Curtiss JN-4D Jenny

Joy Products, Menominee, Michigan's Curtiss JN-4D Jenny

The Curtiss JN-4D Jenny was a truly iconic aircraft of the 1918 era, the first aircraft to be purchased by the US War Department in mass production quantities and used for pilot training. This 65" span model, powered by a .35 to .40 glow engine, was kitted by Joy Models, Menominee, Michigan, and considering the slow flying speeds of the original and the model, this plane would be well-suited for a 4-stroke glow engine - .40 CID or larger - or a fairly large brushless out runner electric motor. With the details provided in the plans, this model definitely is best suited for advanced builders and fliers, a "super scale" project for sure!
