This has been my glider no. 4. My Friend Alfons Härtl,who lived in the States for some months in 1979, managed to send me 2 sails and a construction plan. Ooops,all in inches and AN standards. Well, after 3 other gliders built from plans ( Valkyrie ,and 2 Rhoenadler ) it wasn´t too complicated.
The 210E was available in 2 sizes. We had selected the 183, means 17m² at 10,5m Span.
The Sensor at that time was "the ultimate flying machine".
Bob Trampenau has been the inventor of curved flexible wingtips. Despite the fixed crossbars (floating crossbars )and big span it was easy to roll, in the begin we tended to overcontrol..)
It took about 5 years until other manufacturers such as Moyes copied this concept.
The Sensor is still alive, thanks Howe&Bainbridge.
I flew it recently. Well, compared with actual beginner gliders L/D is similar, but it handles like an oceanvessel.
