Dirks-Glaser in Germany has manufactured many versions of
their popular DG-600, which now has been superseded by the DG-800 on the production line.
But still many pilots fly the DG-600 and the actual tendency is to refurbish them with
winglets to improve the overall performance. We are very pleased to offer here a
(~1:5) semi-scale reproduction of one of the cutest glider.
You can fly this kit with both wingspan (3.0 m and
The kit includes the winglets for the standard class version and the extension tips for
the open class high aspect ratio wings. This mid sized model is an interesting subject to
introduce yourself to scale gliders. It comes out pretty light, which leads to very safe
handling. The HQ airfoil gives it a broad speed range and forgiving flying characteristics.
wings allows it to be ballasted
and it becomes a rocker on the slope. Also easy to hi-start, it likes it behind a tow
plane for thermal duration flying. On the slope, after removing the winglets, it will allow you to perform most known
aerobatics manoeuvres. This version of the DG-600 is very accurate to scale.This is a highly prefabricated kit, the model comes
fully moulded, and
ready for radio installation. Only a few hours are required, before you go to the field.
The wings are hollow moulded, with carbon and glass reinforcement. With a high
gloss surface finish and control surface pre-cut and live hinged. It features
flaps and ailerons control. Electric
airbrakes are already installed. The winglets and wing tips are hollow moulded Fiberglas. The high gloss, gelcoated
fiberglas fuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes installed. The canopy
needs to be fitted to its canopy tray. Tail surfaces are
also hollow moulded and are finished. A small hardware package and short building
instructions are completing the kit. Retractable landing gear is not included
and may be purchased separately.
