The development of the UltraStratoCruiser came following the success of the smaller but related Turbo StratoCruiser airplane. Its design validated the canards' layout and the three surface concept's use with the StratoCruiser family, so I decided to implement the benefits on the larger Super StratoCruiser as well. The addition of the canards required no major modification, besides the simple addition of one staple and a slight change to the counterweight folding process. The first UltraStratoCruiser prototype was ready quickly and tested well; it was cleared for publication immediately afterward.
TAA USAF Designation: D336-2
Step 1: Materials
1 Piece of 8 by 10.5 inch graph paper
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 (1 box of constant chord at the root; a leading edge sweep of 1 box of chord decaying every 6 boxes outward from the constant chord box; and a trailing edge sweep of 1 box of decay along the 7 boxes of wingspan). This will complete the wings.
Solid lines indicate places to cut. Dotted lines indicate fold lines.
Note: 1 box = 0.25 inches
