|Walter Jaburek of Vienna Austria
has scanned the complete Understanding Thermal Soaring Sailplanes series
written by Martin Simons and created a single PDF which includes all of
the articles. This series of articles appeared in RCSD starting
in January 1990 and ending in the November 1991 issue. There are direct
references to F3J, which had just been made an official event, but the
topics covered are easily related to all forms of RC soaring. Topics
include the sailpane polar, weight and ballast, turning, drag, scale
effects, performance calculation, moment arms and tail volumes, and
horizontal stabilizer considerations, along with numerous others. Well
worth the 5.6MB download.|
