Hi Robert,

I'm glad you found this thread! I haven't changed the basic design, since I was too lazy to be bothered with calculating the new CG. With the current drawing, one knows pretty much for sure what to expect.

The only experimental thing is controlling it. Adding a rudder isn't that much work, and if it doesn't work, one can always choose not to use it.

A landing gear would be nice indeed. Bend some wire, make the former out of ply, and expoxy them together. Add some nice light balloon wheels, for a real vintage look! (I would prefer a tail dragger)

I'm thinking about posting a scan of the original Duplex delta article from the 1959 Aeromodeller here. What about the copyright on a 47 years old magazine? (Does Aeromodeller still exists?)
