The Muse 3 stood out among the EN-A gliders in the Testival issue of July 2011. It was the representative which came closest to being an intermediate glider.
In a solo test we now take a thorough look at look at how well equipped this Czech glider really is.

In ancient Greece, the Muse was believed to be a source of inspiration, which should spur creative achievement. This is a beautiful image, which aptly seems to be especially true for the brand new EN-A category glider from Mac Para Technology. From the beginning the engineer, director and designer Peter Recek is not unknown, quite the opposite. He is a veteran of the flying scene, former member of the Czech national team and privately a nice fellow. Despite his success Peter speaks modestly about his designs even though his gliders are now and were, time and again at the top of the development. Most recently, he landed a groundbreaking development leap with the Magus XC2.
Interesting is the view at the reorientation of the manufacturer on the performance.
Despite the lack of mention in the specification Peter reported a significant increase in performance even with the new Muse. He speaks of a glide ratio of 8.3, one rarely achieved in this category. But the true qualities of the Muse 3 lie beyond the numbers.
