Potential Glider Builder

Hello all and thanks for letting me in.
I must confess that I joined so that I could glean as much free information as possible prior to perhaps building an RC glider during the coming winter months.
I'm retired now having flown around the sun 72 times and after looking at old photos of my father and his home built free flight gliders got me considering ...
The only trouble is I quite fancy a model that I suppose is now classed as vintage namely a Lazy Bee. So sourcing full size plans is part of the puzzle to be followed by getting my head around the new RC frequencies.
Now to start scanning the forum, notebook ready.

Take a look at either of these site`s for the plan.
Any questions I am sure one of the learned members here will help.
Now if ever I saw a contender for a "Mass Build", this would be it!!

I joined the forum for the same reason and found a wealth of information that was freely shared. Which lead me to build a Ballerina and I am about to start a Fournier RF-4.
We are all here to help you enjoy the experience and most importantly to have fun.

Welcome to the forum Brian.
The Lazy Bee plan and instructions are on Outerzone together with other variations of the design and of course loads of other plans too.
Whether the Lazy Bee is the best model to learn to fly on is another thing. Could be better to start with a kit such as Coyote from SLEC
or any of the recognised plan built trainer models.

Thank you all for the welcome.
Kevin, yes that is the beastie, although originally for powered flight it seems to make a reasonable slope flyer.
KC, thanks for the links, I'll check out that Coyote.
