Hey guys, I figured I'd post this here just to stir up some activity in the sailplane section.
Back in 2006 - 2007 I scratch built a Harley Michaelis Genie open class sailplane. More info about the design can be found at http://augiemckibben.tripod.com/harleys_genie_line.html

I also did a series of articles for RC Soaring Digest, which are still available in PDF format:

Fuselage contstruction, starts on page 21
http://www.rcsoaringdigest.com/pdfs/RCS ... 006-04.pdf
Additional photos: http://www.justplanechris.com/genie/part1/index.htm

Empennage construction and fuselage finishing, starts on page 9
http://www.rcsoaringdigest.com/pdfs/RCS ... 006-05.pdf
Additional photos: http://www.justplanechris.com/genie/part2/index.htm

Wing construction, starts on page 25
http://www.rcsoaringdigest.com/pdfs/RCS ... 006-07.pdf
Additional photos: http://www.justplanechris.com/genie/part3/index.htm

Wing construction continued, starts on Page 13
http://www.rcsoaringdigest.com/pdfs/RCS ... 006-09.pdf
Additional photos: http://www.justplanechris.com/genie/part4/index.htm

Distractions, starts on page 20

Conclusion, starts on page 45

I sold it a few years ago, but it was a fun experience. :thumbup:
