On the 23th of December 2013 load tests for T-wings (Fox 16T, Discus 15T and Combat 12T) and nano-trike ANT has been successfully
We have to note, that wasn't the first series of load tests. Wings Fox 16T and Discus 15T were successfully tested for the first time a
few years ago. And based on the results of those tests Aeros set the maximal clip-in weight up to 155 kg.
The main goals of the current tests are:
- initial testing of the Combat 12T wing
- finding ways to increase the max. clip-in weight for the wings Fox 16T and Discus 15T
- obtaining DULV's certificates for the nano-trike ANT with every model of the T-wing
A few minor changes in a wings' design allowed us to increase max. clip-in weight to 168 kg for the Fox 16T, 170 kg for the Discus 15T
and 178 kg for the Combat 12T.
So, all T-wings manufactured before the date mentioned above have to be run with max. clip-in weight not exceeding 155 kg.
And all the new T-wings may bear load as mentioned in the previous paragraph.
For owners of the "up to 155 kg" T-wings Aeros is ready to offer an upgrade kit, if needed.
The nano-trike ANT has successfully passed about 20 different tests.
Below you can see a few shots that were taken during the test procedures.
