Plan file details
Leisure Playboy - Radio control electric version of the classic Playboy Senior design. Wingspan 67-1/2in, wing area 582 sq in. For Astro 05 power. Plan also shows alternative outline for the Playboy Cabin design.
Quote: - "The Leisure Playboy is a scaled down version of the famous PLAYBOY Senior modified especially for 05 electric power. The Leisure Playboy's polyhedral wing and large lifting tail provide inherent stability for 'hands-off' flight. We designed the installation of electric power and radio gear to be easy to build. Any novice to electric power can build the Playboy, any novice R/C pilot can fly it.
A geared (2.5:1) Leisure 05 stock motor provides a solid 5 minutes of climb power turning a REV-UP 10x6 prop. By using simple on-off switching the Playbot's good thermalling capability will provide you with flights of up to 15 minutes!"
