Details

It is completely different feeling when you fly the Fox T:

slow, low and maneuverable flying is real fun when you fly it. Even the light turbulence doesn't feel — the wing simply absorb it, giving you possibility to fly as relaxed as you can.

The Fox T has been developed from our beginner glider Target 16 and is reinforced and adapted exclusively for flying with the nanolight trikes.

Ben Ashman after he tested the Fox T said:

"It flies beautifully. It is the best handling wing that I have ever flown. It is so precise and manoeuvrable that it will bring the fun back into the sport. If this does not sell then there is something seriously wrong with our sport."

Modifications

Fox TL

Fox 13TL is a kingpostless wing that combines performance of a Discus T with simplicity of construction and quickness of rigging and de-rigging of a Fox T.

No kingpost means that you can store the wing in hangar while it remains fixed to the trike.

Fox 13TL has got one really unique design feature: it can be quickly set up on a trike from being folded to 5.1 m. This allows to store the trike with the wing on it in a really limited space in a hangar or even in a garage.

Setting the wing and the trike up for flight takes about five minutes. Outer leading edges are just inserted into the main leading edges, without pins, with sail put directly on the LE caps, that makes it possible to easily remove and de-rig the wing to a 3.5 meters long package, while leaving the wing still attached to the trike.

Weight Fox TL (without bags) — 35 kg (77 lb).

Minimum speed with hook in weight of 150 kg (a trike and a pilot) is surprisingly low — 37 km/h. Cruise speed is around 60 km/h and maximum speed is 90 km/h. (Airspeed measured with Aeros ANT nanolight trike and CorsAir M25 engine.)

Climb rate of a Fox 13TL powered by a Polini Thor 250 (36 hp) is 3.7 m/s with a 90 kg pilot. It is almost the same as a Combat 12T has with the same engine.

With all the features mentioned above combined with glide ratio better than that of a Fox T and maximum speed similar to a Combat T, the new Fox 13TL is ranked as the most outstanding wing in the line of Aeros nanolight trike wings.

Certificates

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 completed.

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.
