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, "Schleicher recognized the growing demand for cross country sailplanes and admired the Fafnir. He commissioned Hans Jacobs to design a simplified version which would be suitable for factory production and not prohibitively expensive. The prototype, called Rhönadler, was ready for the 1932 Rhön. (There had been an earlier Rhönadler, a record breaking two seater.)"
