Default Coaster Dynasoar Centauri Full Size Plan Set

I've got three full size, 1:1 scale, plan sets. 2 sheets each, approximately 24" X 36". Free to the first three who PM me. Just pay for the shipping. Hopefully, I can just slip them into a shipping tube (rolled as opposed to folded). Can be used to make an RC version.

The original design and materials were very optimistic about making it R/C, but Tom blakeney last year did one in depron which is light enough with modern equipment to make work which afaik are the first to actually get a successful version to work. There have been several built as free flight that seem to work ok. The ventral fins pose a problem on landing unless a soft grass field is used.

The plans actually call for a "skid wire" to keep the nose from "piling in" upon landing. I could never get one trimmed well enough to fly.
