DG-1001M - Der doppelsitzige Eigenstarter

Quality, performance, safety and all-round capabilities have always been the most important characteristics of our well known DG-1000 family since its roll-out. With more than 300 units sold, the DG-1000 family is flying in all areas of gliding. For us it was a logical conclusion to run this successful model through an update now.

With the DG-1001e neo we present the world’s first double seater in serial production powered by the well-known and popular FES system.

The glider will feature new 20m wingtips with neo-winglets as a result of numerous successful aerodynamic projects that we conducted together with Johannes Dillinger during the past years.


  • FES system by LZ Design
  • 30kW brushless motor with foldable propeller
  • Generation 3 LiPo batteries (16S, 75Ah, 8,9kWh)
  • FES control units on both seats in series
  • New 20m wingtips with neo winglets
  • 790kg (1.742 lbs) MTOW
  • Maiden flight in the beginning of 2020
