    Building the old David A-1 (John Thornhill – the magazine article quoted the poem “High Flight” by John Gillespie Magee – “Oh! I have slipped the surly bonds of earth and danced the skies on laughter silvered wings…”) – The plan was published in a magazine back in the mid to late 70’s.

    I have only a partial set of plans at this point!

    Can anyone find and relay to me the the dihedral angles for the wing? It was a polyhedral ship

    The plans show 2″ on the main panel and 41/2″ on the tip there is also 1/2″ stab tilt for glide turn.
