Hey Steve, Greetings from across the pond! I built this model over my spring break using about four sheets of foamboard. It’s a departure from the standard balsa construction, but it still resulted in a beautifully flying sailplane. Originally, I built it as a pure sailplane with elevator and rudder controls; but after several short flights, given that I fly in a field too small for a practical highstart, I mounted a Park 300 motor with a 8x4 prop on the pylon. Now, I can sustain level flight at about 1/3 throttle, and climb at about 30 degrees at full throttle. Here are a few of the pictures I took during its construction. Thanks for the plans! Keep up the good work!

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.
