Kwik Fly Mk3 (oz4440)
About this Plan
Kwik Fli Mk3. Radio control aerobatic model. World champion design.
Quote: "The aerobatic multi-channel R/C model KWIK FLY MK 3, designed by Phil Kraft, USA, is the winner of the '67 World Championship Contest in Corsica. On this occasion, as on many others - such as the '67 Nats in the USA - it gave a splendid account of its superior performance and won. The development of this model lasted several years. Its name - KWIK FLY MK 3 - indicates that this is the third bird of the family. The design was thoroughly tested under a variety of weather conditions and was given the 'full treatment'. As a result KWIK FLY MK 3 is a fully developed and matured model design, which is bound to satisfy even the highest demands.
The aerodynamic configuration of the model was tailored to the new stunt schedule. Its lines are simple and clear. The fuselage provides ample room for the installation of GRAUPNER/GRUNDIG proportional R/C equipment DIGITAL TX 14/RX 14 with DIGIMATIC R control servos ...Phil Kraft aimed for a particularly low flying weight in order to gain ample power reserve for stunting. In order to achieve such a low weight, the QUICKIE KIT contains selected balsa wood. He who wishes to reduce the flying weight still more, may omit the colour finish and replace it by coloured tissue paper..."

User commentsHallo Mary, hallo Steve, I've found the next very old picture [see more pics 007]. I think it's 25 years old. The builder is my friend "Rainer Kirch". The Kwik Fly was powered by a 10 ccm 2-stroke engine..

Herewith I send you the German language building instructions for the Graupner Kwik Fly MK 3 (Kit No 4629), also for the Graupner RTF Kwik Fly MK 3 (Kit No 9393). In the German RC-Network forum were several requests for these instructions. [See supplementary files.]

* 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.
