Turkey Vulture


Description:Designed by Bob Hoey, this bird-like RC Turkey Vulture uses highly effective wingtip aileron feathers to bank and turn the model just like a real bird. The model has no vertical fin or rudder but is very stable in flight. Built of balsa and plywood, the model is covered with MonoKote and has a drop-away dorsal fin for bungee high-start launches. It can also be dropped from another airplane. The wing is highly under-cambered and slightly reflexed. The plan shows the articulated wingtip aileron feathers in detail.
