Our editors' review up to date on Dec 28 2016
Thanks to its peculiar all-perspex full-lenght canopy, the Glaser-Dirks DG-300 is one of the most recognizable sailplanes in the market.
It was first marketed as a competitor of other more expensive standard class racers such as Rolladen-Schneider LS4 and Schempp-Hirth Discus. Whilst DG-300's overall performances are a little lower in the real world than advertised - especially at high speeds - it is still one of the best climbers around and a great ship for its price.
The instrument panel is a little on the small side, but the large and comfortable cockpit easily overcompensate for this downside. Rigging is also easy and safe, since the DG-300 comes with automatic connections on all controls.We are looking for an influential pilot to review DG-300. Maybe you?
Because it's beautiful, the view from the all-perspex cockpit is fantastic, and you will never ever have cold toes anymore.
