About this Plan

Magician 15. Control line profile stunt model. 240 sq in wing area.

Quote: "The latest thoughts in stunt flying are those of the intermediate size airplane. Why build a neighbor annoying, fuel gulping monster when a carefully designed smaller airplane can do the full stunt pattern.

The Magician 15 introduces a new concept in control line flying. In the past if you wanted to fly stunt you had to build up a basket full of parts with long hours of labor; the easily built profiles flew like a hot-rock and took lightning reflexes just to keep out of trouble, much less stunt. Magician 15 is the profile designed with only stunting in mind. With its tremendous wing area and light loading it really flies thru maneuvers allowing plenty of time for precision corrections in control. It is ideal for beginner and expert alike.

We have taken great pains to furnish the finest material and the highest quality workmanship in this kit; build it with care and you will be rewarded with many hours of superior stunting pleasure. The plans are quite detailed, so we shall only pass along some tips in these notes. If you are a beginner we suggest you refer to some of the books and the model magazines for complete general information on construction

Wing: This is the heart of the airplane. Build it true and warp-free. Start by pre-gluing and splicing the leading edge and 3/16 square cap-spar pieces. Now assemble the ribs to the slotted spars - note that the inboard wing is longer than the outboard. Pin the lower halves of the 2 piece trailing edge to your working board over the plans..."

Hi Steve - here's one I didn't find on OZ - Magician 15. Bought the kit off ebay ...I still enjoy OZ every day and I am trying to clear a backlog of plans I want to get to you. Cheers,

Direct submission to Outerzone.

Hi. I have sent you several photos by separate email of the Midwest Magician 15 which I built from plans downloaded from your excellent site [model pic, also pics 005-007]. It flies great on an OS 15LA. Thanks for providing the plans. Please keep up the good work.

Loved those I had built a few. I used to power with an Enya 19. Copied most U.C. plans.. Just wish I had them all still ..

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.
