About this Plan

Slick. Radio control motor glider for electric power.

Quote: "At last, a high performance motor glider for modelers on a budget.

The Slick has been designed for those modelers who want the performance of aileron controlled expensive composite construction models, but are reluctant to spend the extra money for that type of kit. The design is based on my experience with the S3021 airfoil in two kits that I had in production, the Vengence and the Skimmer. The Slick offers improved performance through the use of ailerons and a full flying stabilizer which contribute to its smooth, predictable high performance and a tremendous speed range.

The design features a fuselage large enough to easily accommodate up to 14-cells as well as a bottom hatch for easy pack removal. The Slick can be flown with any 05/075/15 size motor as well as larger motors for spectacular 10-cell competitive performance. The required controls are aileron, elevator, and motor with optional rudder. If you have a programmable 6-channel radio, you can also use the ailerons as aileron/flaps for approach control.

Gear reduction has not been shown on the plans because the generally higher speed of direct drive is usually more desirable with models that utilize ailerons. However, there are some in-line gear reduced motors on the market that would readily fit into the nose if this is your choice..."

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.
