It retains its excellent qualities and reputation in the paragliding and paramotoring community. Over 13 months we tested prototypes of its successor and decided to keep the name Eden.

Progressing from the Eden 2, we were challenged to make lighter brake pressure and retain the excellent behaviour during take off, security and handling of the canopy. We tested 7 prototypes with different airfoils and several line configurations. Each prototype also received intensive extended testing for use with a paramotor. The Eden 3 has 52 cells, which get thinner closer to the wing tip. The slim elliptical form of the canopy has an aspect ratio of 5. The line configuration used is from the Intox and helps maintain a clean canopy.

The canopy is very resistant to collapse. It features excellent stability throughout the full weight range and speed window. In an induced collapse the glider does not rotate quickly and will usually reopen within 50 degrees. MAC pilots already know that we do not have to advertise the easy launch and landing characteristics. Despite high performance potential and agile handling the Eden 3 has good dampening in all axes. The light brake pressure allows pleasant turns during long thermal flights, but increases progressively toward the end of its travel to offer safety reserves.

The Eden 3 is equipped with split A risers for easy big-ears. We are proud of them. Gleitschirm magazine has put this Eden bird under the magnifying glass.

Uniformity and detail are very important for these Czechs and they have taken time for development. Only one year after the restructure of the DHV category and four years after the introduction of the Eden 2 to the market [ were sold according to company information] its successor was introduced.

Sixteen prototypes were made and tested with the goals of longer brake range and refined response of the canopy to brake input compared to the Eden 2. Consequently the designer tested each prototype with a paramotor. It was difficult to achieve ideal damping of the roll axis without a detrimental influence on the handling for free flying. A courageous goal, which was perfectly achieved after 18th months of development and testing.

The Eden 3 flies equally well whether free flying or paramotoring. A greater influence on its design was the Intox. The aspect ratio was reduced and the number of cells was increased to 52, which progressively narrow towards the wing tips.

During fine tuning of the final prototypes priority was given to the different panel tensions. It has lead to very easy take-off characteristics and perfect performance. The combination of different materials, also used on other MAC PARA models, is a precious compromise between: quality workmanship; long life materials and achievement of low weight.

Together with a minimum volume we can say that the Eden 3 is useable as a mountain paraglider. It is really strange, because paramotoring implies stronger due to the heavier load.

Construction was load tested to 8G at the maximum weight of kg [nearly1. It has no tendencies to overshoot. Although the behaviour of canopy remains somewhat damped whilst maintaining a straight course, reaction of the canopy is precise and speedy to brake input and allows corrections during take off. The first time a pilot takes to the air with the Eden 3, he will initially notice the consistent flight behaviour and specially the very easy and precise handling.

In our comparison of DHV gliders the new Eden 3 was promptly awarded the position of all-rounder, among others thanks to easily achieved descent manoeuvres. The Eden 3 maintains its course and flies fluently through the air, while very precisely steerable. It gains advantage from its more or less flat turns.

In turbulence you occasionally feel lift on the inside but turning is not affected by it at all. The Eden 3 continues to turn fluently and the outside does not show any loss of internal pressure of the wing. Although the canopy, thanks to its good damping, gave a flexible and resilient impression, it seems in the long axis a bit stiffer, weight-shift is somewhat less effective, but at the same time it benefits from a high damping of roll movement.

When thermaling the feedback from the brakes is excellent. Thanks to its flat turn the Eden 3 is naturally in its element in light conditions, but it also feels good in strong thermals. Once the Eden 3 flies into a strong thermal, it can be steeply banked, it leaves behind its tendency to turn flat; and turning with high angle gives a good impression. Pressure in the brakes remains light. Entry to and exit from thermals are well balanced.

The speed system can be used for extended periods without pain, saving power and energy during XC flights. The effective use of the speed system over long distances was demonstrated by Bernhard Plasser at the end of May Reaction of this glider to asymmetric collapse is without any surprise.

Normally the Eden 3 is almost unaffected by any surge and immediately and spontaneously recovers from an asymmetric collapse with a turn of less than 90 degrees.

Only during BIG asymmetric collapses does the pilot notice a marked surge of the canopy, nevertheless turn during recovery is not more than 90 degrees.

If the pilot reacts with counter-steer then it is easy to keep the canopy in straight flight and without problem and easy to maintain course. A normal small collapse is followed by smooth reopening of the canopy without input. Occasionally it is beneficial to speed the process with adequate counter-steering. Thanks to split A risers big ears are easy. The closed part is relatively large and thanks to this sink rate is really effective.

Combining Big Ears with the use of the speed bar the sink rate can be improved. It is possible to control the glider using weight shift but you can reach turns with a high radius. For this reason is better to support this manoeuvre with use of the speed system, because the Eden 3 is then more manageable and dynamic.

Reopening of big ears must be made with clean and progressive application of the brakes. B-Stall on the Eden 3 can be described as a brave parade manoeuvre, because rarely can another paraglider achieve the level of this DHV glider with its simple performance, behaviour and effectiveness. The canopy falls minimally backwards.

As soon as the B risers are released the glider returns to flight reliably with a soft surge, without demands for pilot input. Spiral dive with this new MAC glider a simple and practicable manoeuvre. The amount of sink rate can be changed by progressive application or release of the brake.

Behaviour during exit from the spiral dive is also exemplary. It does not surge unexpectedly from this manoeuvre and can be easily piloted out of the spiral dive. Even if the pilot ends the spiral dive too abruptly, the danger of flying in your own turbulence is very small.

The MAC team have succeeded in creating a genial "all-rounder" with a wide spectrum of use. On one hand the Eden 3 offers, due to its wide-ranging control clear dynamic and straightforward manoeuvres needed for descent options and good behaviour during extreme manoeuvres, which will be appreciated by talented beginners and especially by paramotor pilots.

On the other hand it provides performance oriented pilots enough potential for XC flights. Primarily the Eden 3 will inspire thermal specialists. Well balanced behaviour with excellent feedback in thermals combined with a magnificent climb rate offer everything a pilot could wish for.

At the same time the Eden 3 belongs in the narrow selection of gliders for para-alpinists thanks to its low weight and volume. Correct sewing and fabrication. Light construction! Rating 4. Suitable for beginners!

Easy take off handling by strong wind. Rating 5. Wide spectrum of use! Handling and performance potential! Especially suitable for XC flights. Easy and effective! Sense of speed system using. Excellent manoeuvre! Easy to do, reliable exit. Not demanding. Ideal for beginners. Exit not demanding! Increase of pressure with brake application. Glide is measured by the Gleitschirm team in a very exacting way. In the same way as for sail-planes, measurements are made in absolutely calm air before sunrise using a few flights in company with a reference calibrated glider.

At the same time pilots exchange between tested and reference gliders. After each flight, height differences between the gliders are measured with very accurate instruments. Finally using data from all flights the average glide angle of the tested glider is calculated.

Measuring instruments: 2x Aircotec XC-Trainer. The Eden 3 is manufactured using the paragliding industries well established lightweight material with excellent durability; Skytex 40, from Porcher Sport NCV. Because for any glider, the part that always wears out first is the leading edge, we use Skytex 40 with double water repellent coating E77A for this.
