Default Scale Sailplanes

Hi All,
I finally finished posting my video clips from the Vancouver Aerotow held May 23-25, 2003.

You'll find 9 videos and a page of pictures.

Enjoy

Nicely done. I appreciate all the effort in putting it together - but then you do have the help of the best computer system

airbus,

Love the pic - do you own the Schweizer (?) TG-2 sailpane in the front? If so - I have the MAN plan and there seems to be a little detail missing (for the set up of the wing struts). Also - any idea where I can get three views and colours from? If not - thanks for the pics.

Hi Brinesharks,
Yes it is my TG-2 and it was built from the man plan. I changed the wing struts to be functional and lessoned the wingrod support. Seemed to work fine as I was unable to pull the wings off in-flight.

Also i used the laser cut parts pak from Bob Holman. Nice parts that made the project go quickly.

You should be able to find quite a bit of TG-2 info on The net. For a nice three-view try the Martin Simons Book.
