The Tangent Flight Computer brings the full speed-to-fly theory to the
world of hang gliding and paragliding in the most comprehensive yet easily
usable form. The Tangent consists of a sensitive total energy compensated
audio vario with adjustable averager, altimeter, airspeed indicator, an
audio/visual "speed director" and a final glide calculator. The improvements
in glide performance are noticeable and usable by both recreational pilot
and serious competitor as well. Now available with the GPS interface, which
allows measurement of the headwind component and automated final glide.
If you are into cross country flying for recreation or in competition,
this is the class of instrument you will be flying with some day. Why wait
until you are being outperformed by everyone else? Be the one who is hard
to keep up with now!
