Gin - Nano 09




The Nano 2009 is now in its third generation and is still the reference for speedriding's par!

The new 2009 version, designed for learning and regular practice, is a leap forward from our earlier models and way ahead of the competition.

The Nano 2009 impresses with its brilliant handling and its optimized materials: simple, efficient, safe and pure fun!

In addition to the latest technical improvements are a new look and optimized and improved materials, the direct result of our experience of many hours use in harsh, extreme off-piste environments and also in schools. The NANO 2009 follows the same philosophy as its predecessor: simple, easy, safe and fun. The NANO 2009 has a wide speed range, able to be flown slower than its predecessor. In addition, it has a trim system to vary the glide angle to speed up or slow down flight. Adjust the NANO to match your skill and the terrain, even when it is steep. All sizes are very easy to launch, extremely solid in flight, and offer an easy, progressive and responsive reaction to your inputs. The turn is more 'skiable', without parasitic lift. Lift comes clearly and obviously when you decide. The NANO range is wide enough to suit everyone, from novices to experienced pilots.

The NANO 2009 is available in 3 sizes:
Choose your size according to your weight and your pilot skills:

11 m2 (lemon) - is suitable for regular and experienced pilots
12.5 m2 (mint) - is suitable for light weight beginners and regular pilots
14 m2 (Lychee) - is suitable for heavy weight beginners and regular intermediate pilots


The NANO 2009 is delivered complete with a new, specially designed 'SPEEDRIDER' convertible harness/rucksack, carabiners and a stowable, fast-packing bag. There is also an 'zip and clip' airbag, which is perfectly suited to both school and regular use.

Guesses on trim speed?

Anyone want to guess the trim speed of the different size Nano's? I have a 14 and hands up with no dynamic speed at sea level I would say the airspeed is 60km/h...

I can't find this info anywhere on the internet so any input would be much appreciated...and I would be downright grateful for heaps of info like glide ratio, etc. Has someone taken their flytec out on a speedflight of any type wing?
