In 1957, the Akaflieg started with the motorglider project Mü23 'Saurier' (saurian), being the groups' second motorglider after the Motormerlin (Mü13M). It had a slow Mü-profile and thus was capable of taking off at very low speed (less than 50km/h), enabling the Mü23 to operate off extremely short runways. Following difficulties encountered with a VW1200- and a Brändl-ZB700-engine, a Volkswagen1500N engine provided satisfying performences. The Mü23 was popular with the Akaflieg pilots and participated in various competitions where it won several prizes. Today, the 'Saurian' has been overhauled after being grounded for years.

The plans are supplied for two diiferent sized models. Select your choice below
