The two private pilots sustained fatal injuries, and the glider was destroyed. A public affairs official confirmed the investigation is ongoing. Best advice is to test fly yourself. The wreckage was located on the lower eastern flank of Slide Mountain, at an elevation of 6,630 ft, about 2. It appeared in the classified section of Wings and Wheels, and promptly disappeared from the market within a few weeks. Nearest towns include Basingstoke, Winchester, Guildford and there are great road and rails links close by.

With a span of 4 meters this 1:5 scale Duo Discus is one of our finest Super Scale gliders. The cockpit is now 10 cm longer to improve seat comfort, security, space and ergonomics. The wings use the interlocking, floating wing joiner system. Fuselage strength has been maintained by mounting the unit in a carbon fiber box and using carbon fiber bulkheads for additional strength. It can also be flown entirely from the back seat.

Its thermalling performance is exceptional and the wings are sufficiently strong to withstand some aerobatics. Like most all beautifully-molded all composite sailplane kits, this is really a matter of assembly, not build per se. So here we have the X model sporting those features and exactly meeting my desires. In 2016, Revell released its T version, with engine this time, which is the most popular thing among glider pilots nowadays — self-launching or at least self-sustainable planes with high performance. Although not that fancy and popular among war machines modelers, Duo Discus is very nice addition to any modeling show.

All that remains for the builder to do is add one or two scale pilots for complete realism. Pre-hinged doors, and a special servo to raise and lower the unit are included. The fin battery is charged from the connecter in the cockpit, and this should be plugged in every evening. One and half foot airbrakes, specially manufactured for this airplane are all metal. As of Thursday afternoon, the fire reportedly burned 64 acres. Once it floats around the sky, you don't get the feel that this could be a scale ship, flies just the real one. Second, in Europe gliding is very popular sport.

Each wing is also two-parts with a short outer panel with one aileron and integral turned-up tip. The adverse yaw moment was much larger than I had anticipated it to be, but I do not have any experience with other Open Class gliders. There, I fell in love with their Duo Discus. The glider departed from the Truckee Tahoe Airport before it crashed. It then proceeded east on a meandering track while performing another series of climbing turns. He served as a mentor with the Truckee Airport Soaring Mentorship Academy.

Duo Discus from Revell includes the modest 65 parts, and is molded in white plastic to ease the process of painting. It is an easy to be build but hard to be painted kits, however its engineering is great and the fit — decent. The goal of the competition was to obtain the shortest flight time between two predetermined locations. Within a few weeks, the market for used Duo Discus gliders started to have more examples: A Duo Discus owned by Karl Striedieck, and a Duo Discus refinished by Rex Mayes, located in Minden Nevada came up for sale. The glider then immediately entered into a flat spin, and white shards of debris filled the sky surrounding the glider. There was no specific start time, and the gliders departed at staggered intervals throughout the day. The real Duo Discus have wingspan of 20m, and the kit is 32nd scale.

Although it shares its name with the highly successful Standard Class , any resemblance is only superficial. A Federal Aviation Administration official told the Tribune the aircraft was a Schempp-Flugzeugbau GmbH, Duo Discus motor-glider. There is a T version, which features an engine, bigger cockpit with better comfort and increased safety. I personally like both gliders. I got the whole gang to take a picture with the new glider I had a flight instructor come along for the ride I sure do look happy! If you wonder why, well, gliders are like that. It's not the first time I fell in love with a Duo Discus. Starting immediately and almost impossible to operate wrongly, this system - in combination with the Discus-2c's perfect control balance and well-known harmonic flight characteristics - provides the ideal solution for both ambitious competitive pilots and day-to-day usage in a gliding club.
