The Nyx is the latest development from the
Hera/Artemis boys. Aerodynamically computer optimized and designed, it
represents the results of the combination of the top pilots and designers
know how, which lead to a model far beyond the current top racing sailplanes. A
true CAD/CAM design. Every part was CNC machined for perfect accuracy and best
The facts are very
efficient wing, stabilizer and fin plan form (yes, the fin is a true airfoil!).
A new airfoil (HN-354SR) with excellent wind penetration and surprisingly great
thermalling ability. This well balanced design has an outstanding handling, very easy
to master, actually it thermals by itself.
The Nyx comes in three different lay up options:
XLT: Glass/balsa/glass skin,
special spar layup, w/Kevlar & carbon
fuselage. 1800 g (similar to the Artemis LT+).
F3J: Kevlar/carbon "D" tube &
Kevlar/carbon fuselage, ballast tube. 1900 g.
F3B: All carbon skin,
large ballast tube. 2200 g.
