Sorry, I didn't see this before.

Look at this website:  https://aerofred.com

You have to sign up but they have a lot of free plans for elliptical designs many of which could be adapted or modifed into a nice, elliptical profile model.

Don't let me stop you if it's what you really want, but "profile" and "training" means "should be easy to build" to me, and "elliptical wing" means "hard to build" to me...

You could always find an elliptical-winged full-fuselage model with the right wing design and build that wing, with the bellcrank position modified just enough to be suitable for a profile.

The problem with electric is that once you get the smoke generator and sound system installed, the plane is too heavy.

Take a look at the current home page at flyinglines.org. There's a great planform view of Pat Johnston's Epiphany, an elliptical
 wing and stab profile design. Pat has several elliptical designs in his plans list.

Of course the Bosta and the Missourian.  Two ways to put massive labor into a combat wing.

Here you go.  I tracked down a nice PDF of the plans for the Tiburon (profile Shark). 
The plans are attached to this post.  Enjoy.
Laser-cut, "Ted Fancher Precision-Pro" Hard Point Handle Kits are available again.  PM for info.

Thanks Brent,
It's off to the printer to see if he can work from it....

Hi Matt,
Pentland's wing needs to come up an inch and an increase to elevator area might get it closer.
If I can get a good copy, I will share it.

Sorry , i was on about the Yatsenko . Printed here at library AFTER Id Posted , surprisingly it came up clear & legable , After id posted .  :(

Muttering & fuming on Spitfire Wings . Ive used Scale + 6 inch added in center .Recently elongated a Std Scale 3 view to same O. A. but
just using the x - y co-ordinates . Near identical but maybe preferable aero dynamically . ' We Imagine ' .

Have been contemplateing a ' Detroiter ' Spitfire / Eliptical wing for centuries. It'd obviously work . Tho the maths could be complicated . But who need maths

Yves Fernandez obviously agrees . A bit of common sense in the scribling/ plotting out , layout - and the plasticity of the timber would find the fit , if there
were ' variations. Intended or otherwise .


Cant figure how to ' liberate ' the pictures .  >:( so link ,

https://www.fesselflug.ch/content/werkstatt/modellvorstellung/seafire-mk47-.html

The Whinging above relates to a Spitfire having a Eliptically tatered spar.
A Tempest ( Hawker ) Has a Straight Taper . And a L E that is short straight -curve, long straight , curve - short straight .
outer wing . With the T.E. Curved aft of a straight taper straight ( in planform ) spar .

So though theres similarities ( perhaps ) Theyre NOT the SAME .



Youd think they wouldve thought to Hang Onto One , for ME .  ;) incidently some blokes are rebuilding a Typhoon to Fly , and have found a Engine for it now .Planes build from debri - from the ground up .

https://www.flyer.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2016/11/Hawker-Typhoon-project-3.jpg

http://www.typhoonlegacy.com/

incidently iit , JP 843 , was a tweaked Kiwi one , Lt Wt. ' wash coat ' paint job .
 Flg Of. Price . unfortunately ( like many others ) broke his neck ( as it were ) iin it .
One was first aircraft to intercept a lauched intercontinental ballistic missile , V2 .
Which again unfortunately wasnt there after the missile exploaded , V.C. material .

This is the scale + 6 in ( in middle ) wing. 63 Span . New one under construction is same wing .



Thinking a Geo - Elliptical'd be the go .  >:(

Really need to mould & pre dope / sand leading edges BEFORE Fitting , So New one is Detroiter but full rib.  :P Wanna mould a few sets of L E from it
before I fit to Fuse.  >:( ( L Es for next projects ) . H^^

( thats one of the planes the rissole crushed - Melbourne . Dead Sh*t )

Can one of these computor whizz'es confirm  say a sin. cos. etc 30 Deg lengthened detroiter rib , will match the unshortened swine , in an
eliptic ving , thanks .
