The exact same wing as the blend with our custom x-ply used on the panels which takes a large percentage of the loading adding another level of dynamic to the blend model.
After testing many prototypes with x-ply, even full x-ply, we discovered using 100% x-ply on our canopy didn’t create the feeling we wanted. For one thing it’s heavy, it also gave us a very jerky kind of power which didn’t feel right.
Introducing our thin custom x-ply to the panels nearest to the strut takes the major loading/ stretch & gave us the feeling of direct power we always wanted while being light weight. The x-blend is still a very light weight wing, just with some added power of the x-ply material. The weights of the blend & x-blend are virtually the same.
Our custom x-ply can be folded up & thrown into our bags & no risk of splitting!
