2013 saw the release of the RX3 and RX3.5. The RX3 has slightly more span than the LS3 and a totally new sail design. The RX3.5 which is suitable for a 60kg-75kg pilot. It has a little more span and a total new sail design than the LSS4.

In 2014 Moyes added the RX4 option, perfect for pilots around 82 kg.

Frame Size Options

 

Regular A-Frame 1655mm Uprights? with 1372mm Speedbar
Smaller A-Frame 1575mm Uprights with 1270mm Speedbar
Shortned Speedbar

1655mm Uprights with 1270 Speedbar

The shorter Speedbar narrows the A-Frame apex and allows for greater ground clearance below the speed bar?. Making foot launch easier - especially in low wind conditions.

 

Sail Options

 

Technora Inlaid Mylar Sail

  • UV resistant, ultra-light weight with very low stretch and high tensile strength
  • Transparent mainsail inlaid design
  • The weight of the Technora sail is the same as the Code Zero sail
  • PX20 on the leading edge for durability
  • PX10 on the trailing edge for handling

White Inlaid Mylar Sail

  • The lightweight white PX 05 cloth for the mainsail has an internal taffeta and extra fine film of mylar on the inside of the cloth making it the perfect weight for a mainsail
  • Durable and long lasting
  • PX20 on the leading edge for durability
  • PX10 on the trailing edge for handling
  • Sail surface finished with Titanium Oxide to reduce UV effects


 

Silver Inlaid Mylar Sail

  • Silver coloured PX Mylar sail has the same durability and weight as the white PX Mylar sail. Offering another mainsail colour option.

 

Dacron  

Undersurface Sail

The three panels of Dacron can be custom coloured, with your choice of 16 colour options.

Carbon Parts Upgrade Options

 
Carbon Fibre Outer Leading Edge:

  • Lighter than aluminium by approximately 700 grams
  • Decreasing wing tip inertia, thus improving the maneuverability of the glider
  • Same stiffness with improved overall strength
  • Because this weight reduction takes place at the tip of the glider, this option has the most significant reduction in roll inertia of any further change to the glider configuration

Carbon Fibre Dive Struts:

  • Weight saving over aluminium by approximately 360 grams
  • Unique design with a spoon bill tip and tapered to the trailing edge
  • Added wall thickness for strength where needed
  • Refined designed to achieve the lightest and strongest product possible
  • As with the outboard leading edges this weight reduction is biased toward the wing tip, thereby having an enhanced effect in the effort to reduce roll inertia

Carbon Batten Set:

  • 5 Mainsail battens
  • 2 Undersurface battens
  • Improved stiffness with carbon aids pitch stability
  • Provides improved pitch stability
 
Carbon Fibre Inner Leading Edge:

  • Further reduces the overall weight of the glider, by approximately 900 grams.
  • Reduced glider weight translates into improved maneuverability.
 
Carbon Fibre Leading Edge Inserts:

  • Lightweight yet strong
  • Improved pitch and yaw stability
  • Innovatively incorporates a thin balsa insert for added stiffness
  • Helps maintain an aerodynamic profile between the ribs providing a clean, smooth leading edge surface, especially at high speeds

Carbon Fibre Keel:

  • Slimline design, low drag carbon fibre keel designed by Gerolf Heinrichs and Theo Klafsky.
  • Pre-impregnated carbon keel consists of a recessed, female pressure formed, keel mid section with modified 'Bailey Block' and a mid section cover to enclose the pull back cables
  • The rear keel incorporates a replaceable plastic 'wear resistant' foot
