Waco PG-2

RCModeller's Waco PG-2

The Waco CG-4A was the most widely used United States troop/cargo military glider of World War II. It was designated the CG-4A by the United States Army Air Forces,[1] and named Hadrian (after the Roman emperor) in British military service. Designed by the Waco Aircraft Company, flight testing began in May 1942, and eventually more than 13,900 CG-4As were delivered. Production PG-2A had two 200 hp L-440-7 engines, and was later redesignated G-2A in 1948, 10 PG-2s were built by Northwestern.

This plan of the semi-scale (sport-scale) Waco PG-2 was designed by Peter Miller "is a" "twin-engine sports scale powered glider" with the wingspan is 62 3/4 inches, a wing area of 500 square inches, 3 or 4 channel radio system and are ready to fly weight of 40 ounces (2 lbs. 8 oz.). The twin engines are two .049 - .074 nitro engines; the plans show two Cox.049 black widow engines. The construction appears to be straightforward conventional model airplane building with a built-up constant cord wing and a mix of sheet balsa and stick balsa fuselage.
