SWEET-P - Radio control sport/pylon model for O.S. Max 10 FSR power.
Quote: - "The Sweet-P sport pylon airplane was designed with one primary objective in mind - fun! Sweet-P does not meet the needs of any major competition category nor does it represent a major breakthrough in aeronautical technology. It does, however, fill the need for an easy to build, scale looking airplane that is inexpensive to build and operate. It is also easy to transport, and is capable of carrying a standard size radio control system with two servos. Small battery packs and sub-miniature servos are not required.
Sweet-P is a slightly enlarged 1!2A racer designed around the O.S. Max 10 FSR. It was designed primarily for sport aerobatics rather than all-out racing. It uses a nice thick symmetrical airfoil for excellent lift and soft stall characteristics. The O.S. Max .10 FSR has plenty of power to provide good vertical performance. This airplane was also designed to be as simple as possible to build and maintain. Only two channels were used on the prototype (aileron and elevator). However, a third servo for throttle could be added if sub-miniature servos were used. As a matter of convenience, the aileron servo was installed in the fuselage. While one might think trim changes would occur due to the wing shifting, a snug fitting wing will eliminate this. In the two seasons of flying the Sweet-P, I have not encountered any problems in trim changes with this aileron set-up.
Don't let the wing be a stumbling block. It can be built in a conventional manner (balsa ribs and spars) if foam cutting equipment is not available. However, a foam core sure makes for a rigid wing that is light in weight..."
Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
