Default Lil Jumping Bean( original Kit) WTB

Looking for an original Carl Goldberg Lil Jumpn Bean .049 control line plane... The new ones made by broderak can not accomadate old Blackwidow,Golden -Bee motors... The old style had a plywood firewall not slotted. This is not just for collection but a very speacial gift for a needy nephew.. Building and flying with him will be great fun while he is still able..Will Pay Good cash for the replier to this AD!!

Isaw one on Ebay a couple of weeks ago. Fellow wanted $125!!!!!!!!!! I've also seen more reasonable around $40.
I had at least half a dozen of these back in the '70's. My favorite plane until Imoved up to the bigger stuff.
Good Luck!

There are no plans, just assembly drawings. Everything was notch-fit. You could practically build it without any direction at all.

Scags, If you read the Kit Features it sais "Beam or Radial Mount" that means it will fit a Black Widow or Golden Bee, and even if it didn't it would be super simple to make a radial mount.

Download the plans for the Stunt Chimp and give it an airfoiled rather than flat wing. That comes to about $4 in balsa and is roughly the same thing.

Here's the link to the free Stunt Chimp plans. Be sure to back-up and check out the Aeromaniac's Site. Heman Lee did a great job with it.

Funny, modifying the Brodak offering is the easiest path. Other than scratching new wings and entire airframes from plans. Just sayin'. It would take all of 15 minutes probably.
