About this Plan

Schulgleiter SG-38 (Primary Glider SG-38). Radio control scale model glider. WIngspan 68 cm.

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Quote: "Hello Outerzone-Team, I wanted to publish a plan I created for the Schulgleiter (SG-38). Specification:

Scale: 1:16
Wingspan: 68cm (27inch)
Weight with RC-equipment: 80-90g

This plan is to be printed on a A3-page.

1,8g Servos are strong enough to work the rudders (If they have smooth, easy motion, CA-hinges are recommended).
The CG should be pretty much exactly at the tip of the 'Tension Tower' of the glider. I had to add 15g of weight to get the CG correctly.
You can use either 0,2mm fishing line with pulleys or a steel wire to operate the rudders.
Also use a 0,2mm fishing line for the bracing. (0,2-0,25mm is the correct size for the scale).
The suspension of the landing-skid was built with blind rivets (2,4mm diameter, 8mm length) and springs (3,2mm outer-diameter, 12mm lenght, 0,3mm wire).
Stapler needles were used to create the eyelets, which holds the bracing. Just shape them like a 8.
21g Japico was used for the Covering.

I recommend adding an engine, as the unaerodynamic design quickly loses speed in flight. This has about the same glide-ratio as the original, so don't expect long flights. Best regards,


Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

    ScaleType: This (oz15368) is a scale plan. Where possible we link scale plans to Wikipedia, using a text string called ScaleType.

    If we got this right, you now have a couple of direct links (above) to 1. see the Wikipedia page, and 2. search Oz for more plans of this type. If we didn't, then see below.

    ScaleType is formed from the last part of the Wikipedia page address, which here is
    Wikipedia page addresses may well change over time.
    For more obscure types, there currently will be no Wiki page found. We tag these cases as ScaleType = NotFound. These will change over time.
    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new/better ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

* 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.
