The DFS Habicht (Hawk) was a fully aerobatic glider that was designed in Germany in 1936, in fact in the same year, 4 of these amazing looking Gliders were used to great effect in entertaining crowds attending the Olympic Games. Praise for the flying qualities of this superb and very distinctive looking gull-wing glider came from many pilots, perhaps the most famous being Hanna Reitsch.
This Habicht is a stunning scale glider, combining quality and classic good looks with excellent flight characterstics. The finish and construction of this glider are simply amazing, the supplied hardware is also of the highest quality. The model features a tough blow moulded nylon composite lightweight fuselage, plug in wings, hatches for air brakes in the upper wing, pull/pull rudder and so on. This H-King Habicht is an attractive and scale/vintage sport glider offers the scale glider pilot a truly superb model that is bound to draw admiration and attention wherever it is flown.
What is wrong with this plane??? I've been tempted to buy it a few times and prior the last Christmas there was very little in the way of discussion or chat and here it is 6 months later, I see the motorised version is selling in the UK for less than our non-motor version and again almost zero in the way of discussion or reviews. It's being pushed like mad by HK but nobody seems to be buying it. WHY! or rather why not. Do people know something I don't? I'm not a keen buyer if it's rating of 3 is based on just one person's response. I can't believe that few have been sold in the amount of time it's been available.
