Agreed. I've noticed a number of plans from Flying Models and they have a full sized plan service. I've also noticed some lately from Full Sized Plans website that were password protected. It would be a shame to lose the whole thread and it might be prudent to remove those already posted.

Good call Rufus.

If anyone sees a plan that shouldn't be here, I'd suggest a pm to the poster to please remove it. Files get passed around and not everyone is aware of what is or isn't ok to post. Self-policing this thread will be the best approach.

When I was younger living in Michigan back in the late 70s, my neighbor would fly an old timer he use to call the "The White Cloud". It was a high wing, I think an old free flight converted to RC. Does that ring a bell with anyone?

Agreed

Any further plans request made here buy me will say asking for only pre 1970 plans.
all the plans I have posted to date should be befor 1970. butt then again sents some came off the public enternet and could have been reworked to some degree the date and copyright info may have been tampered with or removed its hard to tell for sure. I'm by no means an expert on the subject.

I too would hate to loose such a great thread.

Thanks!
I can't remember ever seeing a plan for a Tri-pacer, or is it my memory slipping?

Yep it dose the White Cloud made me the pilot I'm to day. the funny part is I was living in Pontiac Michigan at the time. my dad got the old plane from a friend of his at work. one of the nicest old men i had every met his name was Al Johnson. when I used to fly this thing with dad and Al I could set the transmitter down on the hood of my dads car go and open a Coke and drink most of it go back pick up the transmitter and get back to flying. a super cool old airplane.

Ha! small world. This was up in a little town called Richmond, north of Mt Clemens. 32 mile road to be exact.

The White Cloud flew great, he had it in the air constantly.

Here's the other plane in that series for the K&B Infant, the Funster. I resized the PDF, so it should print out full size.

Noted. Since the Cloud Buster is still being produced by Guillow's as the Flyboy, I'm going to pull my zip of the plan. Mine came from an old copy of the Comet plan, but I don't know if Guillow's had new plans drawn up. Why take the risk?

Funster (Gnat)


Hi, I recently built the Funster which is also called the Gnat from the M.A.L. kit. It uses a Parkzone brick with PZ P-51 motor and Prop. A fake foam glow plug motor covers the electric motor. It's a blast to fly in the evening at the park. Climbs like a rocket and glides like the proverbial brick but sure is a fun classic model! Bill
