The Duo Discus is the current two seater design in
production by Schempp-Hirth in Germany. It comes with a span of 20 m and a glide ratio of
about 45. This glider was designed for training, thus having performance similar to the
original one seater Discus. It's particular look with the triple taper leading
edge and forward swept wings is really graceful in the air.

Sub-micro servos for the wings.
1:8 scale this should be a small scale glider, but the high aspect ratio of the
wing makes it still a comfortable sized plane of 2.5 m span. Designated for the intermediate
pilot this is not the easiest plane to fly. It can be pitch sensitive at high
speed. But heck what a great look in the air. Suitable for aerobatics, it
has also a realistic wing flex in the air. The wing does not have flaps. It can
be histarted, winched or aero towed. Also nice on the slope.
This glider comes
completely built, and
ready for radio installation. Only a few hours are required, before you
go to the field.
The wings are sheeted foam and already covered with Oracover. Airbrakes
installed and ready to be connected by the mean of a micro servo. The
gloss, gel coated Fiberglas fuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes
and the rudder
control tube installed. The cockpit comes with all main components like
the instrument mushrooms,
seats, head rests done. Retract and tow release are optional and can be
ordered installed and functional. A small package hardware and
building instructions are completing the kit.
