About this Plan

Whiz Kid - Radio control sport trainer model for Cox BB .049 and single channel radio. Uses Midwest moulded foam wing.

Quote: - "The Whiz Kid and Cessna 150 (oz8492) introduce a new approach to 1/2A R/C models. Each is designed to fit a specific step in a building program guaranteed to set you off to a flying start in single channel RC. Both feature an unusual moulded foam wing and stab which combine to give a flight response unique in .049 class models. Thoroughly tested in hundreds of flights by modellers of all ages and degrees of experinece, they have proven to be exceptionally easy to build and fly, yet have survival rates far beyond the avaerage...

User comments

The Whiz Kid is Owen's predecessor of the RCM Ace Whizard , but used a molded foam wing and stabilizer set that was made by Midwest Manufacturing. I think Midwest produced a kit of this plane for a time. Not 100% positive of that, but I know they made a couple of .049 size aircraft using that wing and tail.

* 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.
