After learning the basics of RC flight in a PT-40 ARF in 1995, I got my first KIT-built plane from Tower Hobbies that same year: a Malibu .40 trainer. This plane was wonderful. I enjoyed it for several years, even adding a cusotm made drop box. My claim to fame (still to this day) amongst my friends and family members was that I would release al sorts of items, especially cargo that would land under parachutes! I added lightsticks to it and flew it on a couple of fun flights at night. I had a lot of fun with this plane! I went on to more "ambitious" RC projects, and 20 years later I would like to celebrate by building a Midwest Malibu plane.
My old plans are now in some landfill. I have not been able to find them. I tried searching websites for purchasing plans and no luck. Last postings I found related to this plane is one on 2005 in RCGroups. (http://www.rcgroups.com/forums/showthread.php?t=350492)
and another in 2009 in RC Canada of someone selling it, I contacted him but no reply yethttp://www.rccanada.ca/rccforum/showthread.php?t=94372
I contacted MIDWEST with my intent of buying at least just the plans, and they replied: "Sorry, we no longer have any parts or plans available for any planes."
So, ANY help in finding a set of plans: copied, purchased from someone who owns a kit, or from a plans service, or from the original designer, etc. would be appreciated!
If anyone has an old KIT stored away in an old closet or shop, I will buy it "AS IS" as long as the KIT includes the plans.
Any help is appreciated!
