About this Plan

Sneaky Pete. Radio control sport model. Wingspan 43in, area 323 sq in, for Fox .15 power.

Quote: "Want something original, a bit off-beat, not bad looking and really high on performance? Then our .15 powered elevatror/aileron machine is just for you, and best of all it's economical to operate..

Sneaky has two basic parameters before a line was drawn. They were:

1. Maximum performance at minimum cost
2. Realistic appearance.

Let's look at minimum cost first. This obviously means a 2-channel radio. If you insist you can use one of the new 3 or 4 channelbrisk systems for a full-house setup. It will take a little squeezing, but it can be done. Next, an economical engine. A Fox .15 (less throttle) fills the bill here, plus the Fox is light in weight and parts are available.

Now, how do we get maximum performance out of tis combination? Well, forst off the ship has to be light, light light. The original Sneaky weighed 27oz ready to fly...

Sneaky Pete, MAN, April 1974.

* 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.
