BD-5 family drawings

<< < (2/14) > >>

The BD-5S did fly as can be seen in the photo on this page from the 1978 Janes World Sailplanes.
Apparently it was difficult to control, the tailplane and wing being too close together, and so the project was not continued with.
The data also says that the aspect ratio was 12.88.

Ah well, a case of differing references yet again.

The long wings come in the LS kit, and it says they're for the powered version too, so maybe they did put an engine in it eventually?

Then of course there is my model of the BD-5S which has been in this state of uncompletedness for a few years now.

Wonderful! Thanks a lot! :thumbsup:

Would extending the body of the BD-5 allow for better stability, with or without long wings?
