About this Plan

Kwiksilver - Radio control sport/competition model.

Quote: "A .40 powered compact multi that ranks with the best in competition machines. Wing is modified Falcon 56... the Kwiksilver has a 54 x 10 wing yielding 540 sq inches. At 5lb flying weight, the wing loading is about 21.3 oz/sq ft, a loading that I feel is just about ideal. A 25% stab and a 7.5% fin fill out the picture. Long moments help, too, and the fuselage evolved around the engine, fuel tank and radio gear... "

Update 15/08/2017: Added PDFvector plan tracing, thanks to hogal.

Quote: "Attachment is my CAD tracing of the Kwiksilver. The original plan was not particularly clear so I wouldn't be surprised if there were discrepancies between that and my tracing, if you notice any please notify me so I can rectify them. If you choose to build using my drawing measure at least twice before cutting.

* 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.
