Moyes Litespeed RX3.5

Moyes’ new Litespeed RX3 and RX3.5 competition hang gliders are for pilots of 50kg upwards.

Described as, “light, fast and perfectly balanced”, Moyes say the RX3 is the first advanced competition glider ever to allow light pilots to finally compete effectively with their heavier counterparts.

The RX3 and RX3.5 have wide wing spans for racy performance, and a flat sail cut which gives better top speed and glide at speed.

The trailing edge planform has been shaped to give a more balanced feel in thermals with less high-siding.Pitch stability has also been improved thanks to new cloth rib sections across the wing span.

The RX3 is for pilots of 50-65kg, and the RX3.5 for pilots of 65-75kg.


Size: 12.8m2 and 13.5m2

Span: 9.77 m and 10.07 m

Aspect Ratio: 7.35 and 7.51

Optimum pilot-only weight range: 57kg +/- 7 kg and 70kg +/- 7kg
