White Trash model airplane plan

White Trash

Model Builder's White Trash

"White Trash" is a 120" span, polyhedral thermal duration glider designed by Rick Walters, an extremely talented sailplane pilot with r/c models and full-scale soarers. Rick designed White Trash while a teenager and "terrorized" West Coast model soaring competitors with his deceptively simple-looking glider, controlled by only rudder and elevator, and weighing a scant 40 ounces unballasted. As a 17 year old in 1972, he competed at an AMA Nationals against much more expensive and complex gliders that were sporting spoilers, flaps, and ailerons, and won the Unlimited event outright. White Trash features removable wingtips to ease transportation and would make a terrific sport thermal glider, and with a powerful brushless motor and Lithium Polymer batteries, would be a wonderful e-glider for fun or competition.

Rick took up full-scale soaring as a young man and became an extremely capable soaring competitor, winning five National Championships, flying on the US Team in four World Championships, and fulfilling major regional and national responsibilities as a senior member of the Soaring Society of America. This writer was fortunate enough to renew acquaintances with Rick in 2014 at an SSA 18 meter Nationals held at Minden, Nevada, and we chatted briefly about how White Trash got him started on his career as a professional soaring pilot. Rick was respected by his SSA cohorts as an extremely talented and skilled soaring pilot, totally committed to high performance sailplane flight. Tragically, Rick suffered a mountain biking accident in 2015 and passed away due to his injuries; more details can be found in the second info source listed below.

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.

3D Printed Parts
Order 3D Printed Parts for the White Trash

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: 99051 and the job you wish me to do.
