Moyes Delta Gliders

Moyes use a 1 x 19 strand stainless steel cable on our Litespeeds. The cable and assembly techniques we use, on all our gliders, have been thoroughly tested and exceed all safety requirements.

There have been a number of articles discussing the pros and cons of different wire material and constructions. All wires have advantages and disadvantages and we chose wires after consideration of these facts. Given this choice of wire, we recommend that all pilots consider the following;

Replace wires as recommended by the owners manual for your glider. For the Litespeed, we recommend replacing wires every 50 hours or six months.

When replacing wires, only use genuine Moyes wires. The way wires are assembled, and the materials that are used, make a significant difference to both the durability and strength of the wires.

Do a thorough pre-flight inspection every time you fly. Pay special attention to the end of your wires – both ends.

When assembling your glider, use a procedure that ensures that the wires can not be kinked.

With these points in mind, you'll have a fun, save flying experience.
