Hello ensemble, recently a friend did propose the build of this plane, from a german magazine (FMT) plan: the SALy. So there was stimulus to put machines at work. I designed all the cut files for wood pieces, writings, grapics and a few 3D printed pieces too. Those include servo tray, nose cone, wing screw base and more to come. Four kits were cut for a club build. The prototype is now almost finished, so I thought about sharing the build here. Best regards, Ric
I bought several old balsa gliders from a guy that I think enjoyed building more than flying. The most interesting are two tailless gliders that are similar but not quite the same, one at 60" span (not flown) and the other just 36". They are around 20 years old (two Futaba FP-T5N Callenger Txs came in the lot), the method of mixing the elevons is mechinical at the servos. The link to the elevons are just rods out of the fuselage that sits between to rods out the end of each elevon. I've attached some photos below, does anyone know what they might be? Name? maker? and where the CoG might be - or where I should start with one? Hope you guys can help Tony
