Speed – Efficiency – Stability

 

RPM is our latest Cross Country full reflex wing. Extremely efficient and stable, especially at extreme configurations. The RPM is Flow’s revolutionary new intermediate|Advanced ppg wing.

 

RPM is a purebred XC paramotor wing with a designed focus on 3 key aspects:

  • Speed
  • Stability
  • efficiency

 

Those 3 key design aspects of the RPM are working in harmony side by side.

 

A glider made to cover big kms in the fastest and most efficient way. Offering an extremely comfortable experience and safety assurance due to the stability of our “full reflex efficient profile”.

RPM is extremely efficient and it can flown 2 to 3m2 smaller than your traditional ppg glider.

 

It delivers an easy inflation phase with a constant and even feel through the lines and risers, giving that reassuring tension needed for a perfect launch every time, especially in nil wind days.

 

RPM’s energy retention is so brilliant that landings in nil wind are easy and uneventful, even when flown on the smaller sizes.

 

The combination of 60 cells and an AR of 5.8 gives the RPM a very efficient platform making it the perfect cross country glider. Its compact and playful feel also makes this glider extremely fun to fly and big sweeping turns, wingovers and light acro manoeuvres can easily be performed on the RPM.

 

A glider where the intermediate|advanced ppg pilot will feel at home on the very first flight.

Shark Nose Full Reflex Efficient Profile

Our “shark nose full reflex efficient profile” is a solid and pitch stable airfoil. Meaning:
  • Safer aircraft
  • More efficiency
  • Higher stability
  • Fewer oscillations
  • More Solidity at all speeds
  • Higher comfort

Optimized Internal Structure

Each cell and diagonals were structurally dimensioned and thoroughly computer analyzed to offer the most suitable chord and span-wise sail tension.
The result is a canopy with less attachment points but more taught and rigid offering just enough flex characteristics to give the ideal feedback.
A well-tensioned sail is especially important at higher speeds to improve solidity and resistance against collapses.

Alighted Cell to Air Flow

The RPM was designed in a way where every cell are aligned to true airflow creating less disturbance by the inherent billowing effect found on paragliders.
The canopy twist and wash out the wingtips further reduce drag and improve the lift coefficients and aerodynamics on the RPM.

Short Structural Nylon Rods

Strategically placed plastic rods of different stiffness and thickeners to give optimum rigidity to the canopy.

RPM’s nylon rods are placed strategically to optimise sail tension. They mostly of short length allowing an easy fold without the use of a dedicated folding pillow. Ultimately allowing an uncomplicated folding procedure.
