Here's a pic of my Mooney, pity there aren't too many R/C model plans for it.

You need to do a lot more research on copyright before you can make such claims.

OK Jim. my defense rests! I still think that we are making a quarter scale out of a peanut but let's forget it and get back to having some fun.

Maule is a nice plane, gets in and out of anywhere, a bit slow and passes every thing on the road except the gas station but the ideal bush plane, if you can close the doors you can take off.

Not wanting to rekindle the flames, I'm withdrawing my question. Please, on with the plans!

The only kit/plan I am aware of is the PAC models Mooney MK21 now currently sold by Eureka Aircraft in Eureka, Arkansas. He also released a smaller .25 engine size version recently.

There have been a few over the years but they seem very sparce for models compared to the number parked at airports around the country but then I am often told that a Mooney is nothing more than a Piper Comanche with a crooked vertical fin! Having driven both I do not agree but then it goes back to the old Ford Chevy debate and is strictly my personal preference.

I did recently see a British company was advertising a Mooney. Oddly they were advertising it in 2 different places under 2 different company names but the same address and phone number. I tried to query them a few times to get more info but never got a response so I do not know if they were actually producing them yet .

I think I remember a Mooney Mk 21 RC plan in a 1960's American Aircraft Modeler. And the old Jetco company had a (M-18?) mite for ff, cl, or rc. Someone in the RC club I flew with before my USAF hitch actually buit one, and instead of fitting it out with a nice single channel escapement, or maybe a nice llightweight Galloping Ghost system, filled the fuse with a nice heavy Kiick Induction system, with all the extra circuitry and relays to get rudder, elevator, and throttle, along with coupled ailerons. Final weight was over 3 pounds, on about 275 square inches. He went as far as to try an OS Max .30 RC, but that didn't have enough power to pull that hog into the air. With a lighter ssystem, it might have flown on a .15 on Galloping Ghost.
It crashed without flying.

That would be Gerry Nelson's version published in the May 1968 issue. 70" span, Kraft proportional and Enya 60.

Was looking at full scale Musketeers & Sundowners for restoration as a cheaper way to continue my flying lessons-until I checked my reality wallet & started looking for the model. Anyone?
