The Muse 5 Hybrid is manufactured using the paragliding industries well established lightweight material with excellent durability; The Muse 5 Hybrid is made of proven Skytex materials. Skytex 32 Hard finish for all profiles and diagonal ribs. Skytex 38 Universal is used for upper surface and LE of lower surface. Skytex 32 Universal is used for bottom main surface. This gives the advantage of a sail that is both lightweight and very durable.
Is such a glider even suitable for powered paragliding? The answer is, yes, of course! Ideally, hybrid versions are for pilots who desire a combination wing for both free flying and powered paragliding. And since a hybrid, by design, is more efficient (less fuel consumption with motor), it is also a smart choice for motor pilots who wish to leave a minimal ‘carbon footprint’, while at the same time, enjoying benefits of greater fuel economy.
On the other hand, if you consider the many possibilities and qualities of today's powered gliders, it is necessary for each pilot to define their own unique requirements for powered flying, while considering their economic priorities.
Hybrid gliders are primarily designed and tuned for free flight. And at higher loads, such as with a paramotor, hybrids can sometimes exhibit behavior which a motor pilot may not prefer. Hybrid gliders tend to be less stable in roll at higher loads, which actually may suit some pilots who prefer sporty handling and playfulness when flying close to the ground. The new powerful free flight profiles are designed for maximum buoyancy which makes these profiles more sensitive to air movements flying against the wind and in turbulence. On the plus side, hybrid gliders usually require shorter takeoff speed while offering slower landings.
Who is it for ..?
Muse 5 is a top hybrid glider designed for recreational pilots combining free and powered flying. For pilots who prefer the highest level of safety. The Muse 5 Hybrid has been tested for powered flying and received DGAC certification. Its flight characteristics and stability provide comfort on board, while excellent performance allows long flights with minimal fuel consumption.
