Default Gear driven pitcheron glider/E-glider

Below is a PDF flyer for a RC glider that uses 3D printed gears to control the wings. The fuselage, gears, and
V-tail mount are 3D printed. The wings are conventional balsa covered foam cores and the tails are balsa.

If you click through to the Etsy link there is a short video clip from a tail cam on the E-powered version showing the action of the wings.

I redesigned the plane to use 3D printed wings and eliminated the foam cores. I put the original STL files free on Thingiverse if anyone is interested and can make their own wings

Servos are Corona DS-238MG (2). Spar is 8mm X 250mm and aluminum tube.

I sent you a PM with the wing dimensions. I tried uploading the PDF assembly guide which includes the wing plan and instruction but for some reason can't attach it here,
