Default Aries 1960s Glider

Hi All,

Does anyone one remember a classic free flight glider by the name Aries, from memory about 2 meters wing span with polyhedral. I don't know who designed it, might have been late 50s early 60s. My father built one and adapted it to a single channel escapement version.

Would dearly like to get a hold of some plans and build one, can anyone help.

Kind Regards,

Paul

Hey Paul,

Did you build this one?
I have the planes and am about to start cutting wood.
