Duo Discus QQ

I purchased this beautiful two seat high-performance glider in 2015. The glider was built in Germany back in 2002. For many years this glider flew with the contest number of "KS" on the tail. After I purchased this glider, I had to sand off the "KS" logo and replace it with the QQ logo you see now. Back in the KS days, this glider served in many contests and winch launch clinics at Eagle Field in Port Matilda, Pennsylvania

The glider only gained 10 pounds from the installation of all this extra equipment.
