Default WTB December 1974 Model Builder Magazine and 2761-A Dragonfly plans

I am trying to locate a copy of an article to build the Model Builders plan#2761-A DragonFly. It is a powered glider (or looks like it). I am looking for the magazine it was in and then info on buying the plans.

Thank you.

Dragonfly #2761 plans, as are all MB plans are available from MB Editor Bill Northrop, (702)897-7775; [email protected]. Last price I have is $15 and as with all MB plans, a copy of the original article is included.

Tell Bill that Eloy sent you. Luck, Eloy

GREAT Job, Bucky!

Let us know how it flies!

It looks like a pretty easy flyer.
Bigger then the picture!

I did get the plans from Bill but did not get a copy of the article.

I was just looking at the build thread and flying blog at
http://www.thebuildingboard.com/2009...ark-flyer.html

Someone did post that the original article was in the Feb 1976 issue of Model Builder Magazine and also in the October 1996 issue.

The Dragonfly was one fun plane. Iflew on in the late 70's and early 80's. I had an Enya .09 on it. We nick named it Miss Twiggy or just Twiggy. It would just buzz around slowly for a very long time.

Landing was a breeze as the long springy wire landing gear would plant the thing firmly on the ground. It seemed like the landing gear would just reach down and grab the ground then just roll to a stop.

I would like to have had ailerons on this bird but know they would have been very ineffective!

This plane does bring back memories.

I still have the wing section from my original. The wire wing harness got corroded and rusted so Itossed them in a move or two. I was looking for the plans to build another fuselage and tail.
