A later and larger successor to the D.31 Turbulent of 1951, the D.62 Condor was similarly a low-wing, wooden-framed monoplane available as a licence built product or as a home build from plans. The D.62 was, like the D.31, built under licence by Rollason in the UK from 1961. Variants include versions converted for glider towing.

 

First flow in 1961, the D.62A was a pre-production version of which two were built.
 
The D.62B was the standard production version.
