About this Plan

Quikie Mk 4 - Class B pattern design.

Quote: "Three years ago I got tired of fixing something every time I came home from the flying field and decided to do something about it. Not having much time to build or repair, the Quikie was designed around my requirements for a fast, maneuverable, rugged sport ship that could take the kind of punishment the average flier dishes out. It was a success - then the contest bug bit. Wanting to retain the prototype's durability, a series of modifications were made to improve performance and handling, resulting in the MK 4.
With a 51 or 56 in the nose, the Quikie has very pleasant handling characteristics. Put a healthy 60 up front and this ship will hold its own in any B Pattern and most C Novice contests. Six trophies in two seasons bear this out..."

* 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.
