About this Plan

Slinger. Tailless chuck glider model.

Quote: "Slinger, by Earl Cayton.

For initial flight set elevons 3/8 negative at each tip; use 1/8 left rudder; add clay to nose to bring center of gravity to point shown. Add or subtract clay to obtain long, smooth glide; adjust rudder tab for gentle left turn. Slinger should be thrown with quite a bit of right bank, causing a sharp right dlimb and then 'S'-ing out on top into a left glide. If model dives or climbs too shallow on throw, add a bit more negative to the elevons - 1/8 in at a time. If she loops in the throw, reduce the negative angle 1/8 each time. As you adjust the elevons, add or subtract clay to retrim the glide. After model is adjusted, spot-cement on each elevon to keep it from bending. "

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.


This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
