The Salto H-101 (English: Loop) is an aerobatic glider of full composite construction, developed in Germany in the 1970s. Based on the Standard Libelle H-201, it was designed by Ursula Hanle, widow of Eugen Hanle, former Director of Glasflugel GmbH. The Salto prototype first flew on March 6, 1970, and 67 had been delivered by early 1977, when production at Start + Flug GmbH Saulgau ceased, five more Saltos were built from 1993 to 1996 by the German company LTB Frank & Waldenberger, bringing total output of Salto gliders to 72. The H-101 was very unique with its 4 flush-fitting air brakes fitted to the trailing edges of the wings, replacing the more conventional air brakes of the Standard Libelle. The Salto's air brakes are hinged at their mid-points so that half the surface projects above the wing and half below. In addition to this the airframe of Salto H-101 was designed for full aerobatic routine. The model is very well reproduced and belongs into the super scale class, with its outstanding cockpit interior, beautiful gel-coated finish and excellent flying characteristics. Flying is just amazing due to the acceptable wing loading, it thermals well without any bad behavior and smooth and predictable handling. The kit is very complete. The wings are hollow molded, spoilers installed and the ailerons are live hinged, the V-Tail is also fiberglass molded. The clear plastic canopy is fitted to the fiberglass cockpit and has the full size opening mechanism. The hollow molded, carbon fiber reinforced wings are easily removed for transportation yet are securely held in place with massive carbon fiber wing rod. All these features give the Salto excellent performance while still remaining very light and relatively inexpensive. The synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual in a production sailplane and can only be achieved with careful attention to design and construction. This model is considered one of the best values on the market today.

With its fiberglass fuselage and carbon fiber reinforced, hollow molded wings the Salto can handle full day of slope soaring as well as complete aerobatic routine. The careful use of composites creates a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time.
