Volmer VJ-22 Sportsman Plan


This time around, simplicity would be the order of the day. The design requirements were that it be scale, use a single motor, have a low parts count, could easily be cut by hand, and it needed to be durable. The resulting model has a 50-inch wingspan and is built from balsa and a little light plywood. For even faster building, a laser-cut kit is available from Manzano Laser Works.
