The Experience is the predecessor design to the Pegasus , designed by Jürgen Lutz in Germany, in 1991.
The Experience was featured in an article in 'Drachenflieger' magazine in the October 1991 issue. The design was controlled in pitch by weight shift and in roll by spoilers activated through control cables attached like side wires to the control bar, activated when the pilot pulls to one side, in an action similar to a conventional hang glider. The leading edge was made of graphite and carbon fibre, with twin-hinging ribs as in the Pegasus.
