The Reiher prototype was first flown in 1937. Hans Jacobs and the DFS designed and built a sailplane that emphasized aerodynamics and a thinner wing profile promising better penetration without sacrificing performance in thermals. Several issues were immediately apparent upon the maiden flight of the Reiher prototype which led to the quick evolution of the Reiher Mark II. The Let Model's scale version of this beautiful sailplane comes with the fiberglass fuselage and flawless finish in white or beige gel-coat. The canopy is removable with fiberglass frame and comes complete with a scale-like latch. The cockpit is completed with instrument dashboards and fiberglass seats, just like the actual plane. Releasable launch wheels as well as tow release are also installed. The wing and fuselage both have pre-installed wiring harnesses that also include multi-pin connectors for fast, trouble-free setup at the field. The wing is beautifully finished in scale like Solartex and ready for your aileron, flap and spoiler servos. The foam core, obecchi sheeted, composite reinforced wings are easily removed for transportation yet are securely held in place with Let Model's ingenious retention system. All these features give the Reiher II performance characteristics similar to a full scale airplane while still remaining very light and beautifully built. The synergy of low weight and strong structure is very unusual even in a custom production sailplanes 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.

This modern, scale model of full size DFS Reiher II with its fiberglass fuselage and its composite reinforced, obecchi sheeted foam core scale wings flies as well as full size sailplane originally built in 1937. The careful use of composites with competition wood creates a good light structure that will hold its shape for a long time.
