Help!
Need Plans for Balsa products Brookyn Dodger

Hello,
Several years ago I bought two Balsa Products Replica kits, a Brooklyn Dodger and the Playboy. Problem is I have finally retired and want to start to build them. I opened the Brooklyn Dodger kit and it has Playboy plans

I will pay all costs and will even buy another Balsa Products Brooklyn Dodger kit to get the set of plans. I can remember going to the field with my dad seeing him fly his Brookly Dodger in the grass fields near Roosevelt Field on Long Island. I would love to do the same with my grandson.

Thanks
Steve

Steve, maybe this would help you if you can't find the exact plan you're looking for: http://outerzone.co.uk/plan_details.asp?ID=1056

Steve,
THE PLAN PAGE and the AMA Plan service both list the 55" original plan from Sal Taibi. All of them look the same as the Outerzone plan.
I built a 72" version a year ago. Looks great, but I'm going to have to do some modifications because under power it's a dutchrollin' SOB! If anybody has any ideas I'd be greatful.

More fin area/less rudder movement+exponential usually works for me.
