Searcher Flying Wing (oz7562)
About this Plan
Searcher FW. Radio contol sailpane model.
Quote: "Hi Steve, Herk Stokely recently sent me some designs and drawings by him, David Frazier, and Mark Kummerow, along with permission to spread them around. These are from the 90s ...Hi Mary, here are some files for Mark Kummerow's Searcher Flying Wing. If I'm not mistaken, the original was done in Generic CADD, I'm not sure when. Unfortunately, Mr. Kummerow isn't with us anymore. All I know about this design is in the plan itself, though perhaps I could ask Herk Stokely about it. I've translated the Generic Cadd (.gcd) into Visual CADD (successor to Generic CADD, I think), dxf, and pdf. I also threw in an XPS."

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

User commentsHi, Do the rib patterns match up with the plans? I have checked each one and it seems that they do not, being too long. Nice plan though and very interesting. It looks as though the centre section is untwisted. I have one on the board now which is 170 inches with a centre section untwisted. The outer section is twisted to 8 degs with a further 3 degs aerodynamic twist. It seems too much to me but I hope that my numbers are correct. I wonder if there will be a tuck under problem with all that washout!! The model is electric launched. Regards,

* 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.
