Airplanes and Rockets visitor Shun
kwei L., from Taiwan, wrote to request the plans and article for The Drifter, a hand-launched
glider that appeared in the September 1971 edition of American Aircraft Modeler. There
was no accompanying article, but here are the scanned plans. The Drifter was designed
by Phil Boretto, and plans were drawn by George Metz.

The AMA Plans Service offers a
full-size version of many of the plans show here at a very reasonable cost. They
will scale the plans any size for you. It is always best to buy printed plans because
my scanner versions often have distortions that can cause parts to fit poorly. Purchasing
plans also help to support the operation of the
Academy of Model Aeronautics - the #1
advocate for model aviation throughout the world. If the AMA no longer has this
plan on file, I will be glad to send you my higher resolution version.
