La suite dans la série des Magic, j'ai pu voler avec un 166 et je trouvais qu'il montait bien pour mon poids (85 kg). Assez stable, s'oriente bien au sol face au vent grace à sa grande poche de quille, bon en thermiques, attéros par vent nul OK. Dans l'ensemble, bonne aile pour un pilote qui a déja 35 heures ou plus et qui voudrait passer à une double surface. Il en reste pas beaucoup en bon état sur le marché de l'occasion, mais devrait pas être cher, environ 300 à 450 euros. Certains ont des montants profilés, d'autres des ronds. Un peu lourd en tangage, mais ok en roulis. Ma note: 3 sur 5

Lourd en tangage comparé aux ailes d'aujourd'hui (bien qu'on utilisait des ancrages flottants à l'époque pour pallier à ce problème). Maniabilité sans surprise, mais plutôt molle. Enorme trapèze (comparé aux ailes modernes), et même encore agrandi sur le 177!

J'ai un Magic 177 Full Race adapté sur un chariot Véliplane Samouraï, et je garantie que c'est une super aile, performante et maniable une fois chargée ...

I'd just like to add that the Magic 4 was also produced in the 155 ft2 size. I owned one from '92 to'94. It was my all time favorite glider. Though I've never flown a contemporary glider having not flown since '99. It was easy to set up and the cam lever to hook back the crosstube pull back cable was a brilliant idea. Pity that Airwave didn't continue this with the Kiss! Takeoffs were reasonably easy but I found that sometimes the nose would pop up followed by a rapid dive as the Magic picked up speed. (But this was probably caused by my crap takeoff technique!) Pitch pressure was good, increasing progressively as the bar was pulled back, and it was easy to maintain a high speed with the VG on full with roll corrections fairly easy to make provided you kept your arms in good condition by flying often. My longest flight was 4 1/2 hours at the Kaimai Range, N.Z. in 20+ knot winds and I only landed because I had to piss, not because I was too tired. I flew the majority of the flight with the VG 1/2 to 2/3 on. Energy retention in turns was very good and I found the IV thermalled best with a good high speed turn until you found the core and then you could ease the bar out into an easily coordinated turn with only minor corrections to pitch and roll. I used to love how quickly you could reverse your turn direction the opposite way to test whether the lift was in fact better turning against the thermal rotation. Not sure if it was, but the IV sure was a fun glider to try it on. Steep coordinated turns were great fun on this glider. You could pull into a steep dive, pick up speed and roll into a 60 degree banked turn and push hard out until your triceps ached and not worry about stalling the glider.
Landings I found to be a little tricker with a good hard flare required to end up on your feet in light conditions. If you left it too late the gilder wouldn't respond and you'd end up nosing in. Top landings were a breeze though particulary in strong condtions. You could line up square into the wind and pick your landing spot and then adjust the pitch angle to come down right on it without fear of nosing in or being flipped over. That's probably what I liked best about the Magic IV. The pitch reponse was very authoritive and had no surprises. Maybe it was heavy compared to modern gliders?, but it was just how I liked it.
My only complaint about the glider was that it was
a real pain to set up on the ground if the ground wasn't flat. The battens just wouldn't go in easily and would always catch the sail with much coaxing required to get them in. Also the battens would bend easily being made of very thin aluminium and checking the profiles was necessary quite often as the glider would develop a turn easily with only a slight increase in the camber of the outboard battens. Overall however in terms of absolute fun and the joy of the sport of hang gliding I award the Magic IVFR 8 out of 10!

I have a Magic IV 166 Cross-country model and it was the very last one ever made. I flew it 103 miles across western Kansas in 1999. And it hasn't been flown since as it sets on the rack in the garage. I flew it in competition against the best at Dinosaur CO and I could out climb everyone in a thermal but got left in the dust on the long glides. It could be flown flatter in turns than any glider I ever flew. Probably due to it's large wingspan and the light wing loading. I only hooked in at 180. It was easy to launch and at loose VG settings easy to land.

Salut et fraternité,
Mon amie Corinne ne vole plus en delta, elle vend son Magic IV, certes ancien mais en parfait état. 400€. Visible sur Annecy.
Je l'ai montée plusieurs fois au déco de la Forclaz, je l'ai vue voler et partir en cross, poser à Doussard en poussant, l'aile est précise et très saine. Selon Corinne, le pilotage est assez physique et après 2h de vol elle est crevée.

J'ai volé sur Magic 4 environ huit heures en cinq vols. Je l'ai trouvée agréable à voler, mais je détestais les atterrissages qui étaient difficiles pour bien pousser alors je l'ai revendu. Génial une fois en l'air.

I need a slats template for magic 4 , someone have it ?

Can anyone tell me the short pack length of the magic 4 166. I need to have it transported Thanks.


 
27/08/2015

I'm flying now with a magic 4.
I have also a slats template .
But how do I make a copy? Do you have any idea ?

La photo est celle d'un magic 4 "full race" avec un galon de bord de fuite en kevlar d'une dizaine de centimètres. Aile un peu moins maniable que le Magic 4 mais plus perfo en transition.

je vole encore de temps en temps avec , prise en mains impressionnant des le premier pas , surprise, tés agréable sa par comme une ballerine et superbe en vent fort aussi , et pour l atterrissage pareille comme sur un raille pour les thermique tous petit sa monte tranquille je m endormirais presque

bef c est mes pressenti par apport a plusieurs autre modèle des même années .

Est-ce que quelqu'un a un schéma pour la mise en place correcte des petites lattes? Merci, Johnathan

Hi
I flew the full race magic 177 for many years and put many hundreds of hours in it .I flew it in the 1985 world championships in Kossen Austria .I was my last glider as i was getting too old .I flew for 23 years . My favourite glider was the magic 3 177 which was a lot lighter to fly than than the 4 full race.I did test fly a few other gliders some much newer but could not notice any improvement over the the 4 full race thats why i kept it for so long .

I have a magic 4 until today, it's a fantastic flying wing. At this moment we are doing a change of cables and a good general so that I can fly it again. I hope they will make a wing with the structure of Magic 4 again.
