The Salto H101 was
designed as a pure aerobatic glider by Ursula Hanle, widow of former Glasflügel
director and designer Eugen Hanle. Construction of this single seater 13 meter
glider was based the H-30, and the standard Libelle. The Salto was
built so several parts of the Libelle could be exchanged. It used shortened
Standard-Libelle wings and had trailing edge airbrakes. Fuselage was a sturdy
all glass construction with a fixed wheel. V-tail and a side opening
canopy. First prototype flew in 1971 and became since a rarity.
This Salto H101 is a
really nice semi-scale
reproduction and comes as an all molded kit and is highly finished. This model is best suited for slope flying
and pure aerobatics, but will do well on a
good thermal day. Building and flying require
some skill, thus the designation for intermediate pilot.
This is the scale version, with the scale speed brakes. The kit comes
completely finished. The
wings are hollow molded and the ailerons are live hinged. Construction
is glass/rohacell sandwich
wing skin with plenty of carbon reinforcement, fuselage is all glass
carbon reinforcement. An optional version is available as with full
and a full Kevlar/carbon fuselage, for extreme flight. The V-tail is
bolt on and
so removable for ease of transportation. The clear plastic canopy is
fitted to the fiberglass tray and hinged sidewise like the full size,
molded seat and interior
are finishing the cockpit. Fixed wheel is installed. Scale airbrakes are
to hook up. All what's required is your radio gear. You will need
4 high torque mini servos for the wings, 2 standard servos for the
V-tail and a
For aerotowing, this glider requires a nose tow release sold separately., this is also a great candidate for electric power, either retractable EDF (Jetextender), FES (front electric sustainer) or pylon.
