GP 14 E/SE VELO

GP 14 E/SE VELO

is the ultimate expression of 13.5 meter FAI racing class – fully flapped and ballasted, combined with everyday usability traits and features.
 
The implementation of highly advanced and efficient +25 kW RESLS - Retractable Electric Self-Launching System, developed in partnership with MGM ComproTM and Rotex ElectricTM, creates very capable package for both skilled pilots participating in gliding competitions on world-level but also for other users, who prefer cross-country or leisure flying.
 
The glider comes in two fuselage sizes – Standard (E) and Slim (SE), and three available battery capacities, to improve versatility. It offers absolutely top shelf performance, matching even gliders of higher classes.
 
The airframe is designed using the latest 3D tools and methods, modelling and moulding is executed exclusively via CNC machines. Uncompromised aerodynamic concept features sophisticated elliptic shaped wings and horizontal tail-plane, as well as the most efficient and span-variable airfoils.
 
The production technology is based on the best carbon-epoxy composite materials commercially available, securing unmatched lightweight and strength of the construction. The glider's structure is also high temperature resistant, which allows to offer a wide range of interesting or custom exterior colour schemes.
 
The safety is enhanced by parachute Ballistic Recovery System (BRS) and crashworthy cockpit with DynafoamTM seat cushioning, all as standard.
 
The comprehensive option list offers wide spread of items to enable individual customization.
