The Dove is a proven high performance Nordic A-2 glider. The model has placed first in all contests entered over a two-year period except one in which it placed second. Some of the wins have been with all maximum flights. The heart of the model is the wing airfoil. Designed to enable the model to take advantage of the lightest of lift no matter how close to the ground that lift is. The model is ruggedly built and extremely easy to fly in all types of weather.
Some plans do not have the most important details such as CG location, weights of component parts, types of construction, materials, etc. Some of these little but important details can make the difference between an average model and an outstanding model, performance-wise. In this article, you will find all the details and data necessary to enable you to have a model capable of meeting all competition.
The balsa wood used for construction of all components (except wing tip sections) is of medium weight and straight-grained. White glue is used for all wood construction. Nitrate glue or epoxy is used for all wire and tubing parts.
