Wow,talk about mixed emotions!All that work,flying just right.....
Something similar when I was a kid,the local club president first flight with a beautiful 12' glider.It was making graceful circuits;higher and higher.I guess the d/t malfunctioned.Never saw it again.

Many years ago I had a 1/2A (049) Orbiteer FF model that after it DT'd continued to go OOS.

After that I used a DT that instead of popping the stab up it dropped a weight on about 50 feet of thread. The thread was attached to the tail, so the plane came down tail first, but when the weight hit the ground the plane would whip stall and then try to start gliding, when the string drew tight it would just settle down flat.

On a Nurflugel the thread could be attached at some point along the wing, perhaps at the leading edge and CG junction.

Yes, Stu... I spend hours upon hours!
Yet I could not do that if I felt it was a waste... lol
Actually, IMO, a properly structured pursuit would be the equivalent to a college education.
Perhaps better to make a comparison to doing graduate work...

I prefer the entertainment of the informal threads, anyway...
Many pearls within them!

Koen Van de Kerckhove was given a collection of pictures of the Horten H-xa that he's put up on the Nest of Dragons sight. Not a model but looks just like Andrés work, not quite as neat as his actually.

Zaic Sailwing by Dick Thompson. He gave me yesterday the kit for a 100in version sold by Klarich Kits.

Interesting but simple wing construction.

I think it's just called the sailwing in their catalogue. It's 50, 70 and 100 inch versions.

This seller on ebay lists many plans from german magazines for model plans, including many nurflugël. I've purchased from him on several occasions (plans and model railroad magazines), and had no problems receiving the stuff from Germany.
