DG Flugzeugbau has developed the installation of a small tail wheel for LS7 and LS8 sailplanes.
The new tailwheel from Tost (150×30) is significantly smaller than the tail wheel installed usually (210×65). This helps to reduce drag and improves glide performance.
Older aircraft featuring a tail skid can be modified as well. TN7017 and TN8021 are EASA approved since the beginning of March.
Installation kits are available via our DG stock department. Please contact Samantha Klessig via firstname.lastname@example.org
