About this Plan

FAI Hustler - 58in wingspan free flight power model. For 15 engines. Appeared in FM Decade of Designs No2, 1966.

Quote: - "The Hustler was originally a pylon model. Its performance was quite satisfactory, but as with most high-powered pylon models, it was quite hard to keep in adjustment. After watching some of the early T-Bird's by Russ Hansen, we decided that this [hi-thrust design] configuration might be the answer.

* 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.
