If it is the same a Major Hobbies Mystery Ship I have a copy of the instr book. I may be able to scan it to a disc and e-mail to you, if not I will make a photocopy and send it snail mail. I should know if I can scan it at work in the next day or two.

Send me a good e-mail address and I can send you jpegs of the scanned pages. Even as jpegs these are quite large to print clearly so even if you have at least 10 megs for the e-mail you still need to take off the pages as they are sent.

Please don't post your e-mail address to the forum.

Brain,

If you want the rest of the manual you have to let me know you've cleaned out your e-mail box.

Thanks SOCAL!!!!

Building this plane is no task for the weary. I think I will fly this spirit to death and leisurely work on the myster ship. Going to use carbon cloth on the tail and end of the fuselage for sure.

I am working on a Mystery ship I am at the fuselage does any one know the placement of the laser cut balsa Aileron/Flap servo lead guides. There is no drawing for them this is real confusing, it appears that they are like a former but the plans show it as a curved item and the function is anybodys guess Help.

Re Mystery Ship

All you do is push your Flap/Aileron leads through the hole in the fuselage and that curved former just guides them toward the front so you can plug them into your receiver.

It is a builder’s model – got mine almost done, just need to sand and cover.

Hope this helps you.

Thanks for the input, did you make it a T tail or mid tail I had heard the T tail might be a little weak.

I made mine a T tail and it feels strong to me. I’m not cheap on glue. There is a small horizontal flex at the stab but nothing to indicate that it is weak.

Happy building and flying.

Actually, It isn't the T- tail itself that will have the problem. It will break the fuse just in front of the fin.

I had a Mystery Ship with T-tail converted to electric. T-tail itself has never failed. It was the wing that failed on high speed. Although at the time it was 14 years of age.
Here is a video of t-tail functioning in the air:
