L-325 Flarecraft plans? Anyone have them?

I was looking at WIG planes and saw the flarecraft. I thought it looked cool so I thought, "hey, that'd be sweet to build an RC version." Anyone do this before?

Thanks!

There is a large Lippisch on the interX site http://inter-ex.com/english/iexoverview1.htm

Very cool. Yeah, I think the Lippisch L-325 is pretty cool looking because of the way the wings met the fuse. But the X-113 looks pretty darn sweet as well! Did you make that or is that just pictures you found?

Sweet! That's pretty cool too. Looks almost like the X-113

What search did you use to find those?

Btw, are the wing tips just for aileron control? That would make sense but are they used to case more of a vortex at the wing tips?

Looks a lot like a ground effect design. The exhaust system makes it look like an ultra-light. Weird.

JIm, excellent link..very informative. The Flarecraft is termed a failure, but no denying its appearance !
