Model Review by Mark J. Davies
The excellent book Sailplanes 1920 - 1945 by Martin Simons includes an excellent write-up, photos and scale drawings of this glider. A quote from the book, "Jacobs and his team had not imagined that even more extreme versions of the Habicht would be demanded. These were to be used for training glider pilots to fly the extremely fast, and highly dangerous, Messerschmitt Me 163 rocket propelled fighter which Lippisch, after departing from the DFS, had developed. The Stümmel Habicht was produced in two sizes, 8 meters and 6 meters span. These stalled at about 75 to 80 kph and were said to handle somewhat like the ME 163."
