Okay, stick with me here... The model in the photo is the Spartan 318, a .15-size sportster that was a joy to fly. The old plans for the photo model aren't drawn well enough to offer here, but I did draw a larger version for .40-size engines. I never actually built the "40", but see no reason why it wouldn't fly as well as its little brother.

William writes: "I completed the Spartan 40 and It flies very well. It is a little tricky to land due to the wing loading. My came out at about 6lbs with a OS 46 AX for power. The plane is pretty fast at around 80 MPH. Loved building it... Thanx, for a great looking design. Everyone who sees it fly wants one.
