Default Need plans for a great planes easy sport 40

I crashed my easy sport 40 arf last week. We have snow up here and I lost some pieces for the fuse in the snow. All your help will be appreciated. Thanks

Here's the parts listing off the GP website.

http://www.greatplanes.com/parts/gpma0150pl.html

The plans cost about $15, which is the same that you would pay to have copies made at Kinko's.

Good luck with your repair.

mclina, Thanks for the post. Looks like there is a lot of useful info on that page. I didn't realize they posted all of there manuals and parts descriptions. This should get me on my way. Thanks again.

I wasn't aware they had full sized plans for the Easy Sport 40. It >was< offered only as an ARF wasn't it? There's a 24 page instruction bookelet for it available online. One wonders why the plans were needed. Or maybe they >did< offer a kit version. I would sure like to know. I was just looking at it as a scratch build myself. But not willing to send $20 to find out if they are buildable plans. Anyone know for sure what the deal is?

I LOVE THIS PLANE. Oh I forgot, MaxCim motor&esc geard,13x10apc-e prop,5s lipo.[8D] This was a kit before a arf version.My friend has the 40 size all framed up.There was a 60 size also.

OK, that expalins the "full size plans". I may have to send away for those. There's one, built, for sale at my LHS, but it's gas, and I want to build my own, conventional gear, and like, you... electric,.... 5s?!?! ,... Holy __. I think it's a much nicer looking model than a Falcon 56

My Easy Sport 40 was a kit.  I love it! It has outlasted many other planes in my hanger and I take it out EVERY time I fly!  I've had it for 7 years now and am going to strip and recover it soon!  I love this plane!

I realize it's been some time since you posted this, but I've been searching for Easy Sport 40 plans for the GPMA0150 kit and I came across your message. I found the kit in my basement this week and unfortunately... no plans. The kit is otherwise in great shape. Any chance you still have the plans you ordered or know how to get them? I contacted Horizon Hobby and they told me they no longer have the plans in stock. I hate to see this kit go to waste, but it's worthless without the plans. Thanks.

Have you checked the "usual" online suspects?
