DG developed the 15-meter Class DG-200 from the Standard Class DG-100 series using the same fuselage and tail, but with flaps and a reduced wing area. After more than 100 DG-200’s had been produced the improved DG-202 was introduced with a one-piece canopy, automatic trim, modified airfoil, automatic elevator hookup and new cockpit interior. DG subsequently produced add-on wing tips for the DG-202 (known as the DG-202/17) increasing the span to 17m. –202/17 details are shown in parenthesis.
