About this Plan

Phoenix Flyer. HLG glider model.

Quote: "Record Breaking Glider, by Bob Brawner.

I have flown this design in many contests and have always done well with it As you know, a glider is a type of model plane which takes lots of work in getting it to perform right, despite its simple appearance.

This is a better than average design because I flew the same ship in both the outdoor and indoor events at one National and won first in outdoor setting a new record (of 16: 44.6) , and also took third in indoor - with the same plane.

I won the magnificent Tulsa Glue Diabber's Perpetual Trophy for high time.

For the construction, pick out very light wood for your wing and tail and be very careful when you sand to make all parts even.

The body should be bass wood: it's strong yet light. Use two very thin coats of sanding sealer and sand lightly after each coat.

Your glider should climb to the right, pull out to the left and glide to the left."

* 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.
