About this Plan

Easy Sport 40. Radio control sport model.

Discontinued kit from Great Planes.

Quote: "Great Planes Easy Sport 40. Now that you have mastered the basics of flight with your primary trainer, you are now ready to advance to the next higher level - a level that will open the doors to aerobatics. With the experience you ve acquired with your trainer along with the Great Planes Easy Sport, you will be able to experiment with, and master, the maneuvers that your club pros perform.

The Easy Sport, with its shoulder mounted wing, rugged construction and heavy-duty landing gear, will allow you to practice and perfect any maneuver you desire But don't let its aerobatic qualities put you off The Easy Sport is also an extremely docile flier. Thanks to its thick semi-symmetrical airfoil, generous moments and light wing loading, you'll be able to 'grease her in' every time

If you've mastered your trainer and are ready to progress to advanced flight maneuvers the Great Planes Easy Sport is just the ticket for easy-flying, smooth aerobatics Welcome to the world of sport flying.

The Easy Sport is not a beginner's airplane. It is relatively fast, highly maneuverable, and lacks the self recovery characteristics of a good basic trainer such as the Great Planes PT-40 Mkll. If you have already learned the basics of R/C flying and can safely handle a basic trainer, the Easy Sport is an excellent choice to sharpen your skills and learn more advanced maneuvers. We think you will agree that the Great Planes Easy Sport is the highest quality, best flying model of its type on the market today.

Engine Selection: The recommended engine size range is as follows:
.40 to .50 cu in 2-stroke.
.60 to .80 cu. in. 4-stroke.

The Easy Sport 40 will fly well with any of the recommended engine sizes. For 'Hot Dogging' and speedy performance we suggest either an 0 S 46FX or a SuperTigre GS-45, both 2-stroke engines An OS FS-70 Surpass is a good choice for those who prefer 4-stroke engines.

Landing Gear Configuration: The Great Planes Easy Sport can be set up with tricycle gear (nose wheel) or built to be a taildragger Many pilots prefer taildraggers as they are more sporty looking and offer less drag than the traditional landing gear configuration But they can present minor ground handling problems Tricycle gear, on the other hand, provides stable tracking during takeoff and landing, but is heavier and creates more drag than a tail wheel.

If you choose to build your Easy Sport 40 as a taildragger, you will need to purchase a wire tail gear assembly (GPMQ1900), a 1 in tail wheel (GPMQ4241) and two 3/32 wheel collars (GPMQ4302)... "

Quote: "Hello, friends. I'm using your plans to build my models. I would like to send plans for models that are not on your website, FUN P-51 Tower Hobbies and Easy-Sport 40 Great Planes. These models were built by me at different times and the plans of these models were scanned on a large tape scanner. There are distortions. Maybe they will be useful to you. With respect and gratitude, Mikhail."

* 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.
