1942 Flip Stick FAC glider
Description: Found this in an old Nebraska Freeflight news letter stack laying around. I think it would qualify for SAM event OT HLG. One of the few polyhedral designs from that period.

Designer's Name

FlipStick was designed by Louis Bucalo; if you look closely at the trailing edges of the bird wings, his signature is there.
I've seen at least one more of his designs somewhere but location eludes me today.

Thanks for commenting on the plan. I would not have noticed this. Hope to build it for old time HLG events.
