Short history:
Based on the M-30C/1 a new M-30C/1s Super Fergeteg version had been developed for the World Championship held in Leszno in 1954. The glider first flew in February 1954. In spite of her reduced mass compared to that of the M-30C/1, this version proved to be the least successful one.

Structure:  All wooden
The double tapered planform wing had a leading edge with a slight sweepback. On the flapless wing one-piece ailerons were fitted. The wing structere otherwise was similer to that of the M-30C/1.
The fuselage had an elliptical cross section and behind the main spar connections was similar to the double-seat versions (M-30B; M-30C; M-30C/1). The cockpit was placed in the fore part of the long fuselage nose and a bubble type canopy was used. In spite of the big canopy the forward visibility - especially during tows - had been limited, and for this reason the nose of the glider was modified in the beginning of the 60s.
The landing gear of the 1954 version consisted of a nose and a tail skid and a double wheel dolly was used for takeoffs. During the modification in the 60s a wheel behind the c.g. was fitted.
   Tail unit:
The tail unit of the version was similar to that of the M-30C/1, however the form of the console on which the horizontal stabilizer had been sitting was modified more than once.
