Free Glider Plans


I'm sort of new here and was wondering about a free flight small solid glider for my first glider build - or glider in general! I was looking at the Flicka but i thought it's tail looked weird. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

How are you going to launch it? Makes a difference. You might try the free flight section elsewhere in RC groups.
You will find some very nice instructions for building wood wiings here:
The Apogee is meant for RC, but the wing's construction is typical free flight style.

Lots of glider plans here, including the Flicka:
A number of interesting glider plans here, but you have to register:
Following are ff dlg types, perhaps slightly larger than you want, but interesting:
More plans, including some a bit smaller:

Free flight gliders are usually easy to make but hard to trim.

Thanks, but...

Thanks lincoln. I actually havent posted here in awhile - obviously! - I have already built the flicka. It looked really good. I might post a few pics if I get around to it. For my next glider build, i think I might do a rc rocket propelled one. that would be fun!

-currently looking into either a aqua cat or icon a5.

Thanks for posting-I'll look into it anyway to see if I get a POW or something.

Really interesting topic!
A few weeks ago I started to build free flight glider (in particular Catapult and Hand Launched Glider) and I have downloaded some new interesting plans!
Thank You for sharing those links!
