CLOUD WEAVER model airplane plan

CLOUD WEAVER

R. L. Wick's CLOUD WEAVER

I designed this foam trainer after many attemps to fly other "trainers" all of which were not really trainers. After becoming more skilled recognized
from sites that neebies needed more direction in terms of building a
successful plane that would be forgiving and really fly.

Then there were the plans of those planes with no directions as to how to
build the plane, and where to get the parts. The plans for this plane are in pdf tiled with a 30 page step by step building manual with parts list and
where to purchase the parts.

"Cloud Weaver" is a trainer glider with very forgiving characteristics. She is a slow flier giving the new piolet time to make corrections in a slower
fashion. Hands off transmitter and she will self correct. She is very
capable for the more advanced flyer to thermal. She will stay up for 20 min with a 1300 3s and longer gliding around.

Note: The complete step by step manual is uner the "article"

COVID19 Notice:

If your orders placed during the COVID pandemic are delayed the reason is the reduced number of airline flights and your national mail service not distributing mail as it normally would, please ask at your local post office what is the delay currently, we just can´t tell you any better than they.

The feedback from US customers who ordered during April and May is that orders are being delivered in about one month and a half. If you ordered Priority mail you can use the tracking code I added to the Paypal transaction at the USPS (or any other mail service) website.

Order Queue:

Current queue for new orders of 3d printed kits is 2 months. (Starting on the 20th of June 2020)

For printed plans there is no queue. Prints are posted next business day.

What are you ordering:

You are ordering a print from the main PDF file in this listing, it´s exactly like taking this file in a thumb drive to a local print shop and ask them to make a print.

About the plan source:

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.
In doubt please ask us for an opinion.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale this 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.

You will receive:

  • Laser Printed plan on good quality Bond paper or/and Tracing Paper and/or Polyester sheet of the PDF file from this listing, depending on what you have purchased.
  • Rolled sheets, up to 5 in the same cardboard tube.
  • Envelope, up to 5 sheets per envelope.
  • Articles and Instructions if they are available and if you order them.
  • Air Mail, Priority, Priority Insured or Normal mail, according to your choice.

About our printers:

We use professional quality laser OCÉ and Canon printers/copiers, these printers use toner, not ink so the printings will be durable and waterproof.

About the different media types:

Bond Paper: White Bond paper, 80 grams per square meter.
Bond Tracing paper: Bond Tracing paper, 90 grams per square meter.
Polyester film: High quality polyester sheet incredibly durable, will resist cuts and glue and can be washed (I use it as sail material on my RC sailboats).

Pricing:

We charge by print length (914mm or 91,4cm or 36in. by the length of the print)
This means that a plan 120cm by 150cm will be charged two times 150cm because it will be printed in two tiles, a plan 91cm by 150cm will be charged one time its length or 150cm and a plan 91cm by 40cm will be charged 40cm.
The system will try to fit a plan in the 91,4cm of the printer width in order to reduce the costs or print length to the maximum. This is the same charging method used in any printshop.

Packaging:

We will use paper or waxed paper padded envelopes for folded plans and hard cardboard tubes with plastic ends for rolled plans, depending on your choice.

Shipping:

We ship from Portugal, Europe and use the reliable Portuguese mail system CTT.
CTT has delivery agreements with different entities on each country so if you´re from the US you may have your order delivered by USPS, in the UK may be Royal Mail and so on.
Orders are dispatched on the next or second business day after purchase.

Postage:

We charge according to the ctt.pt postage table.

My first type of plane. Slag on 22/10/2016 04:45
I made something similer years ago and put a 049 Cox on a ontop, tucked under the wing mount Rubber bands.
CLOUD WEAVER Lee3429 on 29/10/2016 15:26
Thanks for your thoughts. Yes years ago one would have likely used an .049 however with the new electric builds this plane was designed to have a long flight time and will thermal very easily. I have had her up for well over 30 min and still had battery left.
If you decide to build this plane you will be pleased with the outcome as it is truly a reliable plane. I am still flying my original.
