The Duo Discus  is the current two seater design in production by Schempp-Hirth in Germany. It comes with a span of 20 m and a glide ratio of about 45. This glider was designed for training, thus having performance similar to the original one seater Discus. It's particular look with the triple taper leading edge and forward swept wings is really graceful in the air. We are very proud to offer here a (~1:6.5) all glass semi-scale reproduction of a very high performance glider.

The size of this glider makes it a good candidate to get into scale soaring. As the kit comes with either finished sheeted and covered wings or hollow moulded wings, they are very accurately reproduced. The canopy tray has also the mouldings for the instrument mushroom done. The HQ airfoil has very smooth and forgiving flying characteristics. Also easy to hi-start, it likes it behind a tow plane for thermal duration flying. It has nice thermalling capability, and the wings are strong enough, so you can wring it out on the slope.

This is not a kit, the model comes completely built, and ready for radio installation. Only a few hours are required, before you go to the field. The wings hollow molded as any other surface (rudder, elevator). Airbrakes are installed and ready to be connected by the mean of a micro servo in the wing. The high gloss, gel coated fiberglass fuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes and the rudder control tube installed. Retract is installed and functional. A small package hardware and a short building instruction are completing the kit.

Radio requirements are two micro servos for the ailerons, and two additional micro servos for the airbrakes. Three regular servos for the elevator, rudder and retract. An additional servo might be installed for aerotow.
