About this Plan

Jet-40. Radio control sport model. Wingspan 1400mm.

Quote: "Hi Steve and Mary; Here's the plan of the JET 40 SVENSON. One of the best aircraft that SVENSON ever made. With a 6.5 cc OS 40 FP my JET flies very well, also on very low speed he is very stable. Really a pleasure to fly. One of the last models made, after that, the factory went bankrupt in 1983. I hope many model builders there a build, and have fun. Julien"

Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)? That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

This model is almost identical to the Midwest Strikemaster, also featured on your site [see oz5985] but the Midwest version, no longer available, had a foam wing. That's a big problem these days, as most of the foam available is "recycled". That means they throw their scraps into the next batch, causing hard lumps that won't cut right. "Virgin" foam is not easy to find. What all this means is, if you want a Strikemaster but can't find a foam wing, build this one instead, ribs are on the plan. I flew the Strikemaster back in the day and it does fly very well.

Included are pictures of my recently build Jet 40 from a 30 years old kit [more pics 006-009]. Not for a 0.40 engine but transformed for brushless outrunner 3548 700KV with a 5s 3000mAh battery. Also included a real cockpit with pilot! Flies a lot better than with the methanol engine!!!!!!! I also downloaded the plan from your site, because I have not saved the wing ribs!!!!!!!! And that gives a problem to build an other one........... Egrtz and a lot of thanks!

Hello Steve and Mary, in attachment some photos of my Jet40. I bought a well used but good conserved Jet 40 some years ago. I did a complete make over, dual aileron control, electric setup, new servo's, new finishing. A detailed report (in Dutch) can be found here:
I use a SK3 5045 kv=660 on 6S with a 11x10 prop and after some test flights, I can say it has loads of power and behaves excellent in heavy wind conditions. The first photo is of the original model, second and third is after the make-over and electro conversion [more pics 009-012]. Best regards,

Hello, Here are few pictures of my Jet 40 [main pic, 013, 014], CAD redrawn, laser cut, vacuum formed canopy, 3D printed engine cowl, OS40 FP engine. Maiden flight was done this morning… what a blast! Regards,

* 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.
