Currently best glider in it's category.

Great stability, combined with easy roll response.
Overall very easy handling, combined with good performance.

I can only agree with Frederick. See ozreport.com for more information on this absolutely great glider. A close second is the Discus by Aeros...my opinion.

I started on a la mouette atlas (Atlas Rules!!), then a old Moyes XS, great glide angle but terrible turns. On a U2 you can point your nose in any direction and the glider will follow. I'm very glad I have one. realy!

C'est la même aile que le sport 2. Je ne vois aucune différence à l'oeil nu.

pour répondre à Alain le sport 2 a des câbles de rappel, pas le U2 qui est plus perfo

Excellent delta. Facile à décoller et à poser. En l'air, il est très maniable et va effectivement là où l'on veut. Bon plané tout tendu et encore pilotable. Je suis passé du Talon 140, première version, au U2 145 et j'en suis ravi ! Bons vols à tous

very recommendable glider for pilots with a bit of experience, pilots who fly for fun and make distance on occasion. rerasonable performance combined with predictable handling. Will not surprise you with strange characteristics. type comparable f.ex. with Moyes Litesport which has higher gliding performance but stiffer handling characteristics. the U2 makes more fun, the litesport glides better (with the same harness).

takeoff: easy with a little (1/3)VG, well balanced, little backwards.
Flight: easy control, of course stiffer than a sport, effective VG which lowers bar-forces to nearly zero on full pull. however, flown with 0 VG it feels a little lax. can be flown slowly and - with no or low VG - close to stall point in thermics for better climb. No yawing at high speeds.
landing: predictable, stall point quite easy to find if a little experienced.
