Description: An efficient conventional glider with glueless assembly, ideal for looping flights and long glides.
Solid Layers: 2
filament use / weight (3mm) : Approx 1350mm
first layer lentghwise (0 degrees to fuselage), altrenate by 90 degrees. A 45 degree (or non right angle) axis will cause asymetrical wing warping under load (bad).
Allow to cool before carefully removing from build platform. The wings are easily deformed during removal, and must be absoultely symmetrical for proper flight. Removal with a very thin plastic spatula (print one!) is preferred. Test fit all parts and trim if necesary prior to final assembly.
The dihedral joint is assembled by clamping along the top of the fuselage between the wings with the dihederal clip to establish dihedral angle. Clip is most asiliy installed one corner at a time mid chord and then slid fully foreward into place. Remove any adhesions, test clip and adust as necescary prior to assembly to achieve a symmetrical dihedral angle.
Insert (snap) the hook into the canopy one end at a time, pointed canopy end and open jaw of hook facing the same direction. Snap the hook / canopy assemby into the fuselage.
Slide tail into place being sure to insert the pitch adjustment tab into the elevator slot.
Launching is by hand or with a 1/16" to 1/8" rubber band.
Test and adjust by hand launching first.
A slight elevator - up reflex is required for non-inverted flight. This is accomplished by adjusting the rudder locking tab to less or more engaged in the fuselage. there are two settings and a latch to prevent unwanted movement.
A gradual test/adjust cycle is recommended. To correct turning or spiraling, differential elevator control (elevon) is preferred, though some aileron bending may be needed if the wings are warped from improper bed removal. Carefully bend this in with finger pressure, but avoid creasing or excessive strain.
