Hi, I was just wondering. Is there a kit or a set of plans for the staggerwing on the market right now? I"ve always wanted to build and fly one, but can't seem to find anything anywhere I've looked so far.

thanks

Ziroli keeps threatening to finish his plans for the Staggerwing but his web site says he's pushed that back until at least next year.
The only other option I know of is the M.A.N. Staggerwing plans in 1/4 scale (it's huge). They're no longer available from M.A.N., but I bought a set a long time ago before they quit selling them.
I'd let them go for what I have into them ($40 + shipping) but I don't even want to start looking through all my "stash" unless someone actually wants them.

I've never built the model and probably won't just because I have so many projects scheduled ahead of it. I don't think I would live long enough before I got to building the Staggerwing.

Your Staggerwing looks great. They do fly nice in the air. the only complaint I have with them is ground handling. If its a little squirrelly on the ground this is an easy fix with a gyro on the rudder. Turned my Staggerwing into a real *****cat.
Just a thought.

Default Staggerwing Plan

There is a 1/12 scale Staggerwing plan available from AMA. It was published in Model Aviation, April '91.

Very nice looking plane.

I managed to locate some detail sources including factory drawings and have been drawing plans for one for since last fall. I recall Royal (Marutaka) had a kit for one, is this it?
