Plan file details

Wanderer 72. Radio control soarer. For 2 channel RC. Wing area 553 sqin, Weight with radio 25oz. Quote: "Hi, Steve. Please find attached the plan for the Wanderer sailplane. This is the original, 72in version designed by Mark Smith and kitted by Marks' Models in the mid-1970s. No rib templates shown for the tapered portion of the wings, but any capable scratch builder will figure things out. Back in 'the day' one could get into R/C soaring for less than $100, with a Wanderer kit and a cheap two-channel radio. Very easy to build and repair, the Wanderer probably got more people into soaring back then than any other design." Direct submission to Outerzone. Update 22/08/2018: Added PDFvector plan tracing and dxf CAD file, thanks to AlanSinclair. Quote: "Hello, Sorry it took longer than expected to get the Wanderer 72 plans straighten out ... I rearranged the plans a bit and added a fin and rudder mod that I did on my Wanderer. Have a great day. Alan" Direct submission to Outerzone. Update 16/10/2018: Replaced dxf CAD file with a revised version (filename ending in v2), this is purged of all links to external files, thanks to AlanSinclair.
