Default Free SR71 Free Flight Glider PDF

The attached PDF file has the SR71 Habu model that is a free flight glider model. Once made it is around 28 inches long, it is not to scale due to flight issues.

Next post will include the instructions.

Make this one out of 65# through 110# cardstock (Vellum Bristol 65-67# or Index 90 to 100# works best if you can find it).

Cover 65# is almost as heavy as Index 110# so be carefull when looking for the better choices for cardstock mentioned above.

A couple of photos to show it flying. Climbing right turn model is an early version while the SR71 Habu is a 4 ft long version of the 28 inch model PDF file you can download and save!

Largest flown as a free flight is 6.5 ft long! A 4 ft 7 inch model was created for R/C flying using EDF and electrics...

Next post will include 5-part instructions PDF's.

Merry Christmas!
