Good wright-Up here :
This is the part I Like : … “At the leading edge nylon rods create an air scoop (sharknose), but only one rod is used on each opening. …

Hi Bille, that review is a good read, but it is for the 1st version of the Maestro, instead of this 2nd version about to be released.
How much difference between the 1st and this upcoming version? The manufacturer write… “We can present you the greatest leap in performance that we have ever achieved from one generation to the next.“April 5, 2022 at 2:50 PM #14783Bille FloydGeneral Member
At 200-Lb , ( 90.7kg) in a swimsuit ; it kinda looks like by the time I add harness, reserve, and weight of the glider ; I may need the XL, judging from the specks from the 1st version of the Maestro ?

Best to wait for the specs to become available for the 2nd version, sometimes the weight ranges change, and then one would typically want to be 60-80% into the weight range. I can do the math for you then, and recommend a size. Typically the TFW (Total Flying Weight) is 123% of the naked body weight.

Looks like PHI has updated their site here, regarding the Maestro 2 (full specs).June 3, 2022 at 1:22 AM #15568
Mine is now in the manufacturing queue, size 21 (75-100 kg).
Color… Do I really need to say it? Think flight suit.

Got it yesterday and planning to fly it today under cloudy (hopefully no rain) skies. More flying in the following days.
I had to purchase one to test fly, so I have not decided yet if I will keep it. But I had enough hope to justify taking a small gamble. I will be collecting my observations in here, at the end of each flying day until I reach a decision.August 4, 2022 at 10:32 AM #16380
I’m expecting some serious show-and-tell going on this weekend. Likely lots of oohs and aahs.

The first set of in-flight observations, from today’s flying.
The next few days should offer classic summer (rougher air) conditions, allowing me to decide to keep it or not. But so far, I am enjoying it.
If you (anyone) is alongside in flight, it would be fun to compare glide at speed.August 6, 2022 at 12:42 AM #16399August 17, 2022 at 2:25 PM #16479August 20, 2022 at 3:03 PM #16503
