The LS10 is a single-seat, high-performance glider in the 18 m class with flaps and the option of flying in the FAI racing class with a 15 m wingspan.


The LS10 is the latest development from DG Flugzeugbau in Bruchsal, based on the LS10 prototype developed by the former company Rolladen Schneider. Various improvements to this initial development led to the market-ready version of the LS10-s.


The wing is a new development, while the fuselage has largely been taken over from the LS6c . Changes compared to the LS6 are, for example, the serially installed mosquito cleaner garages and the Piggott hook .

All LS10-s were delivered ready for the engine. The tried and tested engine of the LS8-st with the DEI-NT engine control system developed by DG Flugzeugbau was used as a turbo engine in the LS10-st .


With the first prototype of the LS10, Holger Back , production manager and managing director at DG, won the German championship in the 18 m class in 2005. The LS10 is no longer in the DG range in 2018. A total of 19 were produced.
