Super Sportster 40 mk2

John Hess's Super Sportster 40 mk2

This plan is a modernization / redesign of the Great Planes Super Sportster 40 that was immensely popular in the mid 90's. My intent with the redesign/update was to convert the plane to electric and to modernize the parts so they are ready to go for laser cutting. I have drawn this up over the original Don Anderson plan, to keep the overall shape of the aircraft the same. The parts and build process are all new. I have not built this model yet, but am planning to build it over the fall. The conversion is designed for 6S 5000mah Lipo packs with the Leopard 3542-6T-920KV motor from altitude hobbies. 60 amp ESC minimum.

You can break the link after opening the file as it is no longer needed. Most likely a picture of the plans used as a guide when creating the drawing.
