The symphony was a common beginner wing that
was sold with the early DK motors. I only flew it about 10 times and don't
remember the sizes.
Handling (2): This is a beginner wing
in handling and, as such, is very forgiving. It takes a lot of brake
pull to turn.
Inflation (10): Great. One of its
endearing qualities was that it would inflate and kite easily in very
light winds. Launching was therefore pretty easy.
Efficiency (1): Glide is terrible. It
ties the original Reflex for the worst glide performance of any wing I've tried. It
required so much
power that my little direct drive Fly 75 barely got me aloft.
Speed (7): If you've got the
horsepower, this is a pretty fast wing.
Construction (5): Seemed to hold up
Certification & Safety (5): It's a
DHV 2 from probably 1995. The 2 was apparently due to some issue with a
B-Line stall. In every other way it felt like a DHV 1 glider to me. It
didn't handle turbulence well, I'm told, but I never noticed anything on
the few flights I had in light bumps (level
Overall: Tolerable as a beginner
glider if you don't mind very heavy brake input and burning a lot of fuel.
