1:6 Scale Schweizer SGS 2-32 Sailplane Plans Now Shipping

The plans are complete for the 2-32 in 1:6 scale, 114" (2.9 meter) span are now ready to ship and the laser cut parts and canopies as well as glass fuses will be ready in a matter of weeks. Not to late for Christmas orders if you don't mind getting the plans as a place holder under the tree while you wait for the full entourage to arrive in a couple of weeks.

1-23A slope or thermal foamie complete

Below that is the image of the prototype of our ultimate slope machine for the scale sailplane enthusiast, a 1-23A with removable two-piece plug-in wings and NO STRAPPING TAPE.

Plans for this model will be free of charge and available only through your newstand in one of the RC magazines or by fee throgh their plans service. 87.6" span (2.2 meters) 42" (1.1 meter) length, all up weight with 3-4 channel radio and servos less than 4 lbs (2 kilos) and wing area of 577 sq. in., SD7037 airfoil. Right now this one has nose release for aerotowing, rudder, elevator and full 1-1/2" wide x 21" long ailerons on each wing panel.

We have similar plans for the 1-36 T-tail in a 2 meter scale ship and the 1-26B in a 1.5 meter size. PM me for more information or a set of plans for scratch building. This is more complex than the run of the mill foamie, but no less durable and with any experience and a scroll saw, hot wire and stationary belt sander, the parts for this model are all made in a day and the assembly thereafter is very straitforward.

PM me for more information or plans and construction article for any of these sailplanes.

SGP 1-1 Plans Complete

I finally finished the drawings for the 1-1 primary from the brothers Schweizer in 2" to the foot scale initially and will start bumping them up for 1:3 scale.

I also found someone who may be able to cut kits of stick stock in all of the sizes required to build called out in the drawings plus die cut the gussets for all of the sandwiched structures and flying surfaces.

I've included detailed drawings of all of the hardware fitting for flying wire, wing, and tails attachment plus control cable and horn attachments. The plans will allow for a museum quality flying scale model for those who wish or you can dumb-down the design for a great little sport flyer.

Please PM me if you would like more information.

1-26B Plan

Tom,

Would it be possible for you to include a copy of the plans for the 1-26B woodie you're sending to me. It would be nice to see it's bloodline.
