Little Stinker (oz1800)
About this Plan
Little Stinker. Free flight Jetex model. Winner of the 1950 'Jetex' competition.
Quote: "A study of this successful high performance contest design leaves no doubt that the designer is a lightweight enthusiast. His performance at Farlop under most adverse weather conditions amply proved the capabilities of this model, the flight times being 114.7 seconds and 122.7 seconds. In his opinion the following design requirements were necessary in order to obtain maximum performance with a Jetex model:
1. Ultra light weight; this being very necessary if a fast and high climb is desired.
2. Have a comparatively low centre of gravity, ie motor mounted under the fuselage.
3. Have a large tailplane area and moment arm to stop power looping and to give a good pull-out glide.
Construction. Fuselage. Build this in the usual manner, ie lay down two sides, remove from plan and fit in formers together with spacers. Panel the nose pay (weight box) and cement on the roughly-shaped nose block, finishing this off when the cement has thoroughly dried..."

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

* 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.
