Question

New sailplane


I just acquired this plane.
Owner knew nothing about it.
Does anyone recognize it?
Can tell me anything about?
Thanks, anaD

Maybe?


Looks like:

Ron Vann Spectrum "standard tail" fuse.

Ron Van and D Perkins investigations into multiple hinge lines on flaps and ailerons. (They worked together for a while).

That's my guess

Did they work very well.... Yes - both Ron and DP were really good at designs and flying It was fun to watch them both in action....

I am not sure, that I am 100 percent correct, about the glider - but just going from what Ron Vann told me when he read your post. Seems he recognized his fuse.

You may want to PM or Email Daryl Perkins.

I remember that plane. It was Ron's he took it to the F3B team selects in Albuquerque New Mexico.
Don't remember the year maybe 1999 or 2001.
He would have been on the US team but I think he got a phone call from his wife and left before the last day of flying.
