The DFS Kranich (Crane) was first flown in 1935 and designed by German sailplane pioneer Hans Jacobs (30/04/1907 - 24/10/1994) for DFS (Deutsche Forschungsanstalt für Segelflug), the research institute for sailplane flight. It was built by Karl Schweyer AG in Mannheim and was the most widely produced 2-seat glider in Germany between 1935 and 1939, setting the world altitude record for a glider of 11,460m (37598ft) in 1941, although this was not recognised by the FAI until the 1990's

The AP Models 1:5 scale model of this outstanding sailplane is highly prefabricated and makes an ideal introduction to scale glider flying.
A cream colored, gel-coated fiberglass fuselage accurately reproduces the compound curves of the plywood skinned original and speeds up assembly time considerably without sacrificing scale fidelity.
From the Solartex covered, fully built-up flying surfaces to the removable fiberglass canopy frame, the Kranich II exudes quality and practicality and by virtue of its plug-in wings and tail surfaces makes for an easily transportable model too.

The flying qualities of the AP Models Kranich II duplicate the docile manners of the full-size when set up according to the manual, yet still allow the model to remain nimble enough to perform the scale type aerobatics in keeping with the original.

High quality construction and careful design have been combined in the Kranich II to give a great flying model that is easy to live with and sure to draw attention wherever it goes!
