Super Hots 60 (oz6021)
About this Plan
Midwest Super Hots 60. RC sport fun fly model.
Discontinued kit from Midwest.
Note the original Hots (oz4581) design was first kitted by Midwest in 1985. This here is a later, larger version for .60 engines.
Quote: "The 'Super Hots' was designed by Dan Santich and first appeared as a construction article in the February 1986 issue of Model Airplane News as a one piece, quickly built, high performance Fun-Fly model.
Midwest Products has re-engineered the design to include a removable wing, which makes this version of the Super Hots easier to build and transport. Also the airframe has been strengthened to provide you with a model that will give many hours of enjoyment. The structure has been designed so that you can build most of this model using cyanoacrylate (super glue type) adhesives..."
Quote: "The Super Hots is a high-performance model. With a hot schnuerle ported .60cc engine, it is capable of taking off in less than 10 feet. It can climb vertically out of sight and is capable of knife-edge loops with the recommended CG and rudder throws. Even with this kind of performance, the model is very stable and predictable; and is easy to fly. The glide ratio is quite high and the model has a very flat glide. For this reason we recommend that you set the engine idle as lean as possible in order to land. The thick wing is resistant to stalling and landings can be made at very low airspeeds."
Midwest kit #157. Planfile includes 5 sheets of hand-traced formers.

User commentsHi Steve! I've attached a picture of the completed Super Hots [pic 003]. This is the kit that the tracings were made from and plans scanned from. Thanks for keeping a great resource!

Hello, I found this manual somewhere online and it seems a little more recent than the current OZ one [see suppl. file].

Hello, I am submitting pictures of my Dan Santich designed Super Hots (oz6021) for consideration of display on your plan page that I completed in late 2020 [pics 005-010]. It was built pretty much to plans. The fuselage was glassed with 3/4oz cloth. The wings were covered in Sig “Koverall” and the empennage was covered in “Polyspan”. The entire model was coated with Nitrate dope to seal the weave of the cloth and the colors and effects were airbrushed with Butyrate dope. The entire model was clear coated with Butyrate clear. Power is an OS-61SF with True-Turn spinner. Servos are Hitek and receiver is Spectrum.
With Covid cloistering, it has yet to maiden but I have no doubt that it will fly great just like all the rest of Dan’s designs. I think of the finish as a cross between “Steam Punk” and “Road Warrior” combined. It was a fun build and I am looking forward to it’s maiden flight soon. All the best,

* 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.
