Super 60 (oz552)
About this Plan
KK Super 60. KK Super Sixty. Classic design for radio control. The KK Super 60 was essentially an update of the FF classic KK Junior 60 (oz1398) re-designed for R/C.
Update 22/05/12: All builders take note. BrianCox mailed in to say: "The plan is a normal late version of the aircraft and, being a kit plan, there were no rib patterns on it. However, someone has added two hand-drawn rib patterns, but they're nothing like Super 60 ribs, they're the rib patterns for the first model of the Junior 60."
For more detail on this design, see RCLibrary page at http://www.rclibrary.co.uk/title_details.asp?ID=1069 for free download of the complete book 'Radio Control Big Four' from 1964, which contains a section of several pages written by Ernie Webster detailing the design changes between the KK Junior 60 (oz1398) and the KK Super 60.
Also includes lots of detail on building, installing radio gear, trimming and flying the Super 60.
Update 27/08/2020: Added complete build log PDF, thanks to NickW.

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

User commentsAs the wing is constant chord and section, only one template is needed. The actual rib template is shown on top of the fuselage so the best thing is to use that and not the two hand drawn ones.

hi I am building one from this plan the plan reads '2 inch dihedral under each wing tip' this must be wrong for a 3 channel version mine has now 5 inch under each wing tip which looks right.

Hi Steve/Mary, here is a photo of the Keil Kraft Super 60 I have build this winter from the Outerzone downloaded plan [see more pics 005]. Change made to dihedral, plan shows 2 inch under each wing tip mine has 5" under each tip, looks good to me. Engine an OS 25, covering green matt solartex sprayed black added. This will be my mobius camera spy plane among things, light bomber missions are planned too. The color scheme some what like an RAF DHC-2 Beaver. This Super 60 still awaits markings, designations and missions after test flight resulting in c of a to my approval (a good feeling you have after flight test) and a nice spring day that makes me say 'lets go out and do it now'

The wing airfoil section was a standard Clark Y. Have still got the original wings from 1968.

Hi Mary/ Steve, here are some photos for the plan page of the Keil Kraft Super 60, built from the down loaded plan [more pics 006-011]. It uses an O.S. 25 Sf and 9x4 prop. Modification made are two spruce 4 inch sq wing spars, dihedral 5 inch under each wing tip and slightly reinforced around landing gear attachment. It has by now made many fine flights, most in southern France. I like this aircraft so much I will build a 3rd this winter for next season. It takes a camera also, this can be seen here in action: www.youtube.com and here.

Hi, this is not the Keil Kraft version (which had an aerofoil tailplane and other structural differences). This is the Ben Buckle version.

hi MSE if this is not the keil kraft version why don't you send in a full size scan of that plan so all (and me) can build that one.

might as well do a follow up on this now a few years later , I even build two more outerzone plan super 60s , so now have 4 of them and they have flown lots, most in France and Spain. and my old youtube link is dead so here is a new one
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ITdUdQsb81M&feature=youtu.be On these places I fly I also camp.
I am unsure what to build next , these 4 are all still perfect and would anything else be better for my specific use ? wings are 2 piece , stabilizers come of, as does landing gear, which allows for minimal space in the car .

This prompts me to get out my old KK kit and check out the plans and the airfoil. The airfoil shown on these plans is not a "standard Clark-Y", it only resembles one from a distance and is thicker with a sharper LE. If the plans are decent enough I'll get them scanned.

Hi Steve/Mary, just to show I actually finish a few as well as submiting plans, here's my Super 60. Covered in Solartex with painted trim, OS40 four stroke [more pics 012, 013]. RSC single channel RC for nostalgic photos only! Cheers

Hello everyone, I have just completed the construction of a Super 60, from a map of Ben Buckle, it will fly soon! powered by an OS 40 FP engine and as a radio Futaba FF6 in 41.060 Mhz, as at the time! Here is the link to the page of my blog: http://acro45.eklablog.com/nouveau-super-60-a175294980

Hi again Steve and Mary, Please find attached a PDF build log (use as you see fit) and a couple of pics from my Super 60 build, completed and maidened a couple of days ago [pics 014-016]. When I first got back into RC nearly 10 years ago, a 3-channelSuper 60 was to be my 'large' trainer, as I could remember the 1979 Keil Kraft Handbook I had received as a birthday present, which had a very smart Super 60 held by its proud owner on the front cover. In short, I’d always wanted to build one since first getting into aeromodelling. It took until now to get around to fulfilling this goal. The final specs. for the maiden flight ended up as follows: Span 63”. Weight (incl.batt.) 3lbs 13ozs. Wing loading 14.3 ozs/sq ft. Motor/prop SURPASS C3536 1050kv turning 10x4 prop. Once again, please keep up the great work you are doing with Outerzone.

* 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.
