Default Plans for "Honker" 1972-1973 model

Good day everyone,

at the end of 1972 or early in 1973 RC Modeler featured a small 36" slab wing airplane called the Honker. I believe it was a Mark Smith kit. He also did a slab wing Pitts Bipe. If anyone has any old RC Modeler magazines and could look for the article on the Honker, I would like to get copies. Also wondered if anyone who has the RCM plans catalog books could look and see if the Honker is still listed and what plan number it was.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Regards from the Land of OZ,

Kansasbill:

I see it's been a while since you posted your request, but I just now signed up and read yours when I did a search for info on the Honker Bipe.

I have the kit done by Mark's Models and was kinda looking to see what engine guys had used on it.

Anyway I looked on RCM Magazine web site and found the plans listing and they still have them. Here are the plan numbers and I believe that when you buy a plan they include a copy of the original construction article with it.


HONKER 1 #529 6/73 6.00

HONKER BIPE 1 #552 3/74 6.00


Hope this helps,

Default Honker

I have one built and one framed up and a kit, The last time I flew it was with a Saito .30, a .19 or .25 two stroke works great. All of mine are kit models, I will look at getting the RCM plan as well, I believe SIG still has the wing panels available.
