Cessna CG-2 glider, Primary Glider discussion.

I’m looking for scale 3 view drawings of a Cessna CG-2 glider so I can build a radio controlled scale model.

If you can help it would be much appreciated.


EAA AirVenture Museum, Oshkosh, WI http://www.airventuremuseum.org/coll...2%20glider.asp


Museum of Flight, Seattle, WA http://www.museumofflight.org/aircra...na-cg-2-glider

No need to limit the discussion to the Cessna CG-2, what else is out there?

Thank you

Paul

Looks a lot like an sg 38, if you could get nice clear square on pics you could scale it against an sg 38 3 view and redraw what is different.
Just a thought Rossco

At my site you may find several photographs of such type sailplanes.

Like a fool I took almost no pictures in those days. Now I am seldom without a camera or two or three, but seldom get to my old field, or any other.

Yes, carry always a camera with you!

I think the Cessna type is a copy of the SG38.

As was the Northrup and probably a half a dozen others around the world.

I emailed the Museum of Flight, Seattle, WA to inquirer about 3-view drawings for the Cessna CG-2, this is their response to my email:

“Dear Mr. King, There are no known drawings of the CG-2 in existence. Over the years the museum and our staff have also searched all sorts of sources with no luck. About the best we can offer is a 3-view of a very similar German glider from the time. Since they only built 300 and they were sold through a catalog, we don't really know what happened to any engineering drawings. You might try the EAA Airventure Museum to see if they have received anything in the years since they published there aircraft drawings database. You might also get in contact with the National Soaring Museum in Elmira NY to see if they can be of assistance.”

Looks like I'm going to draw my own "stand off" scale plans.

Looks much closer to the earlier versions of the Zogling than the 38. I think the 33 with the vertical post behind the pilot or the 29. I have a 1/3 scale 33 nearly ready to fly ( a copy of two that were built in New Zealand in the 1930s by Dannevirke Gliding Club) and its been a problem getting it balanced as the nose length is so short. My pilot weighs about 1 1/2 kg with nearly solid lead legs and some of the torso as well as another nearly 1 kg under the seat and all around the servos inside the nose. The 38 has a raked post to position the pilot further forward making the balancing much easier. Rob.
