About this Plan

Wiseguy. Radio control sport tailless model. For .25 to .60 power. Simitar series design by Bill Evans.

Quote: "It is so easy to fly that it rates high in the Simitar class of FBI (Flies By Itself) aircraft. The ship is so aerodynamically stable that I can give the transmitter to my five year old granddaughter, Lindsay, and I go for a cup of coffee while it contnues gentle 360 degree turns at a constant altitude. I can put the transmitter in the hands of anyone of any age and they fly, loop and roll on their first flight.

Using CA adhesive, Wiseguy fuselage construction takes about an hour, ready for sanding. The wing is foam, and construction takes about two hours. Add another couple of hours for other parts and sanding, then you are ready to cover.

Wiseguy is the 86th design in the Simitar Series. The first Simitar-type aircraft appeared over twenty years ago when I designed the Saracen (oz7981) glider in April 76 RCM plan #639. The Saracen was the test bed for all Simitars to follow. Flown off slopes and hi-start, sizes ranged rom 48 in to 120 in spans. Interest started to grow. The Saracen was a flying wing using elevons (combined elevator and ailerons using the same control surfaces). We were all amazed at how aerodynamically stable it was, and how it just would not stall..."

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.
