The DG-303 Elan high performance
standard class sailplane is the latest development of the well proven DG-300
Elan, offering improved performance over the total flight regime. It is in
all aspect the same as the regular DG-303 Elan except structural to withstand
the stress of aerobatics manoeuvres. Also for air shows the DG-303 Elan ACRO
will be the perfect aircraft as the appearance of a standard class sailplane is
more aesthetic than a glider with short wing span designed for aerobatics
This 1:4 scale size of this glider makes it an
excellent candidate to get
into scale soaring and aero-towing. The kit comes with moulded winglet, which improves the
gliding performance. The HQ airfoil has very
smooth and forgiving flying characteristics, it responds well to thermal and
it's low camber allow for high speed and great energy retention for aerobatics. Also easy to
hi-start or winch, it likes it behind a
tow plane for thermal duration flying and aerobatics routines. The winglets
helps the handling in tight thermal circles without tip stalling
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 sheetd foam covered with Oracover. Airbrakes are
installed and ready to be connected by the mean of a micro servo in the wing. The
winglets are hollow moulded 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
Radio requirements are two micro servos for the
ailerons and two other micro for the airbrakes, two regular servos for the
elevator and rudder. An additional servo might be
installed for aerotow. Optional retract wheel can be installed for perfect scale.

For aerotowing, this glider requires a nose tow release sold separately, this is also a great candidate for electric power, either FES (front electric sustainer) or pylon.
