About this Plan

Super Joy Stick. Radio control sport aerobatic model. Wingspan 45-1/2 in, wing area 405 sq in, for .15 to .25 engines.

Quote: "This kit contains the most complete hardware package and finest balsa of any on the market. It's a precision machine cut kit designed for the fast building, strength and performance every sport flier looks for in the plane he flies, yet a novice can fly and land the Super Joy Stick like a pro. I am certain you will be entirely satisfied with the Super Joy Stick."

Update 21/6/2023: Added kit review from RCM, April 1976, thanks to RFJ.

Quote: "The Super Joy Stick is manufactured by Mile High Models, 4805 Baja Court NE, Albuquerque, New Mexico 87111. Designed as a one-design club racer (as featured in the article 'Slow It Down!' March 1976 RCM) it also doubles as an excellent .15 to .25 sport aircraft. With a wingspan of 45-1/2 in the total wing area of the Super Joy Stick is 405 square inches.

Construction used is balsa and plywood and included in the kit are hinges, control horns, pre-bent steerable nosegear, main gear, engine mount, nosegear tiller arm, two pushrods, two clevises, two aileron wires with nylon bearings, eight bolts and blind nuts for the nosegear plus 1/16 diameter music wire. The plan size is 25 by 37 inches, printed on both sides with a 6 page construction manual included.

One unusual feature of the kit is the one-piece hardwood dihedral brace which also is the main landing gear mount. In addition, it is a nice touch to include a universal engine mount in the kit.

RCM's prototype weighed 44 ounces ready to fly for a wing loading of 15.6 ounces per square foot. Our prototype was finished in light blue Flite-Kote on the fuselage; red, aluminum and metallic gold on the wings; trimmed off with DJ's multistrips in gold and black. An Ace Digital Commander radio was used and the Super Joy Stick was powered by an Enya .19 R/C engine and Enya muffler.

The kit is quick building, all parts fit extremely well, and the plans and instructions are completely logical and easily followed by even a novice builder. With regards to the flight performance, we found that it was necessary to move the balance point forward 1/4 inches, at which time the model flew exceptionally well. Very smooth aileron rolls were accomplished with only a touch of down required. In addition, the Super Joy Stick is a very capable aerobatic aircraft.

Due to the tricycle gear set up, a smooth surface is required for take-off although the aircraft can easily be built as a tail dragger by simply moving the main landing gear forward so that the axles are in line with the leading edge of the wing.

All in all, the Super Joy Stick is an excellent aircraft for general sport flying, as a low wing trainer, or for one design racing as it was primarily intended by the manufacturer. We would rate this kit excellent in all categories."

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.
