Bonus content here includes the John O’Donnell’s original AeroModeller article from June 1952 on his record breaking Giro Glider, and as an addition to the obituary on John Oliver a reprint of the Oliver Tiger Mk4 Review from April 1968.
Did anyone win a year’s subscription for their opinion on J O’D’s rotor glider, and what was the verdict on whether or not the rotors helped? I know what I think….
As I remember, the subscription was won by Joe Maxwell, who submitted a very long and very detailed comment based on the observation that the model was in fact a conventional glider with a freewheeling propeller. The propeller was tilted back nearly 90 degrees and called a rotor, but that made no real difference
