This picture may have come from a thread on this forum; I can't remember. The plane is the Cleveland Condor. Does anyone know of a source of digital plans? (Found, thanks) Specs in this old post https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=781024

Edit: Plane is by Bill Schmidt, pictured originally in SAM 56 newsletter

Does anyone have a PDF plan available for the Celestrial Horseman? That's a real nice looking vintage glider.

Soft landings,
