wondering if any of you have DerJager plans and if so do you have a sheet 15? my set is missing that sheet. For that matter, is there any kind of written instruction for that plans set?
Thanks!

Hot Wings,
Do you actually have the complete kit for the Quickie? If so I might be interested in purchasing it.

On the flip side, what are the grail plans wanted? Early dimensioned RV6 and Bucker Jungmeister are two for me. I know of some non commercial plans for GeeBee and Fokker D1 that exist, but they are only available if you go on the grail trail that the owners went on. Put the same effort that they did and they will share. Ask what it would cost and they laugh.

I have probably about 30 plans for RC. They run or at least use to from $5-50. A $25-50 plan for a homebuilt means you bought them at least 30 years ago. I would love to have the Bucker plans. They are about $1000. The $150 plans are pretty much gone too.
If you really plan to build, $1000 is not really bad, but unless collecting plans is the hobby, thousands in plans when it could buy you a plane is somewhat a case of miss appropriated funds. I will get a set of Flybaby plans sometime. I have enough info to build one from the internet but it is fun to hold the real deal. So many times I passed over buying because the were always there. I am always surprised there is no trade tent full of plans at Oshkosh. The only commercial plans I have ever seen new at Oshkosh were Acrosport at the demonstration building and Clement Tailwind mods he sold out of his plane. I don’t know if Aircraft Spruce has any behind the counter. It’s pretty expensive to have a booth, but I’m surprised there is not a spot you can drop off ten sets of plans to sell. 100 designs with ten sets would be a nice place. Swaps maybe too.

Way back when, plans were sold from tied-down airplanes and tents in the campground. Then came Tom ...

Im in last place for the least amount of plans. N3 Pup, Ultra pup, J3 kitten, and Littlewing L1-5
I'm probably in the last place. I have plans for a Corby Starlet from which I built mine oh so many moons ago, and resides in my hangar. I also have plans for a Taylor Titch of which I've built most of the metal parts but none of the wooden ones, and I also have drawings for a Thatcher CX4 and my very own, one-of-a-kind Melendez MB.1 FirStar. The FirStar is currently nearly finished in Kyneton, Victoria, Australia, near Melbourne. I also have the builder's manual for my Arion Lightning, currently being slowly painted. Slowly because I'm slow. What can I say?

Are your Pik 26 Mini Sytky plans full working plans, and can they be read (understood) by us commoners? I've always admired that mini plane.
