After laborious research work and extensive testing we are very
pleased with our results - winglets for the Standard Libelle, Club Libelle and Hornet
They are not only a looker but improve the sailplane's
flight characteristics in the following ways:
- The minimum speed is lower
- The directional control is better
- The stall behaviour is straight flight and in a banked turn
is more docile
- The aileron response is improved even during the take-off
and landing run
We offer this winglet retrofit kit for Standard Libelle,
Club Libelle and Hornet in high Streifeneder quality.
The winglets, which are constructed from carbon fibre
reinforced plastic and only slightly heavier than the original wing tips, have a robust
connection to the wing.
They are rigged in seconds and secured in place by a spring
loaded pin. There are no loose parts. The original wing tips may still used.
Certainly we can take also take up this modification.
