Das Ugly Stick - RC gas model. Quote "The original concept of the Ugly Stik was to design a radio controlled aircraft which could be built in an absolute minimum of time. Its purpose was towards a flying test bed for new proportional control ... which could be considered as expendable." The airplane that took 3 evenings to design and finish became one of the most built and flown designs in RC.
Update 20/08/2012: Added another version of this plan, courtesy of AndyWard. This one is the original plan by Phil Kraft. Have accordingly moved the PDFvector format plan sideways to now become the supplement file.
Alternate plan version. This is a modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format, by Guy Fuller 1997. Update 23/01/12: Fixed the issue of different scale on the 2 pages of this plan.
Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
