English: Horten craftsmen built this Horten III h, Werk Nr. 31, in 1944 at Göttingen. Uncertainty surrounds the subtype designation 'h' but the glider probably first flew as a two-place Horten III g, and then Reimar modified it into a single-seat glider, installed special test apparatus, and changed the designation to 'III h. During September 1944, Josef Eggert of Zimmer Unter den Burg, a small town near Rottweil, Germany, flew the unmodified III g twenty times and amassed 14 hours and 17 minutes of total flight time. Eggert reported excellent handling qualities but he apparently chose not to grapple with adverse yaw because he commented specifically on the very tight, but flat turns that were possible using only the drag rudders. Eggert warned that stall recovery was good but only when the aircraft was properly trimmed.
