This model was the winner of a design competition held by the Danish Aeroclub in 1948. It broke several danish records, but the import restrictions meant that hardwood had to be used. In 1950 balsa had become available again, and a revised plan was made and sold by Dansk Modelflyve Industri.
The designer himself, Jörgen Surlykke Petersen, won several competitions with his special Cleo, using a somewhat larger propeller (30 cm instead of 28 cm).
