German ebay is your best chance, but do know that the airplane was called HOBO in Germany. Original Svenson kits are expensive !

I built one in the mid '70s and still have it. I am in the process of reconditioning it now but would love to find a kit. I had a Enya .45 in it originally and will be putting the same exact engine back in it. I loved the way it flew and it was the best Sunday flyer ever.

It was designed by Don Dewey of RCM fame. I sold a NIB kit last year. You will gonna have to be patient to find this kit and I estimate cost will be at least 350$.

You can still get the plans from RCM.

Cheers!

Both the Hobo and Wayfarer plans are still available on the RCM plans site. The Hobo was originally designed for REM control and featured fully sheeted wings. The Wayfarer is basically the same airplane, but the wings use "egg-crate" construction and have open rib bays. The Svenson kit was reviewed by RCM in the December, 1973, issue. This makes me feel really old! Good luck with your kit search, but you can always build from plans if you don't find one.

svenson wayfarer


I have a wayfarer kit that I originally bought from dick tichenor at rc modeler magazine. They had gotten a case of them from svenson to do a test review on them and I guess this was the last one left. He had mailed me the kit before I could even get the money to him. Just nice people. Funny thing is when I got the kit the instructions were in about four different languages,but no english instructions. I haven't gotten around to building it yet. Good luck on finding one.

I have a kit (sorry, not for sale at this time). Do you need patterns for specific parts? I have not had good luck getting plans copied. Around here no one seems to be able to get them scaled correctly.

Cancel your payment RCM has not been sending out any plans. I placed my order back on 12-12-12 and never received them. With no response from my many many emails or phone calls. I am not alone do a search you'll see.

Sorry to say
