Abstract:

The report gives the results of performance measurements and flight characteristic tests. The polar curves of the D 36 with several flap settings were gained by exact partial glide measurements and those of the BS 1 and ASW 12 by comparison flights side-by-side with the D 36. LD of 45 was reached. The flight qualities showed good stalling characteristics, good maneuverability, and a time roll 45 to 45 deg of about 4 sec. These high performance gliders do not demand extraordinary skill under normal conditions. Possibly there are some difficulties at high speeds. Author
