I would like to get into this sport and i was thinking on buying an XT16 wing.
Is this wing as fast and dangerous like other speed wings in the size of 14?
How hard is to learn to fly this wing on a small slope without objects that can get in my way? I also want to buy the book The Speed Flying Reference Guide, i in the past had 37 skydives( i must get back into skydive too).
I also would like to know why the wing is called cross terrain, can i fly in thermals? i would like to have a wing that has some speed and fly downhill but i also like a wing that dont sink an can stay airborne if i catch thermals.
Whats an optimum wing load on this wings? Im into pushing weights and im kind of big.
Thanks in advance for the answers.
