The "Baby Pilot" is for 1/2A, think he was refering to the Pilot BOX FLY.

Following are a cleaner version of the Pilot Baby Plans. I am not sure if anyone has had much experience with this plane. But I essentially learned to fly with this bird. I would simply toss over a field of tall grass and after a couple of crazy flights I got the hang of it. Of course it was flown with full size radio gear at the time (mid 80's), weighed a ton but still flew very well and had a decently flat glide.

It is on my short list to build another!

Ripplewave --

Thanks for posting the cleaner plan set. I've combined both pages into a single PDF for those interested. Since the dimensions are given in mm, here are the conversions to the nearest English measurements.

1.5 mm ==> 1/16"
2 mm ==> 3/32"
3 mm ==> 1/8"
6 mm ==> 1/4"
12 mm ==> 1/2"

Length: 26 3/4"
Span: 36 5/8"
Area: 210 sq. in.

A number of folks have built these planes, expecially the DNU, and been quite pleased with the performance.

EDIT: Check Select Hobbies. Steve carries a number of good 1/2A kits, including the DNU and Skydrill.
Thanks, I am going to get started on this DNU with a Novel .061 it should really scream.............

I make a request because I'm a lover of company aircraft Pilot of any size engine friend who has plans and can upload them.
The same will do.
I have several RC and CL.
I think it was one of the best companies that no longer exist.
Historically therefore, it was good to happen such an effort.
Sure there are many friends who will want to have those plans.

I have three Pilot kits right now waiting to be built. I just wish I had a wide format scanner to scan them and post them.

And I therefore expect a large scanner to scan these plans I have.
I will not be scanned by the scanner in a small pieces of A4 page as I did the Baby or the Micro parasol.
Would expect the court when you're ready.
Thanks Elijah

You can also try tacking plans to the wall and taking a high quality photograph of them. You will of course need to adjust for scales at printing shop.

Because I still have part of the Box Fly and want to get it back together. I at least need the wing plans or at least the root and tip rib patterns to burn another styrofoam wing but would prefer a built up wing.

Thank you.
