    June issue is online
    www.rcsoaringdigest.com

    Highlights
    • The Sokol Glider.
      Uroš Šoštarič examines this postwar sailplane, circa 1947, and describes in detail the building of a six meter 1:2.53 scale model.
    • Egret and Kite - Two wood sailplanes.
      2 meter and 100" spans, designed by Tony Beck. An introduction to the overall design philosophy, a complete illustrated construction manual, plus links to downloadable full size plans (pdf).
    • How to lose or break perfectly good slope planes.
      Everything you need to know about avoiding catastrophic events on the slope.
    • Slope candidate - Bell X-2 Starbuster.
      Although it has a less than sparkling and some might say depressing history, slope soaring enthusiasts may find this aircraft to be well worth modelling. This would be especially true if an identically scaled B-50 could serve as mother ship.
    • Panelling a wing with plywood.
      Five videos describe the use of PVA and heat to mold a D-tube. Loads of fool-proof information in under a half hour. Videos downloadable from www.scalesoaring.co.uk.
