The SZD-56 Diana is a 15 metre class glider originally designed by Bogumił Bereś at PZL-Bielsko. However, PZL Bielsko went bankrupt before it could be put into serial production.
The rights to the design were taken over by a new entity, Diana Sailplanes, which developed the design further and called it the Diana 2.
By 2011 the aircraft was being produced by Design Office Bogumil Beres. The glider first flew on 12 January 2005. (source wiki)

This is a 1:3 scale Diana 2 model of this popular sailplane. It has been designed for GPS-triangle competition with the latest technology for aerodynamic performance and for structural stiffness and strength. Diana 2 is made using 100% molded technology.
Of course, Diana 2 can be flown as a sport sloper or thermal  soaring model, but it excells in a high performance envelope. Diana 2 uses an airfoil profile often used in F3B competition models. Thus, you will be able to fly slowly in thermals, rapidly in speed runs, and a good glide ratio for distance flying. This broad speed range allows you to be competitive in GPS-triangle events. Diana 2 handles beautifully while circling in thermals and is very gentle on final approach and landing.
Diana 2  is recommended for pilots who want to try GPS-triangle competition but don’t want to spend "too much" money on a 6-7 meter glider.

This  Diana 2 is produced in four versions:

  • Standard version (single carbon 160g / herex / 50 glass)
  • Strong version (160g carbon / herex / 160g carbon)
  • Sport (GPS Light) version (80g carbon / herex / 80g carbon, HM wingspar roving)
  • GPS Spreadtow version (80g HM carbon spreadtow / rohacell / 80g HM carbon spreadtow , HM wingspar roving)
