I built the Woodchuck from a short kit provided in Australia. As it's so light I decided to use traditional Tissue and Dope covering, so with the combination of that and modern, super light radio gear it flies wonderfully on the slope.
Photos attached [pics 003, 004] show the completed model, and I added wing tips from extra fins in the kit. I've also build a straight dihedral wing to see if it works as a small SDLG. Thanks,

Nice work. What is the all-up weight?

@SteveWMD the flying weight with polyhedral wing is 157g, dihedral wing is 155g. I guess difference is the huge winglets! Heaviest part seems to be the 4 cell NiMH 800mAh receiver battery I'm using as a nose weight...

Got it. It helps me to make a mental note that it flies well at that given weight. Many 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.
