About this Plan

Sub Mini. Smaller version of the super 60, for single channel RC.

Quote: "The Keil Kraft Super 60 needs no introduction, already a favourite in both super and earlier forms for radio. D Boddington scaled down Keil Kraft's design to make this delightful sportster.

The Sub-Mini is one of a series of models all based on the Keil Kraft Super 60 varying in wingspan from the Sub-Mini of 32in span to the Mighty Super spanning 80in. Variations have included biplanes and a floatplane is now on the board. Anyone who has tried to fit into a normal family car two adults, two children and two normal sized Super 60's will understand the advantages in having a model capable of fitting into the boot - it saves much time and expense involving lawyers and divorce courts. It is also easier on the pocket as regards building and flying.

The whole range have very similar flying characteristics ie good stable flight with no vicious tendancies but with accurate response from the rudder. The landing characteristics are particularly pleasant and if one is lucky enough to be able to fly off fairly short mown grass a smooth 'three pointer' is virtually guaranteed. The Sub-Mini is suitable for the beginner - take your finger off the button and it will recover and free flight - but has sufficient appeal to make it an attractive to the more advanced RC addict.

Any of the miniature receivers will fit comfortably into the radio space available, actuators are a matter of choice..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
