Video: The XT16 in New Zealand, with Dave Edwards
The XT16 has now been deployed to all corners of the globe, and pilots everywhere are loving its comparatively easy handling and simple take off and landing. It is flyable in an amazing range of conditions, from no wind to strong wind and everything in between, and even beginner pilots can enjoy using it at safe flying sites.
In New Zealand, Dave Edwards has been enjoying his Bullet 14m for over a year, so Alan Hills handed him a new XT16 to check out and this video is the result. Watch Dave fly the XT16 in a nice coastal breeze, taking full advantage of the progressive handling and solid passive safety.
This video represents the upper limits of what pilots will be doing with the XT16, which is an equally ideal wing for simple sled rides and any type of casual ridge soaring.

Cheers from all the Team, and fly safe.
