My design of the Fokker Spin was published in the January 2014 issue of Quiet and Electric Flight International magazine.  The editor did a nice job putting together the article, which included a pull-out plan and detailed construction photos. 

See more details here on what steps you can take to get one of your radio control model airplane designs published.  The Spin is my 6th model airplane design to appear in the press.  It takes a bit of work reaching out to the appropriate people at the magazine to get this process started.  But the task can be done, and it is very rewarding to see the finished product in the magazine.

The Fokker Spin is an historic aircraft, paving the way for the numerous fighter aircraft Anthony Fokker later designed for the German Air Force in World War 1.  The Spin takes advantage of Horizon Hobby’s microelectronics which is used in their ParkZone line of foam ready to fly models.  This control and motor suite is small, affordable and ideally suited for indoor flyers like the Spin.
