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 glider.

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, three regular servos for the elevator, rudder and retract. An additional servo might be installed for aerotow.
