About this Plan

Comet Whizzer. Control line sport model. Wingspan 30 in, wing area 125 sq in.

Whizzer for class B or C spark engines. This kit used solid balsa construction, with pre-carved fuselage and all-sheet wing and tail surfaces.

Quote (from advert): "New! Comet Whizzer control model! Just released! Designed by Carl Goldberg. You'd expect a control model designed by Carl Goldberg to combine the utmost in appearance, simplicity and ruggedness - and that's just what you'll find in the Whizzer! Wherever it has been flown, it has been acclaimed for its outstanding performance. Test models have consistently placed high in speed events even when flying in competition with clipped wing models! Responds quickly and smoothly to the controls; easily flown by beginners, yet has the performance to satisfy the expert. And Louis Garami's unique 'flap control' puts the Whizzer in a class by itself! Your dealer has the Whizzer now - or will have it soon - order it now and be among the first to build this truly sensational model. Deluxe model kit No.T8-D $9.95."

User comments

Note unusual bellcrank position and no elevator was used, only flaps. On 15 Feb 1946 Carl Goldberg (employed in Comet at the time) applied for patent of this model. Probably they tried to sidestep Jim Walker patents in order to not pay royalties. Flap system invented by Louis Garami.

Notes

* Credit field

The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.

Scaling

This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
