Dittmar Condor IV

08/31/2010. The Condor was a wooden high-wing glider designed and built in the 1930 by Heini Dittmar in Germany in the single-seat version I, II, and III, while the Condor IV two-seat trainer version was the last gull-winged glider produced. Between 1951 and 1954 the companies of Alexander Schleicher and Ferdinand Schmetz in Germany produced at least twelve, while an unknown number was produced in Argentina. The Condor IV wings, with Göttingen Gö 532 and NACA 0012 airfoils, are one of the thinnest used on wooden gliders.
