Turquoise - Lightweight sailplane for either slope or thermal, uses Jedelsky wing construction.
Quote: "THIS model was built to test the effectiveness of the very efficient Jedelsky free-flight sections on a more highly loaded R/C model. After three years, its simplicity and easy handling have made it a favourite for the calm evening, marginal lift condition on the slope, and for light wind thermal flying. In the Peak Park, it's far easier to fly from the hills than to distinguish tow-lines from bracken; nevertheless, it's not incompatible to take the slope trim to the flat field if one 'knows' the model; in fact, Turquoise' first comp. flight (i.e. one where money and mouth are coincident), was only its third tow launch. So take heart if you happen to live away from the boring flatlands of the Midlands; a good trim is still a feasible ultmate, and can be obtained 'solo'..."

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
