"Eut Tileston's Tailess Bipes

Eut sends the following Pix. The first is from Model Airplane News of January 1947. The text of the article reads ..
The 30 in. tailless biplane in No. 6 is an original design of Eut Tileston, Mesa View Ranch, Craig, Colo. Atom powered, the model is very stable due to a high aspect ratio and 30 degrees sweepback. The lower wing has 3 degrees more incidence than the top, and each wing is washed out about 5 degrees . As Mr. Tileston's photo shows us the biplane has no landing gear, and flight is by hand launching. The little ship is a fast flyer, has good climb, a very gentle stall, but its glide is below average. Weight 11.5 oz,; 10 degrees dihedral is used."
Eut adds. "The spark was supplied by a home made lead/acid cell. The model flew well. It did not last too long as the acid from the battery soon destroyed the fuselage. Elevation of the flying site was 7000 ft (north of Craig, "


Also checkout one of his other designs on this page.
