Default Looking for plans

Hello. I am new here and I am looking for the plans for the Dynaflite Skeeter. Does anyone have the plans? I have the kit and partial plans. Really just need the plans for the wings and rudder.
Thanks

I have a Dynaflite Skeeter, just opened the box for the second time.

Do you want a series of scans, or paper or a photocopy of the whole plan ?

let me know I, can do what ever you want. I don't know what a full copy would cost but I will call around. I might be able to get it scanned into a PDF file.

Thanks for the replly Wildflyer.
I would love the whole plan but really only need the wing and rudder. I don't know what happened to mine. I hate to just throw out the plain. I would actually like to possibly make it an electric or something.

Any way a copy of the plan would be full size?

Thanks again

There are several ways to do this.

one man, AMA51668, responded in the post about Skeeter bites the dust, with the following:
anyone wishing a set of skeeter plans, please email me direct: rfd@rfd.cc

He must have it ready to go, so he would probably be faster than me.

I could scan the plans, in paper sized pieces, and email them to you. You would print them (they would be full size) and tape them together.

I could go to an office supply store, or Kinko's, and have them copied and mail it to you. The same store may be able to scan the entire plan, and make a file, you could take to a similar store and have it printed, or maybe your computer/printer will print in a tile format that you would tape together.

I would first contact --- AMA51668, and see how he can help you.

Now you have made me take a second look at my Skeeter, it would be a good electric glider.
If you put a motor in yours, 150 watts is plenty. do not fall for a larger heavier motor with a battery that will fly it all day. After the motor shuts off, all that is just weight. I fly ALES contests, my battery is just large enough to fly twice in a row.
Good luck, post some pictures of it as you build.

Thanks Wildflyer.
I have been in contact with RFD and looks like I will just be buying the whole kit from him. I don't know why I want to build this kit as it is old and not reallly what I am looking for but like I said earlier I hate to just throw it away. I will try and find some way to make it an electric with a folding prop so I can land it in grass or something. I am very new to building and converting in fact this will be my first one. Wish me luck.

Thanks again for all your help

Hey that's great!

Many of these older designs are great planes. They still fly well, probably better today than when they were designed, because of the much lighter RC equipment we use today.

Good luck

Do you know anything about electric flying? It is new to me and how is one supposed to know what size motor or what power would work with what plain. Also what prop? Kinda confusing to me.

On home page, go down to, General Electric Discussions, then look for a sticky called everything you want to know about electric airplanes (something like that)

There is far too much information in that thread, than I could type in a week.

There is a huge amount of info for new electric people in Wattflyer, you just have to do a lot of reading. We were all there at one time, so don't feel bad about how much there is to learn.

As far as props go, on a given type or size of motor, a motor with a high KV number will use a smaller prop than a motor with a low KV. ( considering using the same battery )

A high speed plane would use a high KV motor with a small prop.
A low speed plane would use a low KV motor with a large prop. (your glider )
But of course you should stay with the recommended props for your motor.

The amount of power needed is controlled by the weight of the plane.
The thread I referred to has all the info you need.
