looking for plans for Jr. High project
My son's 8th grade engineering class has access to a laser cutter. The teacher was asking me if I knew of any plans for an RC sailplane they could build for the aeronautics section of the class. I am looking for glider with a polyhedral wing and a slab sided fuselage. Something like the old Gentle Lady, but preferably smaller. Does anyone have any suggestions? All I can seem to find are plans for pod and boom ships with straight wings.

Take a look at the Outerzone website. It has a collection of glider plans that are all free for downloading. I am certain that something there will work for you.

My vote also goes for a scaled-down Gentle Lady or a Wanderer. The latter is nice because the parts count is really low and once all the pieces are made the doggoned thing will almost built itself.

Do you have a radio or do you need one?
If you are converting one of the smaller free flight models, you can use one of the very light weight micro bricks that include receiver and servos. Prices range from $20 to $60. Range is typically less than 300 feet.
This one has a build in stabalizaiton system
This is Spektrum DSM2 compatible - lower cost
Tactic also has an integrated unit that works with the Tactic radios or the Tactic Anylink module
Hobbyking has one that works with their Super Micro radio
This works with the Micro Stick Radio
