Can you name this glider?

Hi,

Found this clip and I have no idea what the glider is plus it's got water coming out of it everywhere.

Actually the 1st one of the series (the reg number is a clue : D-KQIN)

http://www.rcawsey.co.uk/Quintus.htm

Edited to add that SH doesn't seem to be very proud of that glider : production stopped after 5 years (15 built) and it cannot even be found on their webpage, even in the history section...

Edited again to add that the Nimbus 4 can't be seen either (although it has been more successful) as the history section ends in 1994

Ok cool. Thanks. I thought Ventus but the 5000 water dumps confused me!

Interesting that only a few were built.
