We have made an intrusion into the latest
offering of Chinese production. This semi scale DG-1000 is a good
example of what currently the Chinese manufacturer have to offer. It is a neat
stand off scale reproduction of the famous DG-1000 from Dirks-Glaser.
The size of this glider and its cost makes it a
great candidate to get into scale soaring. This kit feature finished wings,
ready for radio gear installation. Wing
tip extensions are hollow molded and are of plug in type. Fuselage comes with
canopy and tray, tail surfaces are also finished wood construction. The neat wing planform
will give you a smooth handling, a great LD and nice thermal handling. 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,
one micro for the elevator, and a
rudder servo. An additional servo might be installed for aerotow.
