Here are the plans for the little delta plane I was flying today, called the FireFly: http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=943610

I made mine with 6mm EPP for the main airframe and 3mm EPP for the rudder and airfoil step. No reinforcements anywhere, try to keep it light. I scaled mine to 11" wingspan, but it looks like there are 12" plans already available so I would recommend that.

FYI, I was getting together a list of people from the Propbusters who are interested in checking out side-arm and discus launch gliders. I plan to get everybody together this spring some time for a little intro day, and hopefully we can keep meeting up after that. If anybody is interested just send me a PM with your email address and I will add you to the contact list. Non-propbuster members are welcome to join in and I am always open for checking out new sites to fly my gliders.

Tim, I think I remember you saying that we were not flying some week in March. Is that this week, or are we on for today?

Tim, if you have them in stock coul you grab a P-51 motor or preferrably motor+gearbox to bring along? My old Sukhoi motor is just not behaving well and the delta needs a bit more speed.

Tim, could you bring me a P-51 prop today? If you happen to carry them I would also be interested in one of the adapters that lets you run small GWS props on the Parkzone gearbox.

OK on both counts. Do you have a copy of your rescaled "dart" plane plans? Both Dennis and I want to make them.

Do you have a schematic for installing/setting up the firefly brick?
