Free Glider Setup Stand Plans

Tailwind Gliders is happy to provide FREE plans in .dxf or .pdf format of a Glider Setup Stand. Available on the Files page.
Thanks to my friend Jim for helping with the nifty quick install/removal interlocking system.
This really helps when programming your transmitter to keep the flaps and ailerons off the ground.

Happy Thanksgiving
Curtis

Found the .dxf file to be blank. The .pdf is OK.

Try zoom extents or zoom all depending on the CAD program you're using.

Been there, done that. I have AutoCAD 2013, if this was drawn in some other ver.
it may not read it. I'll try a .dxf reader.

There are many options for .dxf, what version? Any suggestion of another format to use? DWG, EPS? I can put all kinds of versions in the zip package,

Thanks for your help and interest.

They opened fine for me in TurboCAD v15. I had to "Zoom to Extents" to get it to show up - this is pretty common for DXF though.

A new version with very slight modifications will be uploaded later today. I will put several different versions of .dxf in the zip file.
This update ever so slightly changes a few things to make the interlocking mechanism work more smoothly. This is all from Jim Loughran who has tuned up the design via CAD and has been CNC cutting them the last few days.
