GENERAL DESCRIPTION

The Falcon 4 represents eighteen years of cumulative refinement of the most popular and successful glider in Wills Wing’s history. Since 1994, the Falcon series of gliders have represented the most accessible, stress-free soaring performance available in hang gliding, and have helped to introduce an entire generation of new pilots to the sport.
Updates on the Falcon 4 include a new sail cut and new sail panel layout, improved lateral stability at higher speeds and under aero tow conditions, and the option for the glider to be built with a Litestream Control bar for an extra $275. The Falcon 4 comes standard with an airframe that breaks down to shipping length, but is not short-packable into the 2 meter length. The short-packable airframe is an available option on the Falcon 4 for an extra $250. The 195 size features an extra batten for improved airfoil definition, and, on the standard airframe, a smaller diameter crossbar for reduced drag and improved performance. The Falcon 4 is currently available in the 145, 170 and 195 sizes – the Tandem remains a Falcon 3 Tandem at this time.

NOTABLE FEATURES

- Can be short-packed to under 7 feet (2.1 m) for transport with available optional aiframe
- Quick – attach nose cone enhances performance
- Optional Litestream performance control bar can be ordered as an upgrade
- Transverse batten extends washout support provided at wingtips, allowing for reduced number of reflex bridle lines
- All main frame tubes are 7075 – T6 drawn seamless tubing for maximum strength to weight ratio
- Improved sail cut yields enhanced aerodynamics
- Handling is light and quick, yet remains comfortable and reassuring
