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.

At 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 are installed and ready to be connected by the mean of a micro servo. The high 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.
