Cool
Gulliver

AMI (Aviation Modeller Int'l) went belly up but the publisher has kindly sent me R/C Model Flyer for the balance of my subscription.... I'm really just waiting for the return of the new Aero-Modeller.

In any event, this month RCMF featured the Gulliver. I'm not up on all the tailless semantics, but this appears to be a true Nurfluegel.

It does look like a great build but did you notice the price in the photo of the plan for a full size copy? That's $32.59 mailed to US. (this weekends exchange rate) And I thought RCMplans went knocking on the old change purse. Kind of has that B2 / F117 look to it, or is it just me?

Definitely a touch of stealth about it.
I can't make out the span on iPad.
Mags in general are having a hard time.I've subscribed to RCME for a long while,but get very little out of it compared to what I can find on here.There's a lot of info in the stack I have but if I need to check something I aren't going to start looking in them for it.

Looks like a built-up Multiplex Xeno. But "stealther".
Quite interesting indeed.
Where can I order the plan?

I've just ordered both the plan and the back issue.
I'll keep you noticed.

From the Pix furnished here in this thread I am CADing a version of this birdy for myself.
I'm thinking around 100" maybe I should go a full 3 meters

However, I am currently packing for a 2400 mile relocation so there wont be much continuity
of my efforts.

It is a very interesting design and I hope to be able to build one before winters' end.

I'll probably use a Marske Profile, like the one from the P3.

More as progress is made.

Looking forward to build reports too.

Bob

WE drove it several times and the milage varies a bunch depending on how you go
ands what you wanted to SEE on the way.
The great circle is reported in the left side bar if you've entered your location in your
personal area on RCG.

Not to mention I'll be gaining ~900' altitude too :-)
I all down hill after we clear the Rockys.
