Schempp-Hirth Arcus

sh-arcus
 
The Arcus was developed using an all-new wing design with full-span flaperons mated to the “L” cockpit design, as used on the Duo Discus XL. Designed by Tilo Holighaus and Christoph Wannenmacher, the Arcus first flew on 7 April 2009 at the Hahnweide airfield.
 
The Schempp-Hirth Arcus is a flapped two-seat 20m racing class glider of all composite construction, with optional water ballast. This two seater is as agile as a single seater and equipped with flaps.
 
It is available as a pure glider, a sustainer version Arcus T using the retractable Oehler-Turbo (Solo 2350) engine, and as a self-launching glider Arcus M using the Binder (Solo 2625) powerplant system.
