|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.|
