Dear Sally,
Sorry for the delay I was away for 6 days with my boys on the coast visiting family.

As for the Karisma:

What a great all round first Paraglider.

I had a great Ridge Soaring Session with the Karisma and had no problem soaring with many much higher performance gliders with No sensation that I was disadvantaged. The handling is very direct with a nice feeling through the brakes. It was super easy to top land in a tight spot with so much Brake travel at its disposal. As for Ground Handling I don't think you could find a glider any easier. With a simple lift of the A's it gradually comes off the ground and stops perfectly over head with little to no tendency to over shoot the pilot. Once over head you can simply adjust direction using the C Risers with a light touch or if you prefer the brakes it was also quite intuitive.

Thanks APCO for outdoing your selves yet again with this perfect tool for the Starting Paraglider pilot and also making it a fun glider for us Instructors. Also love the new colors and logo design.

Cheers
Keith

Hello,

I've received the order last frida. The shipment was really fast (less then 48 hours after you posted it in Israel !), and I thank you for the shipment.

I've tried the wing yesterday in a really very cold winter day. There's a really very big problem with the wing. How could I justify to my students that they need to take lessons to learn to fly?

The wing is so lighter to inflate and inflated so well either in a light wind. Then, it wait the pilot over the head, without collapsing. It's really easy to take of. In flight, it's nice and flies really well. There was no real thermal but the various was indicating I was sometimes climbing a little bit.

The brake lines are a little bit long but when you do one turn around your hand it's reacting very well and progressively. I've tied doing some collapses but it's really opening very easily and fast, either while doing front collapse. But, another really appreciated point, while doing the ears, it stays collapsed as long as the flight is straight. I've also tried the speed system, we feel that the wing has a huge speed range, feeling that it's flying really fast with the speed system for a EN-A wing !
I've also tried the minimal speed and the remotes become really hard, excluding any risk of stalling by mistake. Wings-over are much harder than on the Karma Evo because the wing is also a little bit smoother than the old model.

In approach, it turns well flat without diving, making approach really easy. The landing is really smooth, and the flight can be really slow, making the eggs-landing possible.

So the wing is really fly nicely and properly, the best for a student. But it's quite too easy to fly ! ;-)

It seems to be one step lower the Karma Evo in term of nervosité and possibility to progress in «freestyle», but it gives a huge safety in flight and is really the best for this kind of wing.

So I was joking, don't worry, this wing has no problem, except that it's too easy! Thank you very much for your work while designing and building this wing. The white bottom surface colour gives the image of a smoother wing because colours look more smooth too! But the top surface design is so nice!

For the rescue, I hope I'll not have to check it soon! But the MD bag is nice.

Thank you also for the numbers and for the speed bars!

Thank you very much! All the best!
Mathieu
