Snoopy model airplane plan


Aeromodeller's Snoopy

"Snoopy" is a sport free flight towline glider based on the " Rogallo" flexible wing concept invented by Francis Rogallo, a NASA aero engineer, back in the 1960s. The"Rogallo" wing concept has been used for hang gliders (powered and unpowered) as well as various specialized uses such as steerable air-dropped cargo payloads. The 42" span model, published in Aeromodeller in 1972, is utterly simple to build. The "box" fuselage won't take much time or effort to build, and the only structures required for the flexible wing are LE dowels - no ribs or spars required! The wing's plastic can be scavenged
from plastic trash bags. The article accompanying the plans provides full details on assembly and flight trimming for this most unorthodox flying machine!

You should verify if the source file has the quality for the type of construction you intend to do, we will print the file without any kind of enhancement or scaling. To know if the file is good please download it and open it on a pdf viewer like Adobe pdf viewer and set the view level or zoom level to 100% or 1:1 or full scale or actual size, depending on which version or pdf viewer you are using. Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Snoopy or any other PDF plan for you. But please keep in mind that if this plan is not vector, if you enlarge it too much the quality will be degraded.
