Poulin JP-30 (Revised - CG added)
Description: Peanut -semi- Scale by Bill Warner
from American Aircraft Modeler, June 1971

12-20-15 Note from Firefly:

The Poullin JP 30 plan was published without a Center of Gravity location on the original plan. I built one anyway and added a substantial amount of lead to bring the CG to the, time honored, 30% of wing chord location. The glide, if you can call it that, was nearly straight down.

I removed the lead and test glided it, as built with no ballast. It flew fine. I checked the balance point and found it to be as shown on this (revised) drawing.

I hope more people will try this little model. I cannot claim to having trimmed it to match its contest winning flights, but I promise this thing will fly well with the CG as marked. I have no idea why.
