DTA Magic

The DTA Magic is a French double-surface ultralight trike wing, designed and produced by DTA sarl of Montélimar and introduced in 2010. The trike wing was the first "topless" design to be offered by a French manufacturer.


Design and development

The Magic is a strut-braced "topless" hang glider-style wing designed as a touring wing for two-place trikes. It comes in one size with a wing area of 12.0 m2 (129 sq ft). The wing is comparatively small in area, which gives a higher cruise speed. Its low drag design means that trikes equipped with this wing require less installed power.

The wing is made from bolted-together aluminum tubing, with its 84% double surface wing covered in Dacron sailcloth. Its 9.4 m (30.8 ft) span wing has a nose angle of 130°, an aspect ratio of 6.4:1 and uses an "A" frame weight-shift control bar. The wing tips feature small winglets. It is manufactured by DTA's subcontractor, La société Ellipse.
