Bugatti 1.5m Balsa PSS Glider

Created especially for my friend John Woodfield. Please find attached my Bugatti 100P Slope soarer Glider design attached. Design notes and build Photo's by John Woodfield.

PSS Bugatti 100P Glider. Maiden Flight (1 min 52 sec)

Bugatti model 100 glider (2 min 19 sec)

Bugatti Glider (1 min 30 sec)

John has requested the following changes to be made, but alas I've not done them yet :-

> Put a hole in the cockpit cover between ST1 and ST2 for the flight battery to sit.
> ST1 2 3 4 are numbered back to front. ST1 should be ST4 etc.
> Don't need the wing trailing edge to continue inwards past wing rib 2. The wing is extremely rigid as is, and these dont add anything.
> The fuselage longerons don't need to go through the fuselage formers. Its too hard to build like that, and once sheeted the fuselage has loads of strength.
> If possible, can the other wing also be shown on the plan (from F2 outwards) so it doesn't need to be traced out.
> I did move the aileron servos out one rib but this was just personal preference and they are good as shown on the plan.

If you build and enjoy this plan, please send a paypal donation of 10 to - Thanks
