The Lone Blue Plaid Flyer
Bob Cook's Avatar
HI Palo,

WOW, that thing is HUGE !!! The cord is very wide also. I can't wait to hear how it flies. Thank you for making it blue. The wing looks like honey comb in a bee hive. (sorta) I like it.

Theres only 148 of them there.... They cross each other 622 times. Every cross requires 8 drops of cyano glue... You can have a guess how many mililitres that is

Hi Palo,

That is a very beautiful design. I love the look of the rib pattern in the wing. Very nice.

What a light structure at 1459 gr. Palo! That's impressive, to say the least. My Chrysalis 2M ended up at 1004 gr. and it flies nicely...I can only imagine how wonderfully that sailplane will fly.

I've got a spare NEU 1105 lying around here - from an old Pulsar, and I've often wondered what I should put it in. Do you have any ideas?

Please let us know how it goes when she's airborne. I'd love to see her fly, but will have to wait for pictures, please?

Thanks,

Rob

Please be patiente... this is test model, but we will prepare smal serie of basic parts for club members and friends. First will be ready parts for small Bolero CCW 2500 (100"), then for Bolero CCW 150". Set will contain laser cut ribs, pod for the fuselage, tail tube and -maybe- some other small parts.

Best regards
