Sweet Stik 40 (oz9068)
About this Plan
Midwest Sweet Stik 40 (early version). Radio control sport trainer. Wingspan 54in, wing area 600sq in.
Discontinued kit from Midwest.
Quote: "Here's a pdf file of the original Midwest Sweet Stik 40 as designed by Frank Garcher. Some builders prefer this plan, though it has a much higher parts count than the later Sweet Stick (oz8210) redesign by Pete Frankenthal that was signed off on by Frank Garcher. It also makes an interesting study in how the Stik design has evolved over the years. This earlier design is much more similar to the original Ugly Stik (oz5175) by Phil Kraft and George Walker."

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

User commentsHere is a photo of my Sweet Stik plane built from the Midwest kit [model photo]. Power is a Fox .36 cu in glow engine. I have also built another Sweet Stik by modifying the plans and using an electric motor on 4s lipo's. The green and white Sweet Stik is the electric version [more pics 004].

I know the date on the plan is 1980 but the design was kitted before that, I built my first Sweet Stik in 1975 to replace the Falcon 56 I learned to fly on. I think the kit was out a little before that date.

* 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.
