Default Duster plans wanted

I'd like to buy a set of plans for a Duster BJ-1b. These need not be
original and can be a copy as they will not be used to build a glider,
only for documentation for an existing Duster that came with no plans.

Hi Leon,

I have a set.
I have resisted answering request for Duster plan up to now.
The sailplane built from these plan broke in flight, succesfull
bail out. The plan were never updated. One such event in a life
time is enough. It is up to you Leon, I will decide from the answer
you give to this post.

Gilles, Could you give us more details on this? The rudder and fin were
redesigned after an in-flight break-up. Was that you?
I have built 2 Dusters and flown them for over 400 hours. I consider it a safe
design, after the change to the fin and rudder. As with any home-built, the
quality of construction may not have been up to aircraft standards and in many
cases the builder doesn't follow the designers instructions. More information,
please.

It was this aircraft, I was not the pilot.
I consider the Duster a safe aircraft.
I question putting these plan, not updated,
back in circulation.
Gilles


Thanks, Gilles
I can provide the modification information that was issued after the rudder
flutter accident. The requester has a completed Duster, he only wants the plans
for reference.

I'd like to make sure this particular one is at least built
per plans. The more information I can get the better my final
decisions will be - I hope.


The modified Duster has a fabric covered rudder with a counterbalance on top.
The forward fin attachment is also strengthened.

Still looking for Duster plans. I purchased a set but after getting
them I discovered they are very old photocopies - and about 80% scale.
This would have been good enough for most inspection and confirming
conformity to the plans. Unfortunatly I will need to do some repair
and some of the information needed (rudder foil shape for example)
needs to be full size. So............

I'm still in the market for a set of original Duster plans, or an
acurate, modern digital copy.
