Standard Libelle plans/3-views

Post by Nigel Argall »

Just thinking ahead for the next project (as you do) and think I might go down the 'modern' glass glider route for a change and would like to do a Libelle. Just trying to find decent plans and/or 3-views. There are some on the internet but of course they tend to be very small and it's not always clear where they come from. I have the Martin Simon's book somewhere which has 3 views and (helpfully) cross sections but.. I think they are only 1/50th scale so again, its easy to lose accuracy when blowing them up. Anyone got any ideas for places to access bigger scale drawings? Thanks as always!

Could be worth talking to http://www.streifly.de/bilder-e.htm as they hold everything available for Glasflugel designs (full size) to see what info they might be able to help you with?

I have a 1/3 Scale Fuz., canopy and a (very faded) three-view showing wing layout including sections. (You can read it)
As with most of my stuff, I've had it so long I don't know its pedigree but it yours if you want it. No money required but how to get it to you in these current conditions I've no idea.

Hi Guys, hope you don't mind me chiming in on the discussion, the fuselage is the 205 Club, I've flown the full sized as an airtest after repair... an absolutely weird glider to fly, no aileron feed back at any speed, you could go from stop to stop with no load on the control column from stall to VNE :shock: , the airbrakes were rotating trailing edge like the Mosquito from memory not hugly effective but well balanced, but definitely not an early solo glider... Any way Reichard models did/do, the 205 Club as a 4mtr model - http://www.reichard.cz/en/models/gliders/libelle/ One of our members Nimenta - Christian Walliser works at Glasfaser-Flugzeug-Service GmbH the support for Glasfügel gliders, he may be able to offer drawings of both the 201B Libelle and the 205 Club gliders.
Best of luck in your project :D

Thanks one and all! I was working out that that fuz Pete has wasn't the standard Libelle and had just about worked out it was the 'club' or 205? Thanks Antonia. I'd love to make this work so I will message you Pete.
