As owners of a busy paramotor school, we are always searching for the best gear we can find to share the gift of flight safely with our students.
Over the past few months we have been training with the new shark nosed Dudek Nemo XX and have found it to be an incredibly solid beginner wing. It holds true to what we're most looking for in beginner gliders... Simple, straight forward launches with minimal effort; graceful controls, and as much inherent safety built in as possible.
Since switching our school over to this wing as our primary trainer we have been blown away by the increased percentage of successful student launches (with the vast majority of those in nil wind and from tall wet grass)! Even with no wind, inflation is uniform and balanced and the glider locks in overhead and stays there with very little forward movement required of the pilot, while in higher winds, there is less of a front tuck tendency even when dampening isn’t properly applied.
In flight, with trimmers in, the Nemo XX behaves as you would expect from a modern EN-A wing. The glider is very stable, brake pressure is light to moderate, and it takes a longer pull on the toggles to achieve the same response as a shorter pull would on an EN-B/C glider. Turns are flat and brakes need to be pulled well below the shoulder (low hook-in machine) to get it into a spiral. Trimmers full out, these wings are very fun! Brake pressure increases to the high side of moderate and a spiral turn can be achieved easily with brake toggles at shoulder level with very little initial dive tendency. Of course, energy must be managed coming out of any steep turn or the wing will reach a high angle of attack like all gliders do.
The Nemo XX has a three riser system making it both more efficient, and easier to clear the lines when compared to a more traditional 4-riser set-up, the glider comes in a 4 amazing looking color schemes, and it is offered at a very affordable price for a state-of-the-art wing.
We highly recommend the NEMO XX for the beginner pilot who is looking for a modern glider, under which they can achieve a high rate of launch success, with tons of passive safety, but the capability as they gain experience to spice things up with absolute confidence.
