Default Updated free Skeeter plans

A long, long time ago I posted free plans to the Skeeter 30 over on RCGroups. I finally got the current version posted for free download and I wanted to share them here. Yes, this plane is also sold as a kit, but this is not an attempt at free advertising. By far, the large percentage of Skeeters being flown are scratch built. I get great satisfaction from seeing my designs flown, doesn't matter if they are bought from me, or scratch built from my free posted plans. I know of literally hundreds of scratch built versions flying around.

Hope to see some Skeeters popping up around here on FG.

Some people have had problems printing the PDF's out and getting the scaling right, so this time I put a ruler in the files for you to check the print. This is as close as I can get to the laser cut kit and still make it easy to scratch out. You can follow the kit manual pretty close while scratching one out.

For those that don't know, the Skeeter is a 30" balsa 3D plane. Got some foamy gear? Tired of foamies? Build one of these.

Have fun building.

Sure. I'll get them arranged better. I formated this set to make the PDF's. I'll do it later tonight or in the morning.
