Series / PD-15 Beechcraft D17 Staggerwing by Rich Weber (Laser Cut)
The Staggerwing is an American biplane introduced in 1932.
With an atypical negative wing stagger, the
lower wing is farther forward than the upper wing.
Laser cut kit PD15 Beechcraft D17 Staggerwing was designed by Rich Weber, whose building and
flying skill can only be surpassed by his modesty and generosity to the Flying Aces Club. We
have but a single photograph of Rich's Staggerwing as he cradles the newly completed plane.
It seems all he does is build, fly, and then watch it go OOS (Out of Sight).
There are pictures of blue sky and Rich's confirmation
that it is his plane going OOS, but that's all.
This Laser Cut Free Flight Rubber Powered Flying Model includes a CAD drawn full-size
rolled plan, building and flying instructions, hand sorted competition weight laser cut
balsa parts, balsa sheet wood and strip wood, E-B propeller, EBM thrust bearing, FAI rubber motor,
and Easy Built Lite yellow tissue with black LaserCal™ markings.
You will need a hobby knife, fine sandpaper, building board, and glue.
