Goon 24" free flight Scale short Kit

Goon 24" free flight Scale short Kit

from 32.00

Don DeLoach and I have collaborated to design this model for FAC competition and sport flying. This kit contains 140 laser cut parts on several sheets of 1/16”, 3/32”, and 3/16” light balsa as well as a sheet of 1/64 ply parts and an optional 10 inch 1.2 P/D prop (laminated from 9 layers of 1/8” with ply hub reinforcements; the prop adds $10). 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, precut fuselage crosspieces and front end parts to accommodated Gizmo Geezer, or K&P adjustable thrust buttons. The builder supplies long 3/32nd strip wood, tissue and hardware for front end, undercarriage (if desired) and Dt mechanism (if desired)). The kit will also include a paper pilot, paper trim details, and an instrument panel. Printed Tissue art will also be 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 or just build it symmetrical.

To simplify ordering I have devised five basic kit purchase options (you can customize your order by filling your cart as needed on the various product pages):

  1. Bare bones - a simple short kit with all items described above excluding the plan (you buy the digital plan here and print it yourself and select your prop if you want one here)

  2. Basic - Short kit, and a single sheet folded printed plan (select your prop if you want one here ).

  3. Basic plus - Short kit, a single sheet folded printed plan and laser cut black tissue decals.

  4. Partial meal deal - short kit, printed plan, 10.5 inch prop kit, and laser cut black tissue decals.

  5. Full meal deal - short kit, printed plan, 10.5 inch prop kit, and full cream printed tissue set.

  6. and 7. same as 4 and 5 but with Gismo Geezer 10” prop and front end assembly
