A glider designed and built by Hans Schmiterlöv. It was described in "Hobbyboken 1945" and had some unusual details like sparless wings and stab, fuselage formers of 2 mm carton instead of wood, dethermalizing by the means of two parachutes hidden in the cabin, which were actuated by a pneumatic timer.
