The Sting PowerPlay
The first product which can be presented under the POWERPLAY brand is the STING, based on the SWING ARCUS. With its very broad weight range and its two certifications (DULV/German Ultralight Association and DHV 1/1-2), the STING is designed for paramotor pilots who would also like to enjoy free flight without having to get a second wing. The unique riser system (see illustration) means that the STING can be optimally fitted to any motor and no adjustment is necessary for free flight. The trimmer allows cruise speed to be increased to approx. 45 km/h and the counter-torque to be compensated without troublesome counter-braking. ARCUS – pilots can of course equip their wing (sizes M, L and XL only) with the new STING – riser.
The STING's launch behaviour is very easy and it has excellent performance with high passive safety and pleasant handling for situations ranging from training to cross-country or distance flying. So the STING is well-suited for beginners and safety-conscious social pilots who are looking for a reliable glider which will ensure that even nil-wind launches from the flat are not a nightmare. The four certified sizes cover a take-off weight range from 80-250 kg which means that even tandem trike-flying is possible with the STING. The STING can be supplied with either the POWERPLAY standard back-pack or with the POWERPLAY stuff sack (see Accessories). Like the current SWING gliders, the STING is also made from the high-quality and durable fabrics Perseverance PN6 and Toray WT7.
