ACE mini foam wings available! Who has plans?
 
eHobbies.com has the restocked the Ace foam wings. I just ordered a set of each. Very reasonably priced! Below are the descriptions and eHobbies part numbers.

Thunder Tiger ACE R/C Mini Foam Wing (Tapered) - AS6073
Thunder Tiger ACE R/C Mini Foam Wing (Constant) - AS6074

Have at it! I'm going to build a guppy glider and perhaps a 1/2 stick. Does anyone remember the 2T? Who has plans?

Goldsticker, I think I still have a copy of the 2T plan somewhere in my storage unit. This is the 2 meter T tail glider I'm thinking about, correct? I'll PM you as soon as I get it dug up. Prop

Prop,
You are thinking of the Midwest Lil' T, the Ace one is .049 and 1 constant chord center section and 2 taper section outer panels.
Standard tail, pretty basic, kinda cute/ugly basic trainer.

No, i think prop is thinking correctly.. the HOB 2T glider. 2 meter wingspan, 2 channel, T-shaped tail.

ah, i see, there are two 2T's... well, how about that.. haha..

still, if someone has plans for the center section to make the wing on the HOB 2T longer to increase the wingspan to 96", i would love to see it :)

It's good to see them back in stock finally. Goldsticker, I'd like to point out that these will also work with the DNU!.

Nothing, it was designed in. The built-up wing is just a built-up version of the Ace. Clipped to the right length of coure.

RE: ACE mini foam wings available! Who has plans?
 
I am building an Ace 2T from the drawing in this thread. I have everything cut and assembled for the fuse and tail feathers, can anyone tell me what the correct dihedral is for the outer wing panels? The drawing in this thread measures 11 degrees which calculates to roughly 3.3 inches. Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks,
Chap

Here's the Scalpel I built earlier this year using Ace tapered wings. Built from a "pre-production" kit from Select Hobbies. Skaliwag might have plans available. It's a nice flying bird that's similar to the old Simple 400.

November 1974 Model Builder has a one page plan for a Cessna 150 that looks kinda neat.  September 1979 RC Model Builder has a Cricket with a two page plan that looks almost as neat.  It is kind of a profile trainer type.  They both have the Ace wings.  I am not really sure how to scan them and send them or if It is a legal thing.  I know there were a lot of plans in magazines in the 1970's with those wings.  I am sure I could dig up more.  The Cessna said an .049 to .09 but not for beginners.  If someone bugs me I could try and scan them.  I just got a new printer that seems better than my old one if I can figure it out.

I'd like to see them. I have a 152 and the airfoil is not any thing like the Ace offering. No wonder it is not for the weak of heart

Well it took a bit to figure out the scanning but now seems almost too easy. See if it loads.
