The Depron Eagle -

This was my first attempt at a scratch built depron model. I had seen pictures of the EPP Eagle, (a kit), and always fancied another 'bird' having built an Eagle style glider some years ago.

The base of the wing is 6mm, then a balsa spar was added, triangular 6mm ribs, (not many), then a 3mm top skin. The joiner dowel is 3mm carbon rod in ally tubes, the wings butt together and a small piece of clear tape goes across to hold them. The wings are then rubber banded to the body.

Contol is via the V-tail ruddervators, (rudder and elevator), and is very affective.
