About this Plan

Coy Kat. 54in span C/L stunt model. From Model Aircraft, April 1961.

Quote: "The top British stunt design of 1960.

With first placings in stunt during 1960 at the Nationals (Gold Trophy), Sidcup, London Area, Enfield, Ashford and Hiehancombe Rallies, plus the World Championship Trials, it can justly be claimed that Coy-kat is contest proven! How it compares in performance with 'classic' American designs must remain a matter of individual pilots' opinions and prejudices, but compare with them it does, as witness the performances of Don Still and Bob Palmer when they flew Coy-Kat after the contest in Budapest, which, incidentally, also showed that it is not a 'one man' model.

The straightforward construction presents no difficulty to a builder who considers himself competent to handle a large stunter, but the following sequence of events will prove useful.

Fuselage : Cut two sides from 1/8in sheet and attach the mm ply doublers and motor mounts. Sandwich the front U/C wire between the ply formers then assemble the fuselage with the ply formers..."

* 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.
