My Favorite Model Builder Articles by Dave Thornburg

Dave Thornburg has been recognized by the RC Sailplane enthusiasts from the beginning as the leader of Hand Launching sailplanes. His many articles appearing in Model Builder magazine gave this discipline of RC Soaring the notoriety that any new phase of model aviation needs to become popular. I have long been a fan of Dave's articles and designs and produce a larger version of his Sunbird hand launch design.
