The Dottie S was begun as a high school project by George Bennet and Richard Carter and completed in 1957 at Mississippi State University with the help of Guy Storer of the Raspet Flight Research Center. The wings were based on the shorter ones of the Schultz-Midwest MU-1 while the horizontal tail was based on the Laister-Kaufmann LK-10A and the vertical tail was scaled down from that of a Schweizer SGS 2-12 (TG-3A). No spoilers were fitted.
