Hi Steve and Mary, I thought that I would try to see what this glider looks like. Have attached 2 photos of this weird bird [main pic, 003]. Because the file is 3D, any other view can be generated if desired.

Gene... with all the great work you've done for this site and so many plans, I would be the last person to question your depiction of this one, but the trailing edge (main pic) seems somewhat a bit too "straight" to me. Of course, this might be all an illusion because of the chosen angle. This is a highly swept wing, so again, not questioning your work, but... maybe another depiction at an angle that shows off the high sweep to good effect?

Hi Steve, there is a section where the trailing edge is not straight when you look edge on. Around 75% outboard to accommodate the strong reflex. At least that's how I modeled it. And, I have no idea how to build this model as no incidences for the airfoils were given.

Attached a 3 view [see pic 004, also as pdf, see supplement file].

Nice work, Gene, it does end up in quite an elegant shape. I myself was working on&off (mostly off) on rearranging the original diverse parts into a continuous wing - which was entertaining given the vagaries of the original drawing - but you got there first and with a fine 3D view too, so gold medal for you, and none for me :-)

Diffuser tips - cool! The inward angle of the anhedral break provides reflex and yaw stability all in one. Made a few FF like this and they can perform quite well. Also note - the Estes ARV Condor model rocket kit, now OOP, used this on a pair of parasite gliders.

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
