The Hirschel from behind


Mattias Hirschel placed first in the 1967 world championship with this model. In the fly-off, which took place in absolutely calm weather, Hirschel was the only one to make the 240 sec. max. The design is simple and straightforward, Hirschel explained that the only thing standing out was the wing profile used. The profile is quite thick, but nonetheless effective thanks to the turbulating effect of the wing spars. For best glide performance, the center of gravity was placed quite far aft at 65%.
