The Gambler-AG includes the following improvements:
- AG36 airfolis
designed by Mark Drela
span to 50" to maximum allowed span for limited class competition
laser-cut wing hold down assembly
polehedral for better turning response
trailing edges for easier assembly
rib design to allow flush D-tube and center section sheeting
rudder mounting position for straighter launches
like to thank Mark Drela, Oleg Golividov, Phil Barnes and Northeast Aerodynamics
for their help with most of these improvements.
Gambler-AG is a discus-launchable hand-launch glider (DLG) made
of built up balsa and composite material construction. It has been designed
as an affordable alternative to the more expensive all-composite discus
and side-arm launch gliders available today. The Gambler-AG
is a hobby-class airplane for those who wish to enjoy the sport of high-performance
DLGs without the high cost.
With a wing loading well under 4 oz./ft.2 and the ability to
side-arm launched easily to heights of 80 feet or more, The Gambler-AG
gives you 80 percent of the performance of the all-composite DLGs at 25
percent of the cost and makes a great transition plane from built-up mosquito-class
DLGs, such as RCM's The Bug, to the all-composite competition class HLGs,
such as the Risk, Texas Twister, Taboo, etc.
The kit includes
full-sized plans, a comprehensive instruction manual, four sheets of laser-cut
balsa parts, two sheets of laser-cut plywood parts, balsa stick, sheet
and trailing edge stock, laser-cut light-ply formers, pushrods, Du-Bro©
hardware, fiberglass cloth, Kevlar© cloth, carbon fiber
boom and iron-on carbon fiber ribbon. The wing should be covered with
high-strength lightweight covering such as So-Lite or Oracover light.
