"Wristocrat Sr." 2 meter


1.4x scaled up version of the Top Flight Wristocrat.
s3014 airfoil, RES, 36 oz.
I kept the basic planform from the original but adjusted the dihedral and increased the tail sizing based on the spreadsheet at:
http://www.tailwindgliders.com/Files.html

Broke the wing on launch Mid-Sept. 2012.
Repaired the wing and built a new pod and boom (golf shaft) fuse. Weight dropped to 35 oz.

Monious,

Nice! A friend of mine had a Wristocrat when we were in Germany in the late 80's, wonderful flying HLG. So how'd the spreadsheet work out for sizing the model? Does it fly similar to the HLG version?

All the best from Montana.
