If you liked the agile handling characteristics of the Factor 1, you will immediately feel comfortable with the Factor 2. The glider reacts to steering inputs very precisely and with little delay. The brake travel which is needed to fly the glider efficiently in thermals is now even less than with the Factor 1.
Furthermore we could increase the stability in turbulences: Collapses are very rare with the Factor 2, no matter if flying accelerated or at trim speed. The directional stability is also greater, which is a big help for flying through turbulences at high speed.
The top speed is significantly higher than on the Factor 1 and it’s very comfortable to use the accelerator due to the smooth-running speed system and the rather small operating travel.
Altogether we have been able to increase the XC-potential as well as the “Fun Factor”, which is well known among all Factor 1 pilots.
In turbulent conditions the Factor 2 stands out with a very high stability and it retains this stability up to the top speed. Big collapses are very rare. If the wing collapses, the reopening is rather damped and without impulsiveness.
Overall the Factor 2 offers a very reliable and easily manageable behaviour for the target-group of experienced pilots.
Performance:We have never been able to increase the performance between two product generations as much as from Factor 1 to Factor 2; the Factor 2 clearly outperforms its “smaller brother”, the Mentor 2.
The top speed is also a lot higher than on the Mentor 2. Both wings have outstanding stability and a flat polar in common.
All those things considered, the Factor 2 offers unique possibilities for XC-pilots.
Technical changes compared to Factor1:
new airfoil: because of the three line levels, we needed a new airfoil. It stands out for its pitch stability, and a high collapse resistance.
