The DG-1000 is produced by Dirks-Glaser. It declines in two spans, 18 m which is fully aerobatic and the 20 m high performance version. The design target was to put together all advantages of three current designs on the market the ASK-21, the Duo Discus and the DG-505. The wingplanform may remember the Duo Discus and has a quad taper, which improves the low speed handling. The seats have been rearranged so the rear seat is higher to improve visibility. The main wheel has been moved forward so that the front wheel could be removed to reduce it's induced drag. We at ICARE are very proud to offer here a (~1:3.75) exclusive super-scaleTM reproduction of a very high performance glider.


Never flown such large glider, you will get the ultimate soaring experience with this high performance glider and be surprised how docile this glider is in the air, a real performer. The two wingspans will allow you to explore all the soaring capability, from smooth graceful thermalling to the taste of adrenalin with thrilling aerobatics. Its outstanding behavior makes it a great candidate to amazing distances for scale cross country flying. Again: ultimate soaring!
The wings and all control surfaces are of very accurate hollow-moulded construction. The well-proven HQ airfoil gives this fine model its smooth and versatile flying characteristics. This model is comfortable on a slope and can be winch launched but is at it’s best when aero-towed. Its thermalling performance is exceptional and the wings are sufficiently strong to withstand some aerobatics. Like its full-scale counterpart, the forward swept, triple tapered wing plan form looks especially graceful and unique in the air.


This glider comes completely built, and ready for radio installation. Only a few hours are required, before you go to the field. The moulded wings are made from carbon and Kevlar components, a carbon and glass fibre strengthener runs through the centre of the wings. Airbrakes are installed and ready to be connected by the mean of a mini servo. Ailerons and flaps are hinged ready to hook up. The high gloss, gel coated Fiberglasfuselage has the wing joiner carrying tubes, the rudder and elevator installed. The cockpit comes with all main components like the instrument mushrooms, seats, head rests done, it is the most detailed cockpit ever made. Canopy opens sidewise like the full size. Landing retractable wheel comes with brakes are installed and ready to work, like the tow release. A small package hardware and building instructions are completing the kit. If you would like to venture into large scale gliders this DG-1000 is a must!

Radio requirements are two micro servos for the ailerons, two for the flaps and two additional micro servos for the airbrakes. Four regular servos for the elevator, rudder and retract. Additional servos might be installed for aero-tow, water ballast (2 x 1,25 l – output radio controlled), and brake of landing gear.
