The Salto H101 was
designed as a pure aerobatic glider by Ursula Hanle, widow of former Glasflügel
director and designer Eugen Hanle. Construction of this single seater 13 meter
glider was based the H-30, and the standard Libelle. The Salto was
built so several parts of the Libelle could be exchanged. It used shortened
Standard-Libelle wings and had trailing edge airbrakes. Fuselage was a sturdy
all glass construction with a fixed wheel. V-tail and a side opening
canopy. First prototype flew in 1971 and became since a rarity.
This Salto H101 is a
really nice semi-scale
reproduction and comes as an all molded kit and is highly finished. This model is best suited for slope flying, but will do well on a
good thermal day. Building and flying require
some skill, thus the designation for intermediate pilot.
The kit comes completely finished. The
wings are hollow molded and the ailerons are hinged. The V-tail is bolt on and
so removable for ease of transportation. The clear plastic canopy is fitted to the
fiberglass tray and hinged sidewise like the full size, molded seat and interior
are finishing the cockpit. Fixed wheel is installed. All what's required is your radio gear. You will need
2 sub-micro servos, 2 micro servos and a small 4 channel receiver.
