Lo Stregone (oz9075)
About this Plan
Lo Stregone 60. Radio control towline glider model. This is a modernised re-drawn plan based on the earlier Medicine Man (oz10422) design.
Quote: "Old style sling-shot glider redrawn from original plan by Maurizio Maggi."
On the internet can be found the plans of MEDICINE MAN (the original version) and the plans of LO STREGONE (the Italian version). I liked it and I have scratch built two models of it from plans. I send you few photos of both [model photo & more pics 003-005].
Direct submission to Outerzone.
Update 06/09/2018: added construction article, thanks to alcalaino; and ribs, thanks to Pit.

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

Lo Stregone is an Italian version of the original old-timer-looking glider Medicine Man, designed by Ryan Grosswiler in 2008 and later sold as a kit. There is a nice building article of a Medicine Man in the June 2009 issue of Radio Control Soaring Digest [see supplementary file], in which the wing airfoil is described as a 'Modified Selig 3016 at root, progressing to 15% Clark Y at tip', and very detailed building instructions can be found in Make Magazine https://makezine.com/projects/make-17/medicine-man-glider/. Here's a pic showing the printwood sheet for the wing ribs [more pics 006]. By the way, all RCSD issues to date can be downloaded for free at www.rcsoaring.com.

"Stregone" is the Italian for "medicine man". Here is the ribs set found on internet construction thread [see suppl. file]. In the original plan, ribs are shown in their position on the wing elevation view. Not in the Italianized plan: uncommon. Please check for true ribs dimension. The magazine's "MAKE" site had the possibilities to download the plan, but it doesn't work for me, but construction article can be seen. What we would not do for Anon...

* 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.
