All fiberglass semi-scale sailplane. This is an absolute gorgeous reproduction of the famous DG-1001 from DG Flugzeugbau GmbH from Germany. It is an accurate 1:8 scale version, in all molded technology. At 1:8 scale this should be a small scale glider, but the high aspect ratio of the wing makes it still a comfortable sized plane of 2.5 m wingspan. Original forward swept wing plan-form, double taper elevator, installed airbrakes. Designated for the intermediate pilot, this is not the easiest plane to fly. It can be pitch sensitive at high speed. Suitable for aerobatics, it has also a realistic wing flex in the air. The wing does not have flaps. It can be histarted, winched or aero-towed. Also nice on the slope. Radio requirements are four micro servos for the ailerons and airbrakes, one micro for the elevator, one for the rudder. An additional servo might be installed for aero-tow.
