Nach dem schweren Unfall vor zwei Jahren, bei dem der Chef-Testpilot ums Leben kam, gehts der Firma schlecht. Schade, die Segelflugzeuge sind klasse gewesen!

The gliders are excellent but this plane almost bankrupted the company. see the poor translation below.

Unfortunately is the nearly broke. To the heavy accident before two years, in which the chief test pilot died, ' s of the company goes badly. Unfortunate, the gliders were class!

You can now visit this machine at Munich's great Deutches Museum. Its recip engine tended to overheat, so more cooling development was needed. It quite a big machine for a four-seater. Had a deep stall problem at full flap: test pilot Ulli Schell could recover by dropping a wing to slip out of the stall - or retract flaps. vertical fin originally had bother upper & lower rudders, but eventually went to lower only. Lack of countering prop wash left the engine torque as dominant feature, thus demanding roll trim changes with airspeed changes.

Leider sind die fast pleite. Nach dem schweren Unfall vor zwei Jahren, bei dem der Chef-Testpilot ums Leben kam, gehts der Firma schlecht. Schade, die Segelflugzeuge sind klasse gewesen!
