Paramania Revo2 Test Review from Paramotor Magazine

World renowned Paramotor Magazine recently published a review of the Paramania Revo2 conducted by Bob Drury. Through Paramania we have some highlights taken from his article. PM link here

 

PARAMANIA’S DESCRIPTION OF THE REVO2

The next generation of beginner reflex wing that feels like an intermediate but revo2, paramania revo 2, revo 2with EN B certification. With EN B certification the Revo2 is the first true reflex glider to bridge the vital gap of a wing that a pilot can easily learn to fly on and that first favourite glider that allows safe, fun and versatile pilot progression over several years.

DESIGN BRIEF

To create a wing with better performance and overall usability with everything we had learned since the Revo1. We really wanted something that could be used by a wide range of pilots and especially able to be used in the schools.

 

Paramotor Magazine : Bobs feedback on the wing.


ON THE GROUND

If you had any reservations about joining the reflex revolution because they are harder to launch, then the Revo2 will quash those fears. Pull on the Revo2’s As, and those big cell openings gulp in the air and fill the wing beautifully. I spent some time playing on the ground with the Revo2 in reverse. I was really surprised to find it as agile and controllable on the ground as a non-reflex paraglider, reacting well to control with either the Ds or the brakes.

Forward launching the Revo2 is one of the easiest experiences I’ve come across. Considering how off-putting launching a paramotor can be to new pilots, this is a real plus. I was launching it in nil wind at neutral trim, a little more than Paramania suggest is ideal for launching, and getting fast and pressured launches every time. Pulling the trimmers on, into the position Paramania suggest, is ideal for launching, and the whole process slowed down even further. Basically, if you can walk forward with your hands held high you should be able to get off the ground on the Revo2 every time.

revo2, paramania revo 2, revo 2IN THE AIR

In the air the Revo2 feels compact and solid. Flying the 26 at 125kg (it goes 80-185kg) in thermic air I was being bounced around quite a bit with the wing pitching and moving about a lot at the neutral trim I’d climbed out at. Letting the trimmers off to compensate, the Revo2 solidified like concrete setting. Add the bar and suddenly I was charging. The Revo2 is a fantastic insight into how reflex technology works. I’ve only ever had this kind of true reflex experience on much higher-level wings.

Mixing the tip braking system with the main brakes produces a much sweeter turn. But using both is complicated as a beginner. Again, that’s where the Revo2 has great mileage. You could learn on this wing and never touch the tip braking for the first year, then, as your confidence grows, start introducing it to your low level flying and high speed cruising. Suddenly, just when you were thinking you’d need to upgrade, you’d have a wing that would last you another year or more.

Landing is as easy as taking off. There’s plenty of flare without too much energy converting to lift.
