a Slingsby Dart

I have a full scale Dart T51 17 meter that I am rebuilding and wondered if anyone have done a 1/4 or 1/3 scale one? Also if anyone is interested in doing one I can get you pictures of mine.

Thanks,

Andy

Chris,

That is awsome! Thank you. The one that I am rebuilding was built in 1966 and had won a few contests there in England prior to making it's way to the US. I would love to own a 1/4 scale and be able to fly it when it's big brother can't. Thanks again for the video.


Andy

Andy, I produced a plan for the Dart 17R at 1:3.5 scale, details here:

Do share your pics of your Dart restoration with us, won't you...?

Slingsby Dart 17

Hi Chris

My father is near completion with the Slingsby Dart 17 but he is very keen to get the inside cockpit and control details authentic. We would greatly appreciate any help and/or advice that you could offer.
