The Gö-3 Minimoa from Schempp-Hirth was the first high performance glider in the world, that was produced in series. 110 were produced between 1935 and 1939. In the mean time there are only two flying Minimoa in Germany.
The original is a beauty, a muss for the vintage friend. In this model, lots of care has been taken to be as accurate to the full size as possible, so the wing are built up and tells by them self. The root ribs are cut out and let you see the inside of the wing structure as on the original. A beauty.
The wings can easily be retrofitted with airbrakes. The box to recei8ve the airbrakes is prebuilt, so only gluing the airbrakes in is required. The servo tray will receive the four standard servos: rudder, elevator, tow release. The elevator can optionally be actuated by means of two servos.
This Minimoa is not only a 1:5 scale reproduction but it fly like the original, a real puppy. The choosen airfoil and its built up structure makes this airplane a great all around characteristics that will fly a gentle speed. This airplane will do well on a flat field or on the slope.
