The DG-505 Orion is the current two seater design in production at Dirks-Glaser. It declines in three spans, 17.4 m and 18 m which are fully aerobatic and the 20 m high performance version. Then you have the DG-505 MB, with or without self launch retractable power system and flaps with 20 m and 22 m spans without winglets. We at ICARE are very proud to offer here a (~1:5) 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 molded wing tips mounted with winglet, you have a high aspect ratio glider with a great LD and exceptional thermability. 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 is easy to do tight circles without tip stalling out.

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 are glass reinforcement sheeted foam. Completely finished and covered. The wing tips/winglets are hollow molded Fiberglas. The high gloss, gel coated Fiberglas fuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes and control linkage installed. Tail surfaces are finished. A small package hardware and a short building instruction are completing the kit.

Radio requirements are two micro servos for the ailerons, three regular servos for the elevator, rudder and airbrakes. An additional servo might be installed for aerotow. Also optional is an installed retract wheel for perfect scale.
