Straight-Up CLG Article and plan
Description: Straight-Up CLG Article and plan from Model Aviation magazine, August 1995

The wingspan isn't on the plan but according to the fuselage dimension it looks to be 15 1/4 inch if everything is the same scale.

The fin could be a little high. I reduced the fin to 1 5/8 inch

Thank you

Thanks. Can you confirm that distance between the wing TE and stab pointed edge at its LE is 8 and 5/16" ? Looking forward to making it soon.

If you enlarge your drawing to a 3 inch wing chord. The fuselage measures 17 1/4 inch from behind the black nose that represents the clay or lead ballast to the end of the finger grip.

Wingspan 15 1/4 inch. Cord 3 inches. Polly dihedral break 4 5/8 inch, wing tip 3 inches

Tail moment 8 3/8 inch. Nose 2 3/4 inch. Stab 4 7/8 inch 2 1/8 inch. Fin 1 7/8 inch high 1 5/8 inch.

Great little glider, Have Fun
