A tailless glider from the 1930:s. The plan was published by Otto Maier. In Sweden, plans were distributed by Wentzels. Lennart Wahlquist, who built the model in 1942, tells that it was difficult to start with a towline. Usually, the model got off the line too early, which resulted in a rotation along the wing axis which persisted until the ground interwened.
