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 1:4 semi-scale
reproduction and comes as an all molded kit and is highly finished. This model is
well suited for aerotowing, electric conversion or slope flying
and pure aerobatics, it 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 moulded, ailerons and flaps are live hinged, and
airbrakes are fitted.
Construction is glass/rohacell sandwich wing skin with a sturdy carbon D-box
reinforcement for additional stiffness and bottom of wings are painted in blue
for better visibility.
Fuselage is all glass with a high gloss finish. A fixed landing gear is
installed. The clear plastic canopy is fitted to the fiberglass tray, a moulded
seat is completing the cockpit.
All what's required is your radio gear. You will need 4-6 high torque mini
servos for the wings, 2-3 standard servos for the tail and landing gear, and a
