THRUST V

GET A QUOTE
PRODUCT INFORMATION

The APCO Thrust is one of the longest standing wings in our range. Thrust is a beginner / intermediate classic (non-reflex) wing, which is simple to use, safe and easy to progress with. It is universally liked and has withstood the test of time throughout the evolution of paramotor wings.

The Thrust V continues the legacy of the Thrust, but is a completely new wing – updated with latest technology available!

  • FAR ® – Flow Aligned Ribs – Thrust V is the first model to incorporate this feature ! It is the correct way to position the ribs of the glider – simply explained the tips will generate more lift! This additional lift improves performance and more importantly, the safety and stability of the wing.
  • APP ® – shark nose profile allows higher maximum speed while retaining a more constant internal pressure – the canopy is rigid, boosting confidence to novice pilots.
    Butt holes 2 – as the name suggests, these holes will easily allow release of any sand or debris collected inside the canopy.

CHARACTERISTICS

TAKE OFF

The Thrust V is factory trained to have a smooth inflation with no tendency to overshoot or fall back.  The Thrust V has a high lift profile which helps to give it its low lift-off speed.

LANDING

Low approach speed combined with long brake range, gives a highly efficient and safe landing flare.

THERMALLING

Low min sink, coordinated flat turns with no tendency to dive into the turn.

PERFORMANCE

The high lift capacity profile gives a lower power requirement  / RPM throughout the entire speed range.

CONSTRUCTION

The construction of the wing is bullet proof! Extremely durable cloth combined with proven construction, designed to withstand students abuse for as long as necessary.
