Gee Bee Model D Sportster

Radio Modeller/Argus's Gee Bee Model D Sportster

The Gee Bee Sportsters were a family of sports aircraft built by the Granville brothers in the early 1930s, low-wing strut- and wire-braced monoplanes with open cockpits and fixed tailskid undercarriage. The Model D Sportster was a Sportster variant, fitted with a Menasco C-4 engine, that won the 1931 Cleveland Air Races, flown by Bob Hall. The model presented here was designed by scale-meister Don Srull for R/C Modeler magazine in the late 1960s, designed for sport scale pylon racing powered by a Cox Tee Dee .049 or .051 engine. Wingspan of this 1:8 scale racer is 37 1/2 inches and reflecting the state-of-art of radio control systems of that time, Galloping Ghost radio equipment is shown on the plans; modern lightweight radio control equipment would be a better choice today.

Also, using the measuring tool make sure all the parts fit together and have the correct size.

Returns:

AeroFred.com is not a plans shop, we are a community of model builders exchanging model airplane plans in digital and physical formats, the digital format plans are free the prints have a cost and are printed on demand. Since we are not a shop, we don´t stock printed plans so when you order a paper print it will be created for you, for this reason we cannot accept returns.
It is very important that you download and inspect the pdf file before placing an order, in doubt please ask us for an opinion. If after doing all this you still get a plan you don´t like we can always find a solution but it will never be a perfect solution so please download and inspect the pdf file before ordering. We will only refund plans that arrived damaged, not plans you order without being sure you like.

Payments:

Orders can be paid with Paypal or Credit Card via Paypal and are shipped to the address on your Paypal account or to the address you set at checkout.

About the Calculator:

The Plans Price Calculator will read the plan file and output all the information on the panel to the right according to the selected options, you can change the options and request a new quote at any time.
If you would like to print a plan that is not on the website you can upload it to the main plans category in pdf format, multiple sheets in the same pdf file, and use the Plans Price Calculator to get a quote and place the order.
