  1. We were lucky to get three test pilots on the hill at the same time for this review. If you found this useful, Like, Share, and Subscribe: it helps our channel grow!

  2. Thanks for the review it looks promising I will definitely add the tequila 5 on my list of glider to test during this summer and replace my mescal 4 at the end

  3. biggest question: are the (big) ears now more stable than on the T4? On some sizes / weights the ears on the T4 tended to continuiously flutter.. regardless of the method applied for getting them in.

  4. The Phi Symphonia always seems to be described in reviews (including flybubble) as an A class with the performance of a B. If that's the case, how do the Tequila 5 and the Symphonia compare?

  5. Nice to see a bit of a different review Greg with more of the personality and fun coming across 🙂 I dread to ask but, how've you been finding editing the fusion footage?

  6. My mife has tested the new Tequila 5 , and ordered it !!!
    So easy to get it over the head, in comparison to the Sup'air Leaf…. it's the opposite.

    It's really stable in the air, smooth, gently…. a really progression glider for someone who want to XC and have fun 😉 with smile !!

  7. I've tested and bought the T5.
    I did 22h+ under it in the last 2 weeks (1 week cross, 1 week castelluccio).
    This is my 2nd glider after 2 years under an EN-A Sky Fides 5.

    I agree about the strong stability of the wing, which allows to fly in various conditions.
    Pitch stops quickly by itself, its really impressive. "pitch-stable behaviour" indeed.

    I agree about the "shock absorber / elasticity" feeling.
    I also agree about the brakes : really comfortable and good size!!
    I feel pretty safe using the speedbar. I had no collapse while using the speedbar yet.

    I'm in PTV 95-115 (L) just above the middle of the range.
    I go up (thermaling or soaring) really easily with the Tequila, I definitely agree with its reputation.

    From my feeling, the T5 has great performance and great passive security.

    I agree about the "fun for a long time" in the air, which is what I want to start good xc flights.
    I remain serene under T5 which is essential for progression.

    Compared to other wings i've tested, T5 is giving input on risers, but i got the hang of it pretty quickly. It's not too much and gives nice informations. T5 "got life" indeed. A friend of mine was unhappy about this after a test with a very calm glider.

    When getting out of a 360 with ressource, i got the feeling i have to let the wing overshoot quite a bit before stopping the pitch, otherwise the wing keeps shooting when i release the brakes. The wing will probably go far before collapsing (good point). I'm told its normal for some EN-B gliders.

    To sum up, from my experience
    – The glider performance is very good. It goes up easily even in light conditions.
    I recently flew next to EN-C gliders and got the same floatability and glide (in no wind)
    – Handling and turn feeling is super great.
    – Inflation is super super easy. Easier than my EN-A ! I now often use only 2 A risers (middle) otherwise you get immediate lift on some takeoffs sites.
    – Sheated lines and breakes are great. (unsheated at top)
    – T5 "got life", but no scary rapid movements/overshoots

    I'm pretty happy about the T5. My best flights with it so far:

  8. Recommending an EN-B glider for an "ambitious first wing pilot" is not a good idea IMHO.

    It might gives the impression you can fly easily T5 with 0 flight hours.

    Also from what Greg is saying at the end (2nd glider after first year): I got the feeling this applies mostly for gliders on small hills.

    Personnally, I'd say this would be ambitious in the Alps with a complex aerology and strong thermals.

    Also about the "low B glider":

    This is slightly confusing because skywalk sell this glider as an "intermediate", EN-B glider.

    I suppose this is to mean "opposite to high B gliders / B+". I guess there are some EN-B gliders with more confort and less performance. Whatever, choose a glider corresponding to your level and that you feel safe under.

  9. Great review, as always! I'm planning to replace my glider and I find this reviews very usefull. Thanks a lot!
    Just a question… looks like this glider is easier to fly than Buzz z5 and ion 5, what about performance (glide/climb)? I'm flying an itv dolpo2 right now? Thanks!

  10. "lets see what theyve done with the 5.." Im glad it didnt cut straight to thermaling lol great vid

  11. Purchased one secondhand after 20 or so flights and I must say I love the feeling compared to my school EN-A glider. I’m a low time pilot but don’t feel intimidated at all. Launching is easy (makes me look like a pro) and it gave me great pleasure whilst thermalling, responsive but not a handfull. Just what I needed.

  12. Hey, nice video! Thank you! Actually I fly the Tequila 4! The Tequila 5 or Arriba 4 could be my Paraglider in 2020!
    I also upload paragliding videos regularly! I would be glad if you would visit and subscribe my chanel!

    Thanks and greets! Marcus
