Three foot lightweight tow-launch glider for Vintage fun
by Dave Hughes
DOOFA is a lightweight tow-launch glider, of low aspect-ratio, designed primarily for those all-but-calm summer evenings which seemed to abound in the late 1940s. It weighed just 2.1/2 ounces and utilised the special LDC 2 section, produced by the LSARA
This is an ultra-simple model structurally, and all the relevant details appear on the plan. Use light grade 'soft' balsa for all ribs and tips, but longerons should be of fairly hard stock, as should uprights and spacers.
