Goon Dime Scale short Kit

Goon Dime Scale short Kit

from 19.00

I am offering a limited run of this prototype short kit (5 kits on sale). Don DeLoach and I have collaborated to design this model for FAC competition and sport flying. When we have built our prototypes I expect some minor modifications and then I will offer the final kit at full price. This kit contains 140 laser cut parts on two sheets of 1/16” and one sheet of 1/8” light balsa as well as a sheet of 1/64 ply parts and an optional 7 inch 1.18 P/D prop (laminated from 6 layers of 1/8” with two 1/8th ply hub reinforcements; the prop adds $5). The kit includes all sheet wood parts to make the airframe, nose block, nose plug, spinner and wheels. It also includes gusseted and slotted wing trailing edges and precut fuselage crosspieces. The builder supplies long 1/16th strip wood, tissue and hardware for front end, undercarriage (if desired) and Dt mechanism (if desired)). The Cockpit canopy is constructed with balsa and ply (parts provided) and the clear wrap-around windscreen is made using thin clear plastic using the pattern shown on the plan. The kit will also include a paper pilot, paper trim details, and an instrument panel. Printed Tissue art is also available for this kit as a separate purchase.


Deviations from scale: This model was designed to perform and hopefully eliminate some of the issues that have plagued Goon free flight scale models over the years. The stab has been enlarged to 30% of the wing area, the fin was made slightly taller and the rear fuselage extended by half an inch. The hope is that this will improve stability characteristics. I have set up the wing washout for a left hand circle under power, if you prefer a right hand power pattern you should reverse the warps.
