and Rockets visitor Shun kwei L., from Taiwan, wrote to request the plans
and article for Flip Flop 16, a hand-launched glider that appeared in the
November 1969 edition of American Aircraft Modeler. There was no accompanying
article, but here are the scanned plans. The Drifter was designed and drawn
by Bill Blanchard.

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.
