Default Alcyone 3M - Looking for Manual

Hi All,

I just bought an Alcyone 121 kit. Looks like the kit is complete, except for the manual. I'm hoping someone might have an old one they might be willing to part with. I'll gladly pay any postage. A scanned copy would also work, if anyone would prefer to go thorugh all that work.

Thanks,
Allan

A public thanks to Gerard who very kindly scanned and e-mailed me a copy of the manual.

Thanks again, Gerard ... BTW, sorry to hear of the demise of your Alcyone. Any chance she might be repairable?

She was repaired at least 15 times over the years any more patches and epoxy would have pushed the weight too much.
I got home and found a wing crushed under the garage door and the fuselage in 3 pieces. She was hanging in her usual spot when I left that morning.
Somehow the door emergency release rope wrapped the wing and it pulled the plane down when the door closed. This pulled the hangar right out of the ceiling.
and it all hit the concrete floor, the door was opening between a wing and the ceiling. This worked fine for many years [sm=confused.gif]

There is a combination review and construction article for the Alcyone on the Northeast Sailplanes site located here:

Hopefully you will find some good info there to help with your build.
