About this Plan
Kookie. Towline and slope glider for single channel radio control. From Model Aircraft, April 1962.
Quote: "COOKIE was designed as a cheap-to-build, general purpose, R/C glider, for use for either slope soaring or towline operation. With an all-up weight of 20 oz, and CG at 55 per cent (standard trim) the model will average 3 min 40 sec of a 300 ft towline on a calm day and one flight of 25 min 18 sec was achieved off the local hill in a 10 mph wind.
Construction is conventional; the fuselage is designed around the Unitone receiver and Conquest escapement and, although it is of small cross section, there is plenty of space for the R/C gear.
Start by cutting out the fuselage sides and chamfer the sides at the joint; cut slots for formers F1 and F2 (making sure that they are not both cut for the same side!). Glue the sides together at the joint (over the plan side view) and carefully match them up. When the sides are dry, add the 1/8 corner longerons, bend the tow-hook and sew it securely to the 3/16 hard fuselage bottom..."

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

* 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.
