Design and development
The Imagine was designed to be an intermediate glider with good performance. Unlike many hang glider models, the Imagine is available in just one size, with a wing area of 14.8 m2 (159 sq ft).
The aircraft is made from aluminum tubing, with the wing covered in Dacron sailcloth. Its 10.7 m (35.1 ft) span wing is cable braced from a single kingpost. The nose angle is 134° and the aspect ratio is 7.73:1. The pilot hook-in weight range is 50 to 87 kg (110 to 192 lb). It is certified as DHV Class 2.
