NRG XC II

The ONE

For detailed comparison between NRG PRO II and NRG XC II, see the Q&A below.

NRG XC was designed on the foundations of the NRG PRO. It has the same advantages of a professional slalom racing wing in a XC oriented package!

It is a small, safe wing that allows fast flying for cross country ventures, expanding the possibilities for any experienced pilot.

NRG XC II– is a second generation of NRG XC, improved in all parameters of the wing.

One of the main upgrades we made was incorporation of the ABS® – Automatic Balance System – Industry first, pioneered by APCO.

Following the market feedback from Force II about ABS®, it was the natural next step for NRG XC. It improved the wing dramatically, shaping it as an even better XC oriented wing and polarizing the difference between flying at trim speed and accelerated flight.

At trim speed – always restless, super agile, fast wing with quick responses and incredible flying rush.

At accelerated flight the ABS® system comes into play automatically – generating a stable, efficient cross country machine.

ABS® is a system which automatically and gradually pulls down the tip steering as you release the trimmers and push the speed bar. This action stabilizes the wing , cancelling roll movement, “planting” the pilot under the center of the canopy.

This outstanding roll stability gives the pilot the best and most efficient flying path at high speeds! It is on cross country flights or when chasing down a friend that the ABS® system comes into play.

The ABS® system will get you from point A to B in the fastest way possible with no pilot input.

On trim speed, the system is not activated, allowing dynamic flight tuned for thrill and agility as should be with a true slalom racing wing.

With the ABS® tip steering handles together with the main 2D brakes in hand your every touch will be rewarded with an energetic and precise response , satisfying even the most demanding pilots!

Additional difference between the XC and the PRO is the line set. TheNRG XC II uses sheathed lines for improved durability on harsh take-off surfaces. Top lines are are life-time warrantied, embedded hook-in points EHP® for improved aerodynamics.

The SRS® system will come into play whenever the pilot makes an error that causes stall behavior. It will automatically protect the pilot by lowering the angle of attack if the wing goes into a stall/parachutal/spin.
We have recently received warm praise from a pilot noticing how the SRS® saved him from stall/spin situation when exiting a spiral incorrectly.

Materials

The wing uses the same long lasting cloth and fully sheathed durable lines as on previous APCO wings. This is to guarantee its integrity for entire expanded lifespan of the wing. Nevertheless we made maximum effort to reduce the weight of the wing thanks to advanced solutions applied.

APCO is traditionally known for using materials and building techniques which offer double and triple lifespan over the expected. The glider is made from tear resistant Ripstop Nylon cloth, which is P.U. coated to zero porosity and then siliconized to give the fabric high resistance to the elements. Different cloth is used for the top, bottom and ribs due to their different functions.

The lines are made of superaramid covered with a polyester sheath for protection against UV, wear and abrasion.
The bottom section of the brake lines is made of Polyester because of its better mechanical properties. The Karabiners that attach the lines to the risers are made of stainless steel.

Difference between Force II and NRG XC II ??

If you are looking for a high speed more agile option you should go with the NRG XC II. Otherwise you should go with the Force II.
Force 2 is similar to the NRG XC but larger and with lower speed for take off and landing.

Difference between NRG PRO 2 and NRG PRO 1??

The Pro 2 is a much more agile and quick wing then the Pro1.
It is also faster in transition from trim speed to accelerated and back to trim speed – like in pylon racing.
In general, we have made a bigger difference between the NRG XC to the NRG PRO.}
The NRG XC II is now with ABS and more XC oriented then it used to be and the PRO is a racier wing.
The NRG PRO II too is faster than the PRO, but this is mainly due to the higher Anhedral (Arc) !

OAA - what should be the trimmer settings?

From the Manual “In order to engage the OAA one must detach the brummel hooks connected to the rear risers below the trimmers. Prior to using the speed system one must move the trimmers to the neutral position (all risers level). To disengage the OAA one must reattach the brummel hooks on the rear riser. When operating the speed system with the OAA disengaged one must release the trimmers open before activating the speed system.”

Basically when using OAA the trimmers should be at zero position and not opened completely.

The OAA brummel hooks can be managed in the air, just recommended not to adjust close the ground – pay attention that you have enough altitude (to avoid obstacles and have the time to react for engine failure etc.)
