PHI Maestro 2 (EN B+)
PHI Maestro 2 The new benchmark in EN B class for the next 3 years. 76 cells and additional miniribs.
It is not only the high complexity of this wing with its 76 cells and additional miniribs, offering an extremely smooth finish. It's not only its breathtaking performance in thermaling, gliding and speed. It's the balance, the handling and it is the feeling of being one with this outstanding wing!
High B has always been my passion and special discipline. I managed to build many reference wings in that EN B class (CARBON, ARTAX, MAMBOO, MENTOR 1, MENTOR 2, MENTOR 3). Hannes Papesh
PHI Maestro 2 is the masterpiece in the EN B class with 76 cells made from the best fabric available, so their quality and longevity are second to none. When you look at the cell count of other gliders for example other high B wings have 60-66 cells, EN C wings 64-68 cells, EN C two liners Photon 68-74 cells, and high EN D wings are made with 74-80 cells. The speed, glide and climb of Maestro 2 will match or outperform any current EN C 3 or 2.5 -liner glider. The guys that are on them love the stability and how it handles the turbulent air.
After flying the final MAESTRO 2 23 with 96kg (quite light with my light harness) in windy and turbulent conditions today during our pre-serial check. I found the wing very confidence-inspiring. The demand seems to be only a small step over the BEAT light. The canopy is very well defined and forms stable. Handling is great. I think this wing is for sure rising easiness, performance related to a new higher level! Please try it yourself! Hannes Papesh (PHI Designer)
The performance step in EN B class has never been this impressive. Even more importantly, the wing is very easy to fly. It is safe, well-compensating turbulences and gives perfect, homogeneous feedback. Hannes Papesh (PHI Designer)
Don't spend your time by comparing the PHI MAESTRO 2 against EN B and EN C wings! Ask the EN D 2-liner guys for a race! Try it yourself! Hannes Papesh (PHI Designer)
I got a couple of flights on the Maestro 2 in Bright. On one flight I glided next to my friends's current(EN C glider virtually from wing tip to wing tip. I was higher and faster. I'm sure I will have many fun flights on this wing. The handling is smooth. It turns really well. (Matt)
I had 2 flights – on an extended 1.5hr to base and out. It is a bit less nimble, and less chatty than the Maestro 1 or the xxxxx6 (EN C) but has a better climb, better glide and is more stable in bouncy air. It is going to be excellent fun. (Roger)
Hi Martin, I picked up the wing yesterday and took it up the hill for a short test flight. 6 hours and 101kms later I can confirm it definitely works! My first ever century, and likely the slowest!! Thanks so much for your efforts in getting it out here, it was superb! The wing flew brilliantly this week, it behaved beautifully, was talkative but solid, even in some really lumpy air, and launched very nicely in strong cycles up on launch couldn't have asked for more! James Gibson
The Maestro 2 is a great glider. Easy to fly, I feel safe in turbulent air, excellent glide ratio for an EN-B+. The leading edge is solid and flies fast on the full bar but also slowly enough when needed. Thomas Roger
