My Model Contributions

I've flown R/C for over 30 years the first fourteen years were wet power type planes and the rest have been solely electrics, slope soaring and thermal duration. The Discus Launch Glider (DLG) bug has struck hard the last few years.

Here's the articles I've written for Radio Controlled Soaring Digest:

1) Sailplane Calc Review
A compilation of Sailplane design and component sizing calculators

2) Tinamou
A 95" thermal flying wing build with free plans

3) Building an Automated Foam Wing Core Cutter

Curtis, I've been using your Sailplane Calc and Flying Wing Calc spreadsheets for years now, and want to thank you for contributing them. But there are two items missing that would help complete the designing: a yaw stability calculator for Flying wings, especially for planks, and a suggested stability factor or balance point for conventional planes.

Thanks again for contributing to the success of many sailplanes!
