About this Plan

Mox Nix. Control line sport model. Tricycle gear and twin tail. For .19-25 power.

Quote: "Looking for a sport Ukie that can wear you out rather than itself, also good looking and fine performance? Mox Nix, by David Kingman.

Today could have been one of those weekdays that make a man think the weekend will never come. First, a frosty morning, then all manner of small irritations at work. Finally the working day ended, and as I walked from the office to my car things started to look brighter. The temperature had risen to above freezing, and a glance at the flagpole showed a pretty constant breeze. Well, what would you have done? I zipped home, collected my as yet unflown sport model and my ever faithful flying partner, and went model aviating! Darkness later forced a halt to the activities, but not until the cares of the day were forgotten and I had decided this Mox Nix is even better than those before it.

The first Mox Nix was designed in Germany during 1960. It had the 'different' look I desired, and flew well, but ground handling was poor. The second moved the main gear struts farther apart and beefed up several points in the framework. Mox Nix series three, shown here, uses a further improved airframe and the three-line control system first sold under the J Roberts brand name. Plans show the two-line system most people will want to use. If you think you might like to try flying with engine speed control, do it. You will like it! Mox Nix is smooth in flight, yet responds in a decisive manner to all commands.

At reduced rpm, she will taxi like a baby carriage. The name? 'Mox nix' is GI slang for a German phrase meaning: it makes no difference. As we used it, a cheerful, 'no sweat' attitude is indicated. Design philosophy was that if two ways to build a component existed, I'd draw it the easier way. Let's cut wood!

Wing. General Information. It is designed so that full 36 in pre-formed leading and trailing edges can be used. If these are not available, the leading edge can be shaped from a piece of 1/2 in square stock..."

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.
