The ATOS VR10 is an evolution of the VRQ. Features like the Winglets and an adjustable v-tail are still part of the design. A new designed connection between sail and ribs and a new, stiffer flap are the main changes of the newest generation of our gliders. Together with a slightly optimized interaction of tail trim and flap setting, these seemingly small changes have a remarkable effect on handling and performance.
Test flights after these changes led to a modified wing twist distribution showing improved speedbar pressure over the whole speed range of the VR10. Moderate forces at average gliding and a defined increase in bar pressure at higher speeds without any divergence make the new VR-10 the perfect glider for ambitious cross-country and competition pilots. Still the handling qualities while thermalling are the best available.
A Technora sail is available as an option fort the VR10. The stiffer material leads to less sail deformation and a better defined aerofoil at all velocities.
