Firebird pusher jet plans?


Does anyone have plans for the Firebird pusher jet on hobby lobby (or something similar)?

It looks like it flies really well and I have the perfect set up just waiting to go in it.

Thanks

You could take the pics of those and make something pretty close to the Firebird with depron just from scratch. They do fly well, for a beginner...I had a Firebird II and an Aerobird when I was starting out. Good planes to learn on, but when you outgrow them, the radio gear is useless unless you can pass it on to another flier.

Keep in mind that you're going to have to put a nice curve of dihedral in the wing to match what the Firebird/Aerobird has....and then reinforce it so that the wing doesn't fold up. I folded a few factory wings on mine putting them into spiral dives, and reversing direction suddenly to get it to roll

DC I think this is the plane Me Wantee is talking about. Didnt someone post free plans of this style of pusher already? You might want to check the sticky for free plans. Also you could do a search for King Kat or something like that. I hope this helps you out.

Sorry, I should have posted a picture.
I went through the sticky plans quite quickly, but could'nt find one.
I was hoping someone could point me in the right direction to save a little time.
Thanks,
Mick

Did you do a search for Kat? I did one and found this thread. Look at the pdf file. https://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=537793

Here is Another Good Build Thread with Plans


The BobCat thread has a plane just like the Hobby Lobby plane that you are referring to. Here is a link to that thread.

I think this one will give you exactly what you are looking for.

I was thinking the same thing. The price is a real turn off for me.

At $75 yeah I'd rather use plans... at $39 I'd buy the kit though instead.
