About the original CIRRUS and the model:
CIRRUS is a top notch hi-performance sailplane; it is manufactured by Messrs. Schempp-Hirth KG of Kirchheim/Teck, making use of modern fiberglass/plastic construction techniques. The manufacturer is an old hand at building sailplanes with 34 years of experience in his field.
Extensive theoretical and practical studies preceded the build of the prototype. The waisted fuselage shape, for instance, was tested by Dr. Wortmann in a wind tunnel. This particular shape results in low drag, which in turn improves flight performance despite a spacious cabin providing outstanding pilot comfort.
The model version of the CIRRUS sailplane offers a wing span of 118 1/8", approximate scale is 1/6th.
• Wing Span: 118 1/8"
• Fuselage length (approx): 45 1/4"
• Length o.a.: 49 1/8"
• Wing area: 806 sq. in.
