i have a 40 inch 180 but not the 170. Its on page 3 here along with a bunch of other plans . Just click on the colored letters at the bottom of each one to open up the free download window . joe http://174.142.160.206/viewtopic.php...f07c4&start=60 On the plan you have i think they show you the full airfoil ribs and the end one on the top of the plane so if you cut the end one and put it over your plan and the full airfoil one in the middle where it starts to taper you can hold a straight edge and figure out the rest of them in between.

nitrowing 02-27-2013 01:20 AM

thanks
I have that plan too
may have to make a hybrid version, compiled from several plans:)

I have found your same plan on many sites but none have wing ribs or elev ribs. Did you ever think about trying to use the ribs off of the 180 for the 170 ? you will have to try to get them close to the same size but i dont see why it would not work. joe

nitrowing 02-27-2013 03:14 PM

my head is spinning with all the plans ive researched. I think the smaller 180 plans had a full flat bottom wing, but definately considered it.
found a laser cutter for the berkely, i'll just go that route

You wouldn't happen to have plans for the Curtis P-6E would you?

Quite the breathtaking bird if you ask me...

I know this is an old thread, but I thought I would touch it (as it was how I found this forum).
I have an original JASCO Thermic 50 (not the 50x) still unassembled in its box with the plans. I'll try to get it scanned so I can post them.

Here is the kit.

I've been having trouble uploading plans so...
Time to revive the thread.

Here is the Comet Phantom Fury.


Edit.. This plan is redrawn so both wings are already joined. I made the opposite halves of the wing and stab by making mirrored images of the original.
Now the left half and the right half are exactly the same.

The original version is on outerzone.

Here's a hard one to find The original Carl Goldberg Sr. Falcon.
This one is not the same as the ARF. This was from the 60's.

A couple of years ago I bought a gentleman's collection of kits.
One kit he gave me was a started Midwest "Das Little Stick", I've never been a fan of "Sticks" so I put it in a pile of others I thought I would just trade or sell.

Recently I was looking for something and I came across the Little Stick, The ribs were assembled and the wing was still straight.
It had 40 years of dirt and some other unknown stuff covering it, but why not.
I finished the plane in a couple of weeks, All it needs now is some trim.

I'll get some pictures soon.
But here's the plan.

Hi Paul

Thanks for this small bi-plane version of the Super-Sixty (I've been flying my Super 60 for more that 20 years now).

I also met and flew with Dave Boddington when he visited South Africa in the mid 90's and attended one of our events at Swartkops AFB near Pretoria. I let him have some stick time on my Super 60.

Thanks for the effort you are putting into this thread, it's wonderful. NO POLITICS! NO ARGUMENTS AND NO [email protected]#P About COPYRIGHTS :D

BTW how do I add my SrFalcon avatar, what format must it be in?

Cheers

Marc

pd1 07-28-2014 11:22 PM

Hi Mark,
Welcome to wattflyer.

I believe to add or change an avatar click "My wattlyer" top left part of the screen.
When the drop down menu appears click change avatar.

The picture must be small 80x 80 pixels or less.
My picture is in jpeg format, I don't know if any other formats are accepted.
If you have a problem shrinking you picture to fit, let me know, Photoshop to the rescue.

The basic Ugly Stik in all its forms is the VR/CS 2014 airplane. Any size is allowed as long as it resembles the original 1965 design.

The littlest stick can be found here http://my.pclink.com/~dfritzke/ as a free download and some other free tiled goodys.The das canard stick i have also in pdf form . I made mine a 40 inch wingspan and electric dollar tree foam and balsa and it flys like its on rails. lol The origanal is a picture not of mine in balsa. joe

No picture?
How else can we tell if you got a great deal or a fantastic deal?

This one is sort of like a scaled down Aeromaster.
Sportster Bipe 40 been out of production for years.
Would hate to see the design lost to time.

Will need to take another pic of it. I deleted it to make room for new pics. My SD card was full.

For you Stinson fans. The SR-6
I straightened the wing and mirror imaged the left and right wing panels so they should be identical.
62 inch wingspan 41 inches long.

From 1960, Hal deBolt's Pursuit
I believe this was the first radio control kit to have a fully symmetrical airfoil.
The construction is old school, very old school, but was the first plane to also reduce the incidence to almost zero.
My dad had one, we got two flights out of it. The total time in the air, about one minute.
It was a bit harder to fly RC back then.

pd1 07-15-2016 11:09 AM

And now for something completely different

If you were around when the dinosaurs roamed the earth you might remember this one. Comet Struct-O-Speed model Cub.

Pretty terrible kit, a promise for youngsters to be able to just glue it together and fly, yea right.
I liked the Monogram Speedy Built kits better.

Anyway now that you're older, why don't you try one in your off time.

Paul

Brner 12-07-2016 03:38 AM

PD,

I wasn't the one that asked but that's a great little plan...thanks...

Anyone have a set of Carl Goldberg CUB Plans?

I got the word a few days ago that Paul Dinoto (PD1) passed away July 26th after a long illness. Paul attended the Octoberfest VRCS event a few years ago. He was a good builder, pilot and great guy to talk about all things vintage RC. He will be missed.
