The UP Misti is an acro wing with excellent manoeuvrability and usable energy. This glider suits most pilots. In a big size, this wing is ideal for pilots entering the acro flying world, and smaller sizes will capture the heart of advanced pilots. This is a durable product that pilots love to fly.
Predictable behaviour: Similar to cross-country gliders, acro gliders must fly consistently and have predictable behaviour. The UP Misti makes progressing in acrobatics safer. The backfly is very easy and creates a clean controllable backward motion if flown with freebrakes and hands wide open. The aggressiveness is damped, especially if flown around 4 kg/sqm, and stays very manageable even above 6 kg/sqm - precise brake travel and pressure feedback help keep control of the wing
Ideal amount of energy: The correct amount of energy is essential to fly acrobatic tricks and to feel the fun factor of a glider in this category. With the UP Misti, UP focused on packing the maximum energy so pilots can choose the fun factor depending on how heavy they fly the glider. If you plan to start Rythmic SAT training, the UP Misti is suitable to fly around 4,25 kg/sqm. At this flat-area loading, you can master all tricks; there will be enough energy while keeping a high safety margin. If you want to go hard and have energy for tricks like a Superstall to Infinity tumbling, you want to be towards 6 kg/sqm on the Misti.
Optimal brake pressure and travel: The brake pressure is one of the essential characteristics of an acro glider. If the pressure is too heavy, some tricks are hard to pull, which puts stress on the tendons and muscles. On the other hand, if the brake pressure is too soft, it can be tough to feel the glider and execute negative tricks cleanly. The UP Misti sits in the middle between heavy and soft, slightly on the softer side, to get as close to perfect as possible. Shorter travel with pressure on the lighter side will give you precise control and several hours of pleasurable flying.
Simple and robust: The construction of UP Misti follows the highest standards: reinforced leading-edge taped up between cells, tension straps on all cascades, specially angled attachment points, and the strongest line material available. Made for hundreds of hours of heavy use.
Depending on your level and preferred style of use, you have to get the correct size of your glider. Contact us to discuss your needs.
