About this Plan

Everest. Free flight towline glider. Canadian design. For either sport or competition flying.

Quote:- "Easy to build 47in span A/1 glider for sport or contest. This is the seventh and final design of a series of small towline gliders that have been developed over the past four years by David Andrew, a Railroad Telegraph Operator at Campbelltown, New Brunswick, Canada.

Although construction is a little unconventional, and the model bears several unusual features (thick trailing edge airfoil, triangular cross section fuselage, the combined auto-rudder/trim tab.) it is completely functional and devoid of frills or novelties of any kind. Incorporated design features make trimming a mechanical routine, and a beginner should be able, if he follows the building and trimming instructions carefully, to produce a model that will go to the top of a 164 ft. line with a minimum of fuss, and remain aloft for two minutes or more, which is an above average performance for such a small glider.

Since the wing is the most important part of the model, we build it first. Cut the ribs from 1/16 in sheet and begin construction of the centre section by pinning the lower trailing edge strip..."

* 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.
