(*) Extended Weight Range
Although the EN/LTF flight tests showed a 3,7 m/sec descent rate at 100 Kg, our own experience also tells us that highly loaded Rogallos, like conventional reserve parachutes, can lead to mirror flying or down-planing when combined with the paraglider. This mainly happens with very stable and collapse resistant school gliders, or in very steady throwing conditions such as training openings over water. The EN/LTF practical tests are always carried out in separated configuration – without the troublesome paraglider. When developing our Rogallo reserve parachutes we focus a lot of attention on the overall functioning spectrum, above all in connected condition (when the paraglider is not cut away).
Despite the positive flight tests at more than 100kg we recommend that the extended weight range is only for use by experienced “Rogallo pilots”, or in conjunction with a reliable cut-away system.
