How to fold and assemble the P-1 DREAMER template for POWERUP DART.
The Dreamer template is designed for take-off from the ground with the landing gear (front wheels and rear skid). The landing gear is supplied with the POWERUP DART standard kit.
The dreamer's large wing surface creates a lot of lift, which enables taking-off from the ground. For aerobatic flying, it's performance is reduced compared to the Invader template.
how do i install the landing gear?
Here you go
Is there a template for the Dreamer? I only see a template for the Invader? As for the invader template, do we just print the 3.0 template at A5 paper size to have it Dart sized? I tried that but it printed at a bit different size than the included paper templates.
Mike, I have been wondering the same, so I did a test:
This gave me an A5 dashed rectangle with the Invader template inside. I cut this with an x-acto and folded. Perfect size.
My workflow is messy, and requires resizing, adding a border to cut, etc. It would be nice if a US letter template came pre-made this way. It would really help those of us in the US that are trying to enjoy making the templates for the Dart.
I have not found a template for the Dreamer, but plan to do the Trainer, Nakamura, and Cardinal (Alpine, etc. --as many as I can find in A4 format) the same way as above. Also, I have not found any of the additional Dart templates, like, where's the F18 and others.
Also, I tried doing a half-size US letter and did not like the results. The Invader wings were not right. The wingtips came to too much of a point.
