Plane plan for a TD 10
9 Attachment(s)
Found this in an old (2003) magazine It was a Freebie plan .. hopefully 'issue' free?
Don't own an .010 but surely some here might.

Thank you earlwb.. Figured it out.. finally :rolleyes:

Nice plans, thanks for sharing. Somewhat similar to a Littlest Stick but still different.
Well getting the image right side up depends on your imaging software or drawing programs. Usually it is a "image rotate" option in the program.

Nice find, Bare. Thanks for posting.

There's just something about a tiny TD .010 powered model. Hmmm, that airfoil looks familiar. Thanks for letting us have a peek.

I started to splice the jpeg files for Perky and ran into a few problems so I started a cad file in hopes in getting all of the parts to the correct scale. I am a little reluctant to finish the cad file as it was presented in the magazine mainly because of it's width and the addition of constant thickness piece to extend the tail. Today's electronics do not need it's width.

What I would like to do is to narrow the fuselage and extend it to the rudder.
If enough fellow modelers are interested in these changes, I would be happy to post the results and I feel this model would be a nice addition to the LaStick file.

I find you still need to make the fuselage at least 1.5 to 1.75 inches wide to get the gear in and be wide enough for the wing to not be wobbly sitting on top. Screwing it down or magnets might help but with rubber bands you need some distance.

Hmmm I didn't scan then upload the plan as a PDF .. cuz I was lazy :D
Also reasoned that as one wing panel was complete and the fuse is more than simple enough to build with the info as presented.
I wouldn't fool with 'improving' the design and Gawd knows I usually can't help myself.
But it's tubbyness is a large part of what makes it cute.. why remove it, as it won''t make it fly any better.

PS : I'll try to upload it as a PDF when I get a spare mo. Eliminating a need to cadify it.

Seems there's more than one Perky...


This one appeared in model aviation in the early nineties..

Likely Mags copy (ied?) each other. Gee...who woulda thought ?
Think the yellow one is 'cuter' though, it has a semi "Spirit of St Louis" look to it, and the airfoil seems thicker

That's a neat little plane.

I checked my modified "full house"LaStick model's width, 1-5/8" and did not have any problems with the RC installation, so, the offer still stands. Thanks.

Take a look at the JMGlaskraft MicroShark or Yellowjacket.
