The DG-300 is a Standard Class single-seat high-performance glider built of glass-reinforced plastic. The DG-300 was designed by Wilhelm Dirks and manufactured by Glaser-Dirks Flugzeugbau's Slovenian partner company Elan (company). A total of 511 of all versions were built since production started in 1983. Representative contemporary types from competing manufacturers are the Rolladen-Schneider LS4 and the Schempp-Hirth Discus. The later DG-303 version with a new wing profile and winglets was developed that delivers higher performance at low to medium speeds plus increased aileron response. A fully aerobatic version (the Acro) was also sold, stressed for +7/-5g. The DG 303 Acro is a modern standard class sailplane which, thru appropriate structural reinforcement, is additionally certified for aerobatics.  We have succeeded in encompassing the full flight spectrum of the original in model form.   The DG 303 is very uncritical, exhibits neutral stability in turns and responds very well to light thermals.  The HQ airfoil we have chosen for this model allows a somewhat faster speed enabling better use of stored momentum for cleaner aerobatics.
