Westerly Svenson III 59in Airplane Radio-Control
 

Westerly Svenson III 59in by:CoMIYC69

Here is a real nice cabin style plan for a beginner modeller and RC enthusiast. The design allows for two settings for the dihedral. Both are suitable for beginners. The PDF plans are excellent quality. The Westerly kit is still available on Vintage sites but experct over $300 USD. Most of Svenson's blueprints for all models are free on their site. http://www.svensons.com/airplanes/

An additional light weight servo can operate the throttle but adding ailerons would require wing redesign. You can see on the plan there is no room for ailerons.

These are the models I first started out with in RC. Cheap and really easy to fly like a kite without strings and learn the basics for new pilots or young pilots. However, especially for young pilots this will get old fast so after this is done start on a 4-5 channel system.
(If you think the hobby may not be for you, the minimum 3 channel will work fine. For those in love with this sport think ahead and get a 6 - 10 channel for this plane and it will be all you need for some time.)

The video is a near perfect flight of this model using an O.S.40. Manufacturer spec allows up to .410 ci Search as I might I couldn't find any instructions. Perhaps someone speaking Swedish could search?
Viper 64in Airplane Radio-Control
23/07/15 09:05:37am

Viper 64in by:CoMIYC69

Viper is a full-house ship with a laminar flow foam wing, balsa fuselage, retractable landing gear, and uses a .61 Glow Engine.

Well...moving up to the 70's more people will recognize this model. Early example of a Foamy laminated with balsa. The preformed wing parts are still available on line.

After winning several notable awards, best new model, best airplane model, best finish, etc. this plane became very popular for the 'Go Fast' crowd. Handles like a dream and finishes first in class!

Between the Viper Jet, Viper Car and Star Wars the Viper airplane is still relatively easy to research. Parts are still available and this plane still competes. If you have foam shaping down this assembly will be a breeze. If not it is a great plane to learn foam forming techniques. (Still one I have to Master)

You'll have to look for the authors six page instructions called "Building the Viper My Way" but the magazine article is included in the plan file.
