The DG-1000 is the latest release at Dirks-Glaser. It
declines in two spans, 18 m which is fully aerobatic and the 20 m high performance version.
The design target was to put together all advantages of three current designs on the
market the ASK-21, the Duo Discus and the DG-505. The wingplanform may remember the Duo
Discus and has a quad taper, which improves the low speed handling. The seats have been
rearranged so the rear seat is higher to improve visibility. The main wheel has been moved
forward so that the front wheel could be removed to reduce it's induced drag. We at ICARE
are very proud to offer here a (~1:3.75) exclusive super-scaleTM reproduction of a very high performance
Never flown such large glider, you will get the
ultimate soaring experience with this high performance glider and be
surprised how docile this glider is in the air, a real performer. The two
wingspans will allow you to explore all the soaring capability, from smooth graceful
thermalling to the taste of adrenalin with thrilling aerobatics. Its outstanding
behavior makes it a great candidate to amazing distances for scale cross country
flying. Again: ultimate soaring!
