Mountain Models Majestic tail plans


After getting nowhere with Mountain Models I'm once again asking for Majestic tail plans. I have the rest of the plans but I still need the tail plans to get info from.
If anyone can help me with this it would be great.

Thanks in advance.

I built a Majestic several years ago. At that time, there was considerable patter about modifying the basic design. The most concrete ideas came from Prof. Mark Drela at MIT. I incorporated all of his suggested changes such as changes in dihedral angle, wing tips, use of carbon fiber, and lightening and lengthening the tail feathers. My Majestic came out about 8 ounces lighter than the original design. The plane flew beautifully and proved out the value of the modifications. Unfortunately, I ended up flying someone else's plane in a thermal. My Majestic flew away and crashed hard.

If anyone is interested, I may be able to dredge up Mark Drela's suggestions.

Another thread on the same topic is under "Thermal". I just posted a summary of the mods that I did.
