The Libelle and Standard Libelle were very popular and influential designs. The prototype made its first flight in October 1967, with a total of 601 being built. The type soon made its mark in contest flying; one flown by Per-Axel Persson of Sweden, winner of the 1948 World Championships, came second in the Standard Class at the 1968 World Championships at Leszno in Poland. Their very light wings and extremely easy rigging set a new benchmark. The Standard Libelle was superseded by the Hornet. The changes consisted of removing the flaps and tail braking parachute, fitting a fixed, instead of retractable wheel and raising the height of the canopy. A new Wortmann wing section was featured and terminal velocity dive brakes were fitted. With a change in the Standard Class rules, the H-201B of 1969 introduced a retractable gear and a water ballast system as an option. Other improvements in the B variant were larger upper surface dive brakes, a larger stabilizer for better low-speed handling, PVC foam sandwich core for the wing (instead of balsa) to increase durability and profile accuracy. The canopy is unique in that it has a catch that enables the front to be raised by 25mm in flight to provide a blast of ventilating air instead of the more conventional small sliding panel used for this purpose. This model with its fiberglass fuselage and its fiberglass reinforced, balsa sheeted foam wings can handle full aerobatic pattern. The careful use of composites with competition balsa, creates a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time. One of the unique features of this ARF is its wing construction. The wing is foam core balsa sheeted with both fiberglass and carbon fiber reinforcing. The leading edge is actually fiberglass. This gives the Libelle performance characteristics similar to a fully molded wing 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.

The Libelle was a very popular and influential design in the gliding world, now is your chance to own a piece of sailplane history. The careful use of composites with competition balsa, creates a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time.
