Don't be sad Leeper. Everything I sell gets me a little more out of debt. Maybe one day I'll be back : )

Finally looking at building a SWE36 again - please can anyone tell me where I can find the up to date version of the plan?

The one on Discus Kid http://www.discuskid.com/uploads/7/6/2/7/76278509/sweepette36d__1_.pdf
and here in the builders gallery http://www.hippocketaeronautics.com/hpa_plans/details.php?image_id=3796 seem to be the original version.

Thanks
Jon

Simplicate & add more lightness. Keep sanding!

Hi Jon, this is Sweepettelee replying to your query.
FYI, you have found the latest, up to date, all be it the original, version of SW36D, on discuskid page.
My only recommendations are that the fin was a bit large, so wait til you test fly it before adding the basswood strip.
Fin size is a critical item to achieve best transition to glide.
Also, the nose length might be shortened some if you like.
I hope you have one of Stan's TLG bodies to use for your SW36D. They are excellent and really assist the build.

BTW, yesterday I saw Stan's new one meter "Raven" TLG design fly.  He sez it is his best yet & I tend to agree!
You might want to inquire about it...

Ciao, LEEPER

Thanks Leeper. No it will be from scratch. Are the ply sides 1/32"?

I plan on picking your brains when I start trimming Smiley

Thank you!

I can't recall...I think 1/32 ply. 
Oh yes Jon! I just recalled...
Look thru HP's TLG subject matter and search for Jim Buxton's beaut exploded view drawing of Stan's body! That may be the ticket for you...
I do not have any TLGs left because I cannot fly them anymore. I strongly suggest you send future queries to Stan.
Even more strongly I suggest you simply buy his kits. 
I know you are in UK, but I bet that you have mates who travel to CA for comps who you could cadge into being a delivery person,
so you can order from Stan and have him offload the bits to whomever when they arrive for Fab Feb comps, etc.
Good Luck

That's not good news Lee. I hope you are well and could perhaps return to flying gliders again.

Cheers

Thanks Lee  Smiley you're still the guru so all help is appreciated Smiley
I've been flying radio DLG for a while now but my FF experience is limited to a few chucks (and hooks  Roll Eyes) of Mick P's Butterfly's. He has more or less given up launching due to back trouble too sadly. He's actually flying rubber these days Smiley


Yes the exploded drawing helps, thanks. I have some really nice wood here so hope I can do a decent version of the SWE36D with radio DT. In the long run I would like to design a large one as we dont have a span limit over here and when it comes to DLG I seem to be able to launch bigger models higher than light ones.
