Starling HLG (Hand Launch Glider) by Neil Collins
26 Jun 99 - Oops, forgot this one
Built in 1988, from RC Model World free plan. I later built a second fuselage powered by a Speed 400 direct drive motor. This model was great as a glider, but not so good as an electro-soarer. If only I knew then what I know now - it only needed a gearbox to work well. The numerous knocks on landing took their toll on the fuselage and eventually I had to stop flying it. I still have the wing and will be experimenting with the SlowMoWatt fuselage for outdoor flight.
It was only when I came across the wing the other day that I realised I'd forgotten about it. I couldn't find any photographs of my model - this drawing is from the plan.
