    Zat de lijst nog weer even te bekijken en heb de Amigo even aangeklikt, want die blijft een beetje mijn aandacht trekken.

    Grappig wat er dan bij staat als tekst.
    Ook grappig en misschien niemand opgevallen dat de versie 1 de stabilo voor het kielvlak heeft en de latere versies allemaal er achter. \

    En dan de opmerking van dat iedereen dit toen een lelijke zwever vond maar toch zo populair was omdat het model toch iets speciaals had en denk nog heeft. Moet wel bekennen dat de Amigo 2 op mijn te bouwen lijst staat.

    About this Plan
    Graupner Amigo. A-2 Nordic class glider. Designed for either FF or RC flying. Wingspan 70 in, wing area 430 sq in.

    Quote: "Introduction: Amigo is a model sailplane conforming to the A-2 formual, designed for flying for fun. As a free flight model it achieves good peformance, but will be much more fun when flown radio-controlled.

    You'll find hints for the installation of electronic gear and mounting the engine on a pylon in the appendix.

    Building instructions: After getting familiar with the assembly of the model by careful study of the plans, cut out all printed balsa parts witha well-sharpened knife (indent No.10 or 15) or a razor blade, and saw out all plywood parts with a scroll saw. Cut out planking parts (15) and (32) amply oversize.
    Fuselage: Cement formers (2-5) into cut outs of the base plate (1) and attach planking (6). Insert hooks (8) into keel (7) and secure by doublers (9). Cement keel (7) and false formers (10-14) to the bottom of the base plate (1). Fit planking parts (15) and cement to frame.

    Carefully splice the four fuselage longerons (16) and (21) and cement two of them to each of the likewise spliced two top and bottom fuselage planking parts (23). Fit and cement fuselage cross braces..."

    Glad to see a plan of the Amigo I published! For us air mad kids in the mid 1970-ies to early 1980-ies, the Amigo I and II were the 1st contact with R/C sailplanes that could be seriously thermalled. Opinions about them were mixed: Whilst everybody accepted they were good and forgiving sailplanes, we thought them to be "so ugly they had a strange beauty of their own."

    Tsja... definieren is lastig, maar het is net als met sex: Zelf doen is toch leuker dan toekijken...
