FLYING SCALE AVIATION

MBB 209 MONSUN 63" SPAN RETRO MODEL

A note from the designer

 

Along with the Miles Sparrowhawk, this model is a legacy design from the old "Graham's Electric Airport" website circa 2003, which is the precursor to Timeless Wings. The Monsun was originally designed for geared brushed ferrite motors with nicad cells, but now in 2019 continues to give great service with a Turnigy brushless motor on direct drive and 4s lipo cells.


The original plans have ended up on various websites over the years, but are presented here along with hitherto unseen photographs, the original construction notes and a new video shot this month which may assist anyone wishing to build this model in the future.


Enjoy!

 The CAD file for the original Monsun is available here in  DXF format, along with the original build instructions, flight reports, photos and construction manual.  Please note, these are not updated to reflect current thinking, and all  relate to the model as built with 2002 technology, however will provide a good starting point for those who wish to adapt for contemporary propulsion systems...
