Kwik-Stik I (oz6158)
About this Plan
Kwik-Stik I. Radio control sport model. Note this plan shows parts for two models at two different sizes, one at 46in span for .15 and one at 60in span for .60 power. Also note this plan shows only the fuselage and tail, a wing needs to be sourced from elsewhere.
Quote: "In the case of the Kwik-Stik, we were so intrigued by the simplicity of the design that we actually built three of them - one .15 powered version with a Junior Box Fly wing and two .60 powered versions using Ugly-Stik (oz5175) wings. The total length of time that it took to cut out the fuselage and assemble each aircraft was one hour!
Thus for an hours worth of work, about two or three dollars worth of material from the local building supply or lumber yard, you can build up several fuselages to fit those spare wings you have left over from deceased aircraft. And, you're going to be extremely surprised by how well the Kwik-Stick flies! The .15 powered version spins like a top, either upright or inverted, snap rolls instantly simply by pulling the stick down in the corner, and you will recover from any attutude you put it in by simply taking your hands off the transmitter. While the smaller version is not a pure basic trainer, it is an excellent sport ship that is relatively easy to fly. Take-offs and landings are virtually hands off.
The larger Kwik-Stik with an Ugly-Stik wing is a pure joy to fly. With everything out in the open where you can get at it, there is no wasted time taking your aircraft apart in order to get at the fuel tank or engine. Clean up and repair is a breeze. And the flying characteristics are truly outstanding, retaining all of the flight characteristics of the original Ugly-Stik..."

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

* 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.
