New Twinkle Plans Arrive!...


The latest updated plans for the Twinkle have arrived. These include some minor corrections and improvements to the design and updates for the instructions to make them clearer.

The new depron version of the plans also arrived. These depron plans were developed from scratch with just the outer dimensions of the original as consideration. All the parts are made specifically for the depron build and as such create the exact same plans as the balsa version in an aerodynamic sense.

...you can also build a balsa/depron hybrid from the balsa plans. By using depron for the fuselage and tip floats, you get a plane with the raw builders charm of the balsa build, with the durability of the depron (the depron can take a lot of knocks about the fuse and tip floats without creating leaking problems).

The plan sets are available from my site... http://keyboardmonkey.com/twinkle

...most of the movies aren't great as it's hard to get the videographer to come out and play, but you should be able to get the idea
