The Platz glider was a very simple, though unusual, collapsible canard glider designed and tested in Germany in the early 1920s. The Platz glider predated the well known Rogallo designs by over two decades. But in the same decade of the 1920s was a device that had also a high second deck: the Argabrite man-carrying device that featured a triangle undercarriage with wheels on the basebar. The Platz glider was intended to provide a cheap, easily transported, and simple to fly introduction to the increasingly popular sport.
