It inherits many features from its predecessor ''DeltaGliderIII'', being still similar in handling and use as the '''DeltaGliderIII'''. Unlike the [[Delta-glider|Delta-glider Mk.4]], it does not have a [[Virtual cockpit|virtual cockpit]], but this missing feature is more than offset by the detailled and complex 2D panel.
