I believe Flying models has plan CF721 as the S330 commuter as a co2 FF model. Would convert nicely to electric or if enlarged small gas

Cool thanks Tom ... with that BIG body you would be able to put in a GOOD size fuel tank for twin .60s

Hi,
Try this download :
http://members.fortunecity.co.uk/slmohr/rcplan6.htm
The Skyvan plan is on that page
Very difficult to get a good 3-view drawing of the plane or the Shorts 330 or 360 version.

Anyway....enjoy

Reuben

Cambria Model Aircraft (UK) put out a Shorts Skyvan 3 R/C kit (96" wingspan) back in the 1980's. It took some scrounging on my part but I was able to track one down some years ago. It's still sitting in the box waiting to be built.

The book The Advanced Guide to Radio Control Sport Flying by Douglas R. Pratt (TAB Books, Inc., Blue Ridge Summit, PA, 17294) has a construction article on the Skyvan.
