The DG-1000 is the latest release at Dirks-Glaser. It
declines in two spans, 18 m which is fully aerobatic and the 20 m high performance version.
The design target was to put together all advantages of three current designs on the
market the ASK-21, the Duo Discus and the DG-505. The wingplanform may remember the Duo
Discus and has a quad taper, which improves the low speed handling. The seats have been
rearranged so the rear seat is higher to improve visibility. The main wheel has been moved
forward so that the front wheel could be removed to reduce it's induced drag. We
are very proud to offer here a (~1:5.5) scale reproduction of a very high performance
The size of this glider makes it a good candidate to get
into scale soaring. This kit feature sheeted foam core wings, covered with
Oracover, airbrakes installed, ready for radio gear installation. Wing
tips are hollow moulded and are of plug in type. Fuselage comes with
canopy and retract fitted and tail surfaces are also hollow moulded. The neat wingplanform will
give you a smooth handling, a great LD and exceptional thermal ability. The HQ airfoil has
very smooth and forgiving flying characteristics. It is easy to do tight circles without
tip stalling out. Also easy to winch, it likes it behind a tow plane for thermal duration
flying or light aerobatic program.
Radio requirements are two micro servos for the ailerons,
two for the airbrakes, one micro for the elevator, two regular servos for the
rudder. An additional servo might be installed for aerotow. Optional
retract wheel may be ordered separately.
