L'enfant Terrible du RCIndia




I would like to offer 4 different models of basic balsa gliders. These are chuck / catapult models. The prices are slightly absurd in today's world, but then, if I get them cheap, I sell them cheap! The same models are sold at 2 to 3 times the price at hobby / toy shops. That is, if they are sold at all nowadays! Moreover, these sellers do not supply the adhesive tube as a part of the package. Courier will be charged extra on actuals.

I am sorry, I don't have the actual photographs right now, so I'm posting a picture which is an indication of the models in question.

These are the good old NCC type kits that we learnt from, in the days gone by. Sanding work will have to be carried out to create the aerofoil shapes. Each glider kit comprises approximately 7 - 10 pieces of pre cut parts, plans, sand paper, elastic band and an adhesive tube.

Basic models :

Auster   -  19 cm wingspan - Simple Dihedral wing - Rs. 60/-
Boreas   -  23 cm wingspan - Simple Dihedral wing - Rs. 70/-
Eurus     -  33 cm wingspan - Tip dihedral wing - Rs. 90/-
Zephyr   -  37 cm wingspan - Polyhedral wing - Rs. 120/-

These models can be easily converted for micro RC flight, if you have the knowledge.

Each model will be securely packed to avoid any breakages in transit. I am expecting my first stock of 100 gliders around the last week of August. First come first served.

Please PM me for further details. Please help me join the elite band of Aeromodelling Outlets in India! Giggle

Regards,

VC

Why don't you name them instead of A, B, C?
Those little gems deserve a name!

Haven't thought of a nomenclature as yet! Let me think up something.......

Thanks Flyingboxcar, I will name them Auster, Boreas, Eurus and Zephyr - the Romans personified the winds with these names based on the 4 cardinal directions.

A reliable (DTDC, Blue Dart, Overnite) courier would charge around Rs.100/- for 2 gliders, I guess. As I said, courier prices will be on actuals. Some couriers may charge as less as Rs.50/- if the package weight is below 100 grams.

Check out this site, it is an indicator: http://www.firstflight.net/domestic.asp

Thanks for the interest Nehal. Posting some pics but they are only indicative. The completed model may differ a bit but it will be nearly similar to the pictures.

Wonder how I can add this to the "mega list of RC stores in India" Smiley  Should I just add this as "The Chuck Glider Store" ? Wink

The terms Polyhedral, Dihedral and Quadrihedral can be a litle confusing, so I thought that I will post a diagram to explain the wing patterns. Hope this helps.

PLEASE note that the images are only indicative and that I will post pictures of the actual product, the moment my samples arrive. I am expecting them in the next 2 or 3 days.

Please bear with me till then and keep the enquiries on. It is a GREAT feeling. Thumbs Up

Cheers!

Anwar Sahab, that would be an honour for me. "The Chuck Glider Store" sounds apt. Let's do it! Bow Bow Bow

VC, the last two remind me of the Hunter and Yellow bird
On the terminology part, the word poly means many/much
Wiki defines it as  "Having multiple dihedral angles along the wingspan" see http://en.wiktionary.org/wiki/polyhedral?rdfrom=Polyhedral
so both the C and D would still be techincaly defined as polyhedral

Yes you are right, especially the Yellow Bird. The Hunter would be similar to the Boreas (I hope). My first ever aeromodel, way back in 1974/75, was the Hunter. Good old days....................

These terms were dictated by the manufacturer of the kits and I had no reason to argue with him. Anwarulhuq was kind enough to rectify the terminologies. I had requested him to post the correct terms here.

According to him - Auster, Boreas are 'Simple Dihedrals", Eurus would be a "Tip Dihedral" and the Zephyr would be a "Polyhedral".

Inspired by your encouraging responses, I just finished designing a template for the The Glider Shop.

Anwar Sahab had suggested "The Chuck Glider Store" and the idea germinated from there. However, I modified the name slightly as I am including Catapult Gliders now and will soon be including Rubber Powered Models and Tow Line Gliders. One of the Tow gliders has a wingspan of nearly 52 inch. It will also be priced very economically.

Please let me have your comments. I wanted the template to have an old world charm about it.

After a lot of coaxing and cajoling the courier personnel, I finally managed to release the samples of the gliders. Posting the pictures of the 4 model kits. I wasn't expecting something world class at these prices and I am not disappointed.

These kits will be nostalgic for those who were into the hobby in the 70's and 80's.
