Mustang 40 (oz5572)
About this Plan
Jemco Fun Scale Mustang 40. Sport scale model for radio control.
Quote: "Steve: These are the 'plans' for the Jemco Fun Scale Mustang 40. Span 51 inches. Engine 19-40. The kit does not contain plans in the conventional sense. Only a wing plan is included. The fuselage is built on the table following the illustrated instruction steps. Included are pencil tracings of the die cut parts. It is possible to scratch build the plane from what is included. Thanks for what you are doing with Outerzone."

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

I'm in the process of building one of these from your plans. There is no left wing plan, the original was printed on the back side of the right wing view. You were supposed to turn the plan over and build the second half. I loaded the plan into GIMP, flipped it horizontally, then exported it as a PDF, matched perfectly. It was easier for me to build the wing with the entire plan. Here is the reversed left wing.

I flew my Jemco Mustang for the first time today, she fly good [more pics 004]. Thanks for saving the traced parts and the plans to keep this classic available for modelers the world over. Parts fit was not the best but the kit had this reputation also. Nobody can fault the flying ability, better than any other Mustang ever built. I did my best to keep mine light, ended up at 2lb 13oz ready to fly. Converted to electric with Leopard 3536 1100 kv (equiv to 2814) Castle 54 ESC and 3cell 2200 battery, 30 amps with APC 10x6E prop. I used this motor because it has a longer prop shaft to fit a spinner and a prop. Spinners are hard to find that run true, finally found one with aluminum backplate and plastic cone, not quite the right shape but acceptable. A beautiful Chinese carbon fiber spinner was not true, could not balance. Forget the all plastic spinners. The air intake under the spinner is enlarged a bit for cooling air, motor stays very cool, ESC gets a little warm but not hot, battery is cold. Doesn't have as much power as the original 40 glow but still plenty, about like a good 25. I moved the firewall forward to fit the motor, added a bottom battery hatch and enlarged the ailerons 1/2" wider. Balance point on mine is about 1/2" towards the rear from the recommended spot, test flight confirms this is OK. Bob Hoover's Ole Yeller is covered in Doculam painted with Rustoleum, lettering is low heat EconoKote to avoid blistering the paint. It's a real nice model, if you can get past the unusual construction, it's a winner.

* 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.
