Qsc 100!

Dennis and I decided that we wanted a "Beater" type glider that was fairly inexpensive, something like my QSC 32 inch 3 panel poly, but bigger so that it could be winch launched.

!00 inches would work out well. 4 , 24 inch panels plus 2 inch tips would give us 100 inches. Why 24 inch panels? The foam comes in 24 X 96 inch sheets. I decided on AG 24,25,26 airfoils going on what is recommend by the Charles River Radio Controllers web site. And that the wings would have 1/8 X1/2 inch wooden spars. Also the glass would be attached with Minwax Polycrilic rather then vacuum bagging.

The fuse pod would be from 1/8 inch lite ply and the boom was to be a golf club shaft.

The tails are just smaller version of the wings, but have .060 carbon rods for spars. The rudder also has a balsa spar that is the front half of the hinge line.

The V mount is made of aluminum , the first one is of .045, but is serious overkill, next will be redesigned and of .025.

The wing will be 3 piece, with 1/4 inch plate 6061 T6 Aluminum cut into a chevron shape. My 2 Meter has 1/8 inch plates and it can take a full pedal launch, so these should be OK

I've been texting Dennis pictures as progress is made . I'll try posting them here. The are not in any special order And the build sequence may seem a little different, but this is what works for me.
