Hustler II. Radio control trainer model. Wingspan 1500 mm, for .35 to .45 engine and 3 channels.

Direct submission to Outerzone.
Quote: "Good morning Mary and Steve, ...attached are the plans for the Mk.II version of the Hustler from AeroFlyte. It also contains the plans for the aileron wing. I built this airplane many years ago, and recovered it three times and rebuilt and upgraded it twice, before donating it to my club as a club trainer. It trained over 50 new pilots over a 15 year period.
Mary and Steve, thank you for all of the great work that you do. Oz is the first website I open each day. It gives me pleasure and buffers me from the pain and war that has inflicted this world.
Best to you, always,"
Quote: "This wing plan will also suit the Aero-Flyte Gemini. Mount the servo in the top of the wing instead of the bottom. Traced from the original Aero-Flyte Hustler aileron wing kit plan. John Moody, 13-11-2013."
Update 5/7/2023: Added tailplane parts, thanks to Larry Coleman.

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

Can anyone nail down the dates of these two Hustler kits? Thanks to Pit, I can see they appear in catalogs dated 1960 (the MkI) and 1970 (MkII), am just wondering if we can be any more precise.

Does anyone have the dimensions for the horizontal stab and elevator on the Hustler II?
Andrew Batts - 16/09/2022
As for the stabilizer dimensions: It's pretty easy to figure out. You already have the dimensions at the root from the fuselage plan. Also, you know there is a little taper toward the tip from another view. The rule of thumb for stabilizers is to make it 22% of the wing area. You'll be right there in the ballpark.

* 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.
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.
