The Turbo AeroCruiser was designed as a simpler complement to the original AeroCruiser, which was somewhat complex. I decided to base the new aircraft upon the StratoCruiser due to its one piece fuselage. To counter the pitch-down tendencies evident in the StratoCruiser and Super StratoCruiser designs, I decided to fit a wing with greater lift ahead of the spars than behind them, so as to move the center of lift forward. The wing design selected was the same shape used for the Manx family, to increase commonality. This alteration enables the Turbo AeroCruiser to be flown without additional elevator trimming. In testing, the Turbo AeroCruiser was found to be a stable, quick flyer and was allotted an instructable for publication shortly thereafter.
TAA USAF Designation: D330-1
Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 10.5 by 8 inch graph paper (4 boxes per inch)
Step 2: Begin Construction
After the fuselage is made, take another sheet of paper that is folded in half along the lines of boxes. Mark out the wing as shown (2 boxes in length by 4 boxes in width, and a swept portion in front of this box of 1 box eliminated every 4 boxes away from the fuselage).
Solid lines indicate places to cut. Dotted lines indicate fold lines.
Note: 1 box = 0.25 inches
