Stunt Man 23 (oz4338)
About this Plan
Stunt Man 23. All-sheet control line stunt trainer. For .049 to .099 engines. From Carl Goldberg, flying model kit number G6. Full detailed kit intruction sheet along with some hand-traced parts.
Quote: "The Stunt Man 23 is the simplest real stunt model yet. It's rugged enough to get you through the training period. Any damage can be fixed with a tube of cement. With the Stunt Man, you'll enjoy flying upside down, adnd doing wing-overs, and and outside loops, etc."
Quote: "More plans. Hi Steve, Unfortunately I hadn’t drawn around the tailplanes for both these planes for some reason. Regards,"

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

User commentsHello Mary & Steve, Attached some pics of the Stuntman 23 [main pic, 006, 007]. Photo 006 shows a pair of Stunt "Men". The upper model is a true veteran - built by Greg Farish in the 1970s. It was well flown back then, and was recently dusted off to go around the circle just a few more times. Note the fuselage splice behind the wing TE. This was a weak point and almost every Stunt Man broke here at some point. There is a video of Greg flying his model here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rkEk1G8R9KM
The model in the foreground of pic 006 (also see main pic, 007) was built by me - also from the original Carl Goldberg kit, but much more recently. Having owned one many decades ago, and broken the fuselage (many times!) at the aforementioned location, I embedded a 15mm strip of carbon fibre (1mm x 3mm) in this area. These models fly as well as one might expect for a flat plate airfoil. They are excellent trainers at low power and capable of basic aerobatics with a bit more punch. Any Cox .049, including the Black Widow and Golden Bee as seen here, will provide adequate power.

* 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.
