Dick Stouffer's Simplex - Britplan Build Off January 2013 to June 2013
Being in the USA, almost all of my building has been of models designed here in the states. I thought it would be interesting to build something designed from the other side of the big pond. After searching the OuterZone for a design that qualified for the Brit plan build off, I decided on the Simplex by Dick Stouffer and soon realized that while the magazine wasn't from the states, the designer was. Oh well, onward anyway.
The article is from the May 1964 Aero Moddler magazine and I found it at the OuterZone website: http://www.outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=3726
Why the Simplex? A few reasons, first it's simple! Second, I can build it from what I have at hand. Thirdly, I want to try the throttle sleeve on my Cox Medallion, I've had this engine for decades and never tried the throttle, so now's the time.
