The Duo Discus XL builds on the success of the Duo Discus line.

 The fuselage is the same as the Arcus, providing an extra 6 inches of cockpit length.  The addition of winglets to the tips improve upon the already legendary handling and performance. Also new are landing flaps that deploy automatically with the spoilers to reduce energy during landings.  This combined with a new hydraulic disc brake system allow the Duo XL to be landed and stopped in a shorter distance.
