Here´s a video to enjoy a tandem test flight of the Rubi 3 with Daniel who shares with us his first impressions of the product with the passenger on board. ¨It has a good ground handling feeling¨, starts Danial on land. Once airborne with the passenger, he continues, ¨I really like the command it has, it is a bit buffered, a bit elastic but it´s soft, comfortable, perfect for work. When it comes to thermalling, it requires very little effort, the wing feels very stable, it´s quite noble, comfortable to handle. I really like the trim system, it´s very practical, very operative, well thought, simple and practical and it is one of the best trim systems I´ve ever seen. It comes with these bands here, with the different positions and they run perfectly well. Both to hold or release them…The commands are soft, buffered and they absorb turbulences well. They put up with a lot of brake, in the final approximation glide I used a lot of brake and everything came out perfect, very stable with a good rounding during the landing and an interesting level of features. It is good!¨, concludes Daniel. ¨I flew the Rubi 1, it was the Spanish champion and this one, of course, is better. It has a good performance for an EN B and it is good for thermalling… We´ve enjoyed it a lot!¨.
