lite 3

Flat area =  27.00 m2  290.7 ft2, Flat span =  12.36 m    40.6 ft, Flat A/R =  5.66
Ribs number =  40, Cells number =  39, Closed cells 7
Projected area =  23.22 m2  249.9 ft2, Projected span =   9.93 m    32.6 ft
Projected A/R =  4.25. Flattening =    .14, Finesse GR   8.50 (planned), Total height hcp  757.14
Special characteristics: progressive rotation of the profiles in the planform between 0º and 10º (non-parallel profiles).
Several flights made in mono and Bi. Interesting results, but the modifications made no longer allow the prototype to be used stably.
It would be necessary to make a new prototype, introducing some changes

March 2017

Note 1: "changes en profil"  Ceci est la partie la plus difficile. Le profil original était trop plat.  Pour modifier le profil sans avoir à changer toute l'aile... j'ai calculé petits allongements en lignes des triangles B et C, et donc le profil a plus de courbure.  Adrenaline a construit des
 nouvelles lignes! :)

Note 2: "changes de calage" j'ai des élévateurs spéciaux (j'appelle "les jaunes") avec un ajustement de +-15 cm pour chaque élévateur B,C,D. On peux faire donc de nombreux tests et trouver le calage idéal.

Return to BHL3-X project

LAB NOTE: Build a paraglider at home is a very complicated task , and requires many hours of work. Previous experience is required, and very inventive. As always remember that: The free flight implies risks that can only be known and they can be controled with a suitable formation on the part of a recognized school. Not test wings without knowing their functioning. The construction and test of experimental wings without certifying requires deep knowledge of what is being made.
