Beginners Ringmaster Laser Cut C/L Kit
This is a laser cut kit for the Beginners Ringmaster. The Sterling Beginners Ringmaster was Kit S30. This is NOT a Sterling kit. The airplane has a 21 inch wingspan and 95 square inches of wing area. This version of the Beginners Ringmaster has fuselage and empennage shapes true to the Sterling S1 Ringmaster. The original S30 kit has shapes similar to the S1 Ringmaster but not the same as the S1 Ringmaster. The wing is an 1/8” thick solid balsa assembly. The solid wing gives a more crash resistant or more easily repaired airplane than the built-up wing of the Baby Ringmaster. The airplane is designed for a Cox Babe Bee or a Cox Surestart engine. New Surestart engines are available from Cox International. The use of a Surestart engine requires a Perfect #1 fuel tank, or a Brodak #BH501 fuel tank.
The kit includes a ¼” balsa fuselage and a pair of ¼” balsa engine mount gussets, a 3/32” balsa horizontal stabilizer, elevator, vertical stabilizer, and rudder, an 1/8” balsa wing and two 1/8” balsa trailing edge pieces, an 1/8” aircraft plywood engine mount, a 1/16 plywood leadout guide, a hardwood button bellcrank mount, a bellcrank and control horn, pushrod wire, and formed landing gear. The kit comes with full size CAD plans with all parts shown full size. The kit does not include wheels or an engine. This is not a kit to collect, it is to build and fly and be a kid again.
