MAESTRO 2 Technical Features
After plenty of simulated drafts and prototypes, we came up with a highly complex concept to reach an unmatched clean surface and a very high form stability.
The increased high cell number (76 cells over 60 of the predecessor) in combination with the optimized 3D shaping, the new form stable rod materials and the additional miniribs in the leading edge are offering a clear reduction of wrinkles in the critical high airspeed / lift section of the wing. With the new rod materials and leading edge miniribs the stability at speed is exceptional. Couple this with the R07 riser and you have a gliding machine!
The result is not only better performance at all speeds. The airstream separation over the sail is much later: the maximum lift is higher, the flyable angle of attack bigger: the low speed flying excellent, the handling more forgiving (longer brake travel) and as a result of that the thermaling ability is on a new level.
We kept on optimizing and finally reached new levels of the famous safety / performance ratio. During this process of optimization, we proved every design element for its need: we eliminated most of the trailing edge miniribs, the bottom sail rods and the rods in the wingtips. So finally, the MAESTRO 2 is just a little heavier than its predecessor and still reasonable in price. The reduction of rods allows for a smaller packing volume. The MAESTRO 2 has rods only where they are really needed.
