Evening gents.
As a fan of Phoenix models (Stan Yoe) I could not resist the chance of an untouched kit of the Quisling when one came up on flea bay.
Funny thing is that I've never seen one and can't find any details on the tinter net 😕

Does any one know anything about this oldie.
Cheers all

Hi Phil. From memory the Quisling was one of Stan's very early EPP slope soarers. Give Stan a ring at Phoenix Model Products. You might as well get the info from source!

Phil

I had one of these but never assembled it. Eventually sold on ebay. If i remember correctly it's a low wing aerobatic slope soarer. It was reviewed in Radio Modeller , i can't remember when but late 90's. Perhaps a forum member with a back catalogue could pull it out. KC??.

"Quisling" seems a strange choice of names, did Stan also do a "Judas" or a "Traitor" ?

I've now have the kit and I've made a start on the fuselage, normal Stan construction except it has plastic doublers for the fuz sections instead of the light ply one's used in his 'newer" kits.

Photo's to follow.

I've no idea regarding a Judas or a Traitor, but Stan has just announced his latest kit, a 50 inch span Chipmunk. For electric power of course. A nice car boot sized model this, and if the kit is up to Stan's usual standard (read superb) then it ought to be a winner......

Details are on the PMP site........and for those whom perhaps haven't looked at the site for a while, Stan is now offering electric powered variations of a couple of his popular slope glider designs. Handy if you don't want to climb hills, or there are none near you.

It took a little finding but here is the link to the new Chipmunk on the Phoenix Model Products site. Details include a link to the plan and instructions.

Thanks for that Piers.

I didn't post a direct link as my browser doesn't seem to show clear ones. I like the way Stan shows both the plan and building instructions for his kits. The lesser experienced builder can then at least see what they're getting into. That said, Stan's designs are pretty straightforward to build with their simplistic structure.

I've bought several of his kits for the electric powered models, and am more than happy with them. His glider designs are an unknown to me, although I'm aware some of his designs - both slope and thermal - have been past comp winners........

I had a Quisling, great flying little plane, funny looking thing quite aerobatic needed a good blow to work well. If memory serves I think the ailerons are correx, I would change those for balsa. The concept was a 2 channel plane with no need for a computer tx.. I used to have it in the boot of my car for quick flights on my way home from work if the wind was right.. I remember putting from 100 feet into granite and I broke a servo arm. Cut the top off replaced the arm and was flying in 10mins..!

In case people are a bit confused by earlier references to Quisling, Judas and traitor, it might help to mention that Vidkun Quisling was a fascist collaborator in Norway who took over the country's government after the Nazi invasion in 1940. After the liberation of Norway and the end of the War he was put on trial for treason and war crimes and shot in late 1945.

As someone remarked, an odd name for a glider!
