IOTA 2 – Efficient Perfomance

What is your cross country dream? To manage your first 200 kms? To land in front of your house after a long day’s flying, or just set off and see how far you can get? The IOTA 2 offers you all of the most important ingredients for these achievements: efficient performance and relaxed piloting in all conditions. The latest technology gives the wing an outstanding polar curve for its class.

Available Performance

In terms of performance together with safety the IOTA series is the most balanced of the ADVANCE glider selection. The IOTA 2 is especially impressive in accelerated flight with its outstanding glide, high degree of turbulence absorption and manageable extreme flight characteristics. Concern-free accelerated flying becomes the rule, with no exception – not least because of the C-Handle provision: flight control by C/B-risers

High Efficiency

IOTA 2 shows its high level of efficiency not only when gliding through bumpy air. Its pitch and directional stability also benefits the pilot when thermalling. The canopy stays in the centre of rising air almost as if by itself – without requiring large corrections. Brake line inputs are directly and precisely answered; response is smooth, progressive and logical over the whole control range. This not only saves energy, but makes thermal flying particularly straightforward.

Advance Technology

The IOTA 2 merges SIGMA 10 development performance-enhancing technologies with B-Class safety requirements. The Performance-Intermediate boasts a state-of-the-art profile, and perfectly distributed canopy tensioning to go with it. Mini-Ribs, C-Wires, double-3D Diamond-Shaping and Sliced Diagonals are further ingredients of this hi-tec cocktail.

 

Technology

 

 

Double 3D-Diamond Shaping

Advancve Iota 2 3D Diamond Shaping

A diagonal perspective in the two-fold 3D shaping computations works to counteract seam-gathering (ruching) and the effects of the vertical forces across the profile. This achieves an even smoother canopy surface at the leading edge.

 

State-of-the-art all round

Invisible Essentials

 

Advance Iota 2 Invisible Essentials

In the IOTA 2 the invisible performance factors – such as profile and canopy tension distribution – have been radically reengineered. Higher levels of pitch and directional stability result.

 

Pitch Control Handles

 

Advance Iota 2 Pitch control handles

The IOTA 2 introduces so-called C-Handles on an IOTA’s risers. This allows the accelerated glider to be actively controlled and steered by C and B levels instead of by speedbar and weight shift.
