Aresti-

If you want to sell it I would be interested. I am in Belle Vernon 10 days per month visiting my girlfriend so I can pick it up!

Found a couple other links to the Mystic 90. Interesting plane. It apparently dates to the 1980's - 1990's.

Well,

to be specific it dates back to 1993 when Hanno Prettner, the designer, flew his last F3A World Championships with it in his home country of Austria. OK Model and EZ (a division of OK) produced both kits and ARF versions of Hanno's designs starting with the Supra Fly. All designs from the Magic (1981) backward in time were kitted by MK in various scales but not as ARF's. The Calypso, which followed the Magic in 1983, fell into a "grey zone" in terms of licensing and so it was never really properly kitted despite the fact that a semi and complete ARC kit existed and were distributed in the US by World Engines. However, the Supra Fly, Supra Star and finally the Mystic were all kitted by OK Model both as build kits and ARF's - also in several scales. The Mystic 60 (both ARC and kit) remained elusive though as the OK Model plant burned down in 1993 and so the model never made it to production. The last of Hanno's designs to be kitted was the Sensation (supposedly his 1995 F3A entry) and this was kitted by Yoshioka in a reduced 45 size scale (both ARF and kit if memory serves). Unfortunately Hanno retired from competition and the Sensation never flew in the 1995 WC. A larger OS BGX powered version was built and flown for demo purposes much like the Mystic which also had a BGX powered version.

Great opportunity to use this to reverse engineer a built up version...........just accurate outline drawings would be good to have.

Exactly what I just proposed to Aresti! (And have had on my mind for a few years now...)

Aresti, please see your inbox - just sent you a PM.

David,

I think we had a short discussion about this one RCG a year or two ago-------now, it can actually be done! If plans become available, I want a set, please.

It must be carefully documented, and photo bombed to hell for the greater good!

I guess I need to update my location, I am living in South East Asia now!! Let me know if you want me to take measures, pictures, or anything else on this plane.

i am trying to get a hold on a very old Spanish magazine that had a review of this plane. If memory does not fail, they used a OS 40 with tuned pipe. Should make a very light weight plane...
