Libellule MRA model airplane plan

Libellule MRA

Aerofred's Libellule MRA

This is a non powered Free flight, outdoor glider which is launched from a tow line. Interesting autorudder feature which snaps the rudder to the right once the towline releases. This right rudder causes the glider to fly in circles back to the ground.
A wire passes through the rudder. The right end of the wire is attached to an elastic band that is under slight tension and attached to a fuselage anchor point to cause right deflection of the rudder. The other end (left) of the wire is connected by monofilament line back to the pivot wire at the tow hook. When the pivot wire is held forward by the tow hook, the tension of the monofilament line holds the rudder in the neutral position during the tow. When the towline is released, the elastic pulls the rudder right.
Voilla!

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.

We can scale the Libellule MRA 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.

3D Printed Parts
Order 3D Printed Parts for the Libellule MRA

General Information

3D printing allow us to design not only complete airplane models but also parts to complete balsa, foam or even composite model airplanes.

Parts can be designed and printed to fit exactly a model you have or a model you plan to build, even if you are not building this model to the full size plan.

3D Printing, and 3D CAD allow us to create the actual parts to fit on our models but also allow us to create negative molds where we can make composite parts.

I´m adding this service to all the plan listings on the site knowing that not every part you imagine or need can be done, knowing this, jobs will be evaluated case by case and a price estimate will be given on request.

What can be done with 3D Printing:

  • Canopies
  • Cowls
  • Wheel Pants
  • Landing Gears
  • Wing Ribs
  • Motor Mounts
  • Servo Trays
  • Servo Covers
  • Wings
  • Fuselages
  • Complete Models

Full Models, Wings or Fuselages

It is possible to design a complete model for you but keep in mind that this is a lengthy process, many hours are needed to design and test a fully 3D Printed model. The finished model cannot have the same internal structure of the wooden made counterpart because it wouldn´t be possible to print it, it would have to have a structure like the models you can see in the 3D Printed Kits section of the site.

From the outside they are very loyal to the plan but still they have to be printed in sections, typically to fit a 250X210X200 mm cube that is the printer maximum build volume.

3D Printed planes are also heavier than light balsa models, all built up and ready to fly, with an electric power system they are generally a little lighter than the same model if it were powered by a glow engine. Please have a look at the 3D Printed kits section to have an idea on this.

Pricing

I will calculate a price upon request, please contact me here mentioning this PlanID: 98044 and the job you wish me to do.
