(made in 1978)
The Spectrum (released same day as Superscorpion) is a sporty machine designed to put the fun back into flying . The glider complies with FAI Class 1 Competition regulations. Although an intermediate with a conservative 105 deg nose angle, it generates a lot of lift and will give the high performance ships a good run for their money.
The quality of handling is one of the Spectrum's biggest bonuses. Its turning ability is second to none and 360's are self balancing. Pitch is light and very high speeds are attainable. It also has a low stall speed facilitating top landings in light winds. The Spectrum is supplied in small and large sizes.
