Thanks Marvin, I actually do not have the plans, so I am going to scratch build a glider very similar to the Bug. I will probably keep all the dimensions the same but just build it with a mix of the original techniques and my own.

It is such a small glider it should be fun to try and see how it comes out. You could do both and compare them and let everyone know how it does.

I have used this airfoil on several 100" and 2 meter gliders through the years. Any thoughts on how this might compare to the original airfoil used on the Bug? > > Paul LaChance > Virginia Beach, VA > > > > [Non-text portions of this message have been removed] > [Non-text portions of this message have been removed]
