Twelve Ka-10 gliders were made toward the end of the Ka-6 production run in an effort to compete with the early glass ships being built then. They had more or less the Ka-6e fuselage with a slightly different nose profile, while the wing had more ribs and thicker sheeting that extended further back the wing and a Wortman airfoil. The result was a delightful flying glider with slightly better high speed performance but slightly less performance in the low speed range. L/D is listed at 32-1. Schleicher then went back and built the Ka-6e to complete the production run.
