Apogee sport

EMC's Apogee sport

The Apogee Sport is based on Dr.’s Mark Drela original all wood design of the Apogee. This a full Discus Hand Launch (DLG) redesigns to be a more economical alternative to the all composite Apogee line. The Apogee Sport provides with a high performance experience in a small package and price, with an All Up Weight of 4.0 oz, a thin and light airfoil, yet strong construction, this DLG can outperform many other gliders in its class. The kit is reinforced with carbon, and includes an all carbon throwing blade for maximum throwing experience. The AG airfoil offers excellent aerodynamics, while the out come is a stable yet a fun plane

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.

Plans Scaling:

We can scale the Apogee sport 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.

We will use brown padded envelopes for folded plans and hard cardboard tubes with plastic ends for rolled plans.

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.

Thanks for uploading!

I´ve changed the last text copyright link and lost the original, didn´t realised that you were using a cache page.

Great looking plane!

There doesn't seem to be any details of the carbon spars though, their size etc, and what are the two strips shown each side?
Apogee sport Sauchen on 04/05/2016 22:22
Ok, I understand, and I see the article.

Size of the Print Münze on 25/05/2016 08:55
In which size do I have to print it? A0?
Re: Size of Print koenraad on 25/05/2016 09:13
I just told the copyshop to print it at 100% and it worked out fine on a A1. It could be that 0.5cm of black space was cut of.
This is a kit version of a scratch built design lincoln on 06/09/2016 18:09
If you want to scratch build, I suggest you try the original. It flies amazingly well for it's size. The 30 inch is not as fun, but then, 30 inches is very very small for this sort of glider. Two caveats: for DLG, you might want to copy the tail size and type from the plan on this page, and it does involve a lot of sanding. However, the page links to a precision sanding method that works very well.
