About this Plan

Mo-Jo. Radio control plyon racer.

Quote:- "The first of the new Midwest-RCM Air Racers, the Mo-Jo is a Class B machine designed for .09 - .10 size mills and single channel proportional. A top contender for this new event. The Mo-Jo will bring home the hardware for you

Go out and fly simple proportional. You'll love every minute of it! This concluding statement from the article, 'Return of the Ghost' (RCM, April 1966), sums up all I can say about this type of flying, with the possible exception that the Midwest-RCM Air Races are a natural for the Ghost systems. I prefer to call them simply 'Ghost,' since the appearance of the new actuators and reliable single channel proportional systems has reduced the 'gallop' to a smooth trot.

The MO-JO (a good luck piece) was designed around the proposed Midwest-RCM Air Race rules and qualifies for Class B competition. This type of model is not limited solely to pylon racing, although it does that best, since they are very maneuverable with the higher speeds and smaller moveable surfaces smoothing out the flight. In my own particular area, several modelers have shown an interest in flying this proposed event. Some are currently building their own designs while a racing program is being established. The MO-JO is fun to fly by itself, but the real excitement comes only when you get one or two more in the air with you!

With the Tee Dee .09 installed, the speed is estimated to be about sixty miles per hour, yet with the Min-X 1200, Rand LR-3 actuator, and seven 600 MAH nickel cad-mium cells, the landing speed is surprisingly low.

Construction. Medium weight wood is used throughout construction of the MO-JO. Be sure to pick firm, straight grained C stock balsa with the exception of the leading edge wing sheeting which should be B grain. Fuselage. Cut two sides from 1/4 in sheet and cement the 1/16 plywood doublers to the inside of each..."

* 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.
