The “cat is out of the bag”… Facebook > Close-to-production Mentor 7. Read more about it on: PGF > Is there a Mentor 7 on the way?. And I can help you get one at a discounted price, just ask by Email.

Kinda like the Gin Carrera ? I Really Liked that glider ; busted through the inversion layer 4 times, and never once had a collapse of any kind , on that borrowed glider ! It was my first go , with a PG that had Shark-nose ; and everyone knows how turbulent it is , breaking up through an inversion layer !!
Does this new Nova , have shark nose ?

Hi Bille. Many manufacturers have the equivalent to Ozone’s “shark nose”, but with design variations and call it differently. So the Gin Carrera you flew must have called its leading edge design by a different marketing name.April 5, 2022 at 1:00 PM #14781
Page for the light version is now on the NOVA site here. Since it’s a “2 1/2 liner,” they recommend using a B3 stall instead of big ears, which produces a swept-wing configuration. Supposedly, this gives a more stable configuration and more sink than big ears. Interesting video on that here.May 13, 2022 at 8:52 AM #15255
