Originally built in 2004 by Schempp-Hirth, the Discus 2c was produced to replace the previously successful Discus sailplane in the Standard Racing Class. A completely new wing has been designed in close cooperation with Dr. Karl-Heinz Horstmann (wing geometry, profile) and Professor Mark Maughmer (new type of winglet). To date, around 500 of the full-scale gliders have been produced. The fiberglass fuselage is finished flawlessly in white gel-coat. Both the rudder and horizontal stabilizer with elevator are fully hollow molded. The canopy is pre-hinged in a fiberglass frame and comes complete with a scale-like latch and vent. The cockpit is complete with instrument dashboard and fiberglass seat, just like the actual plane. Retractable landing gear with working doors is also installed. A tow release is installed in the nose. The wing and fuselage both have pre-installed wiring harnesses that also include multi-pin connectors for fast, trouble-free setup at the field. The wing is finished beautifully and ready for your aileron and spoiler servos. The only “building” left to do on the wing is to attach the fully molded winglets. The foam core obecchi sheeted wings are easily removed for transportation yet are securely held in place with Topmodel’s ingenious retention system. The spoilers are quite effective and make landing in smaller spaces very possible. While flying, the Discus 2c is predictable and shows no bad habits. The intermediate pilot will have no trouble at all. Whether you aero tow or fly from the slope, the Discus 2c is a good choice.
