Stardust

Beginner glider from

Axis

 Stardust Paraglider

It offers a high passive safety while having good performance for a glider in this class. 


High stability
Great performance
Easy take-off
Easy handling
Fun to fly!

High quality at a low price:  $2,600.00 !

The Stardust is the motorized version of the Compact II from Axis. 

It is made with thicker lines and a reinforced structure, so it can fly a heavier trike as well as a paramotor.

The canopy is designed to optimize the uplift pressures whilst the specially designed profile minimizes oscillation in flight & provides high stability in turbulence.


Optimizing the amount of lines and using different diameters significantly reduces frontal resistance, subsequently increasing the wing's performance with no effect on the safety. 
                          
Lines of different diameters are used which reduce frontal resistance.  This increases the gliders performance with no loss of safety.

Reinforcement on the leading edge make it easy to launch.

The weight of the glider has been reduced by using more advanced materials which further improves its passive safety.

Split A-risers allow for easier identification of lines for big ears.


Comes with:
1 Stuff bag;
1 Inner bag;
1 Risers bag;
1 Belt
1 Manual;
1 T-shirt.

 



The canopy is manufactured from 'water repellent' Skytex S 9017, which has a high UV reflectivity and excellent resistance to abrasion.

The lines are a very new material Liros PPSL, with a core of Dyneema which offers minimal stretching and much higher durability.

The lines are secured in place on the maillons by plastic inserts.
