About this Plan

Sunny. Radio control 2M glider model.

Quote: "Refined by many years of field-tested improvements, the Sunny can be used as a rudder-only slope-soarer or as a power-assisted glider when equipped with its power-pod."

Quote: "Hi Steve, the SUNNY by SVENSON, a 2 meter glider. This is a second implementation of the Azizo. Personally, I prefer the Azizo. The wing of the SUNNY is heavier than the Azizo. The SUNNY was a success in the '80s."

Update 24/10/2017: Added scan of wing ribs, thanks to Joost.

Quote: "Hi I have made a scan of the wing ribs from this glider since they are not all shown on the plan I am sure they are of use to those wishing to build it from the plan on Outerzone. Thanks and regards,"

Update 03/11/2017: added decals, thanks to Joost.

Here are 2 photos of a Svenson Sunny glider I just built [more pics 004, 005]. I used a part build kit, took only a couple of evening hours in about a week.

As promised, photos of the just finished Svenson Sunny glider [more pics 006, 007]. I wanted to make them out doors and not on the workshop floor, so I have test flown it today. It flies well too. I spent an hour flying slowly, getting my hands cold, thinking it was not that long ago summer was here.

My SVENSON SUNNY was built from a kit in 1978 [more pics 008-011]. It had a pylon mounted COX .09 engine. I flew it intensively for nearly 10 years. It had to endure a lot of misuse and abuse but it somehow survived. Too many repairs and damage caused by oil in the exhaust of the COX engine weakened the plane and it ended up in the basement for the next 30 years. During last winter I took it completely apart, cleaned and repaired it. A lot of parts are new, but I tried to keep it as original as possible. I made a new engine pylon, but this time for an electric engine. It made its second 'first flight' some weeks ago and it flies very well. Many thanks for Outerzone!!!

I have built another SUNNY by SVENSON [more pics 012]. It was my first RC glider in 1977, I built it again with pleasure. I used the AZIZO oz6976 wings. The wings of AZIZO are the same size but still better by construction. The hull of the SUNNY is better than the hull of the AZIZO. The nose is longer, so there should be no lead ballast in the nose. This glider is in fact the best AZIZO or SUNNY. All errors of SUNNY and AZIZO have been resolved.

This is the kit of the SUNNY by the Spanish factory [more pics 012]. In 1983 the Belgian Svenson factory went bankrupt. For a few more years in Spain these Belgian construction boxes were still made.

Hello, i've noticed on the plan that there is given a washout at the wingtips. The Azizo wing also has wingtip washout? Many thanks.
rautchi eduard - 18/03/2022
Yes the Azizo wing has wingtip washout, AZIZO's wing is lighter, no planking at the top. AZIZO's wing is lighter, no planking at the top. The 4 mm steel wire is nicely drawn on the plan, and therefore easy to manufacture. Please note always use dark heart steel. The AZIZO or SUNNY flies perfectly at 25 grams per square decimeter. If it is heavier it will not take thermals, if it is lighter it will not make enough speed, so 25 gr/dm2. Greetings from Julien, I build and fly AZIZO 49 years.

Recently acquired this well made Sunny [main photo & 015, 016]. Only had to do 10 minutes of additional covering work, and soldering a XT60 connector on the ESC. Recently I did the maiden, in quite some wind, but with a correct CG, this wasn't a problem. It has a light 3S electric setup, more than enough to bring it in the air, so no additional power pod between the wings. 960 gram AUW, not too bad.

Hi Mary; Here is my 100 percent original SUNNY released in the mid-1970s, with the colors as on the 1st kit [pics 016-018]. With my first MPX FM transmitter, also the first transmitter released with modules. You can also see my kit for this glider and the flyer from back then [pic 019].
This was a glider affordable for everyone, which can no longer be said about current model construction. It is not the best 2 meter class, but it still flies very well.
The Amigo II is a lot better than the SUNNY but was also a lot more expensive. In the 1980s the SUNNY could be seen in every Belgian club. These were also the times when people built their own models, now they go to the store and buy a model ready to fly, different times.
Even though the model is over 40 years old, I still regularly fly with this SUNNY. Definitely has more than 1000 flights. Kind regards, Julien uit Aalter Belgiƫ

This was my first balsa kit I bought as a 12 y old boy. It was not a easy build for my first kit, especially the under cambered wing gave me headache to cover. It soon went into a corner and build an Hegi Snoopey where I flew my first solo with. After a few years I decided to finish the Sunny but took of the nose and glued an OS 15FP in the front... It climbed at idle throttle and could stay up for over an our. Had lots of fun with it till the late '90 where a midair destroyed it totally.

* 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.
