About this Plan

Super Questor. RC sailplane model.

Quote: "Hi Steve - Here is Lee Renaud's Super Questor sailplane from Airtronics. My first sailplane, built with tapered tips and high start launched. I was rewarded with many 30 minute plus flights in the late 70's. No pictures of my original but I have included a box label picture. I recall covering it all white with transparent blue panels. Formers and sheet parts can be easily developed from the top and side views."

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Update 12/03/2020: Added kit review from February 1975 RCM, thanks to RFJ.

Quote: "RCM Product Test: Super Questor.

The Super Questor is a general purpose sailplane designed by Lee Renaud and manufactured by Airtronics. This 500 sq in wing area sailplane features an 80 in wingspan with a constant chord wing to the polyhedral break and tapered end panels. The airfoil is a flat bottom Eppler 385. Included in the kit are pushrods, snap links, control horns, skid tape, tow hook, and tail skid. Unusual features of the kit include options for building the wing in several different configurations with four separate versions shown in the kit.

This is truly an outstanding kit that has been well engineered. The quality of wood and the fit of the parts are excellent. All necessary hardware is included with the kit and all that is required to complete the Super Questor is the radio and covering material.

The Super Questor flies well in light air as well as in light to moderate winds. The sailplane turns extremely well both into the wind and down wind with penetration exceptional for such a light aircraft.

RCM's prototype of the Super Questor was completely covered with Super MonoKote and had an all up weight of 22 ounces."

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.
