Canard Stick (oz3272)
About this Plan
Canard Stick. Radio control canard model. Wingspan 60 in, wing area 580 sq in, for .35 - .45 power and 4 channels.
Includes 11 pages of detailed instructions.
Quote: "INTRODUCTION Back in 1982, when the Canard Stick concept was just a glimmer in the mind of the designer, it was pictured as being a far-out, futuristic design, having swept-back wings and tip fins. The tremendous success of the first prototype of that concept proved that canard airplanes are indeed well suited for R/C modelling! Soon after, the 1/5-scale LONG-EZ was born, with the 1/4-scale QUICKIE following close behind.
It has become apparent that many modelers, while being intrigued by the canard-configuration designs, are hesitant to step into this new realm due to the price and apparent complexity of the few canard kits currently available. The CANARD STICK was designed to meet that need, providing a low-cost, simple to build, and easy to fly canard-pusher airplane.
It is our hope that building and flying the CANARD STICK will be an enjoyable and satisfying experience, and that it will lead you to try our other canards in the near future.
Although we have taken many steps to insure that this kit builds and flies as intended, we are human and occasionally make mistakes; therefore, please take a few minutes to let us know if you experience any problems in building or flying your Canard Stick. We do not shun good constructive criticism, but use it to constantly improve our products..."

Quote: "I have been searching for this plan for 7 years now and finally found it here. I could not open it at the eurekaaircraft site probly my computer so I had a friend do it and put it in pdf form for me. They fly very well I had a friend with one and it was very hard to stall."

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

User commentsHere are a few pictures of my Canard Stick, scratch built from plan #3272 [more pics 003-006]. Working on the Big Stik now. Will forward pictures of it when completed. Thank you for your site.

I built the Canard Stick [main pic]. It's powered with a Super Tigre 45 two stroke. It likes a long take off run but it flies rock solid. Thanks for making the plan available.

* 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.
