  • Parsons 2 place plans

    Hi All
    I need a set or copy of PArsons 2 seat plans. i have a 95% rebuilt Parsons 2 seat and need to check some dimensions. Anyboday have a set they are willing to sell.

    I have received a set of the newer plans (kindly sent free and very quickly) with the two masts further apart. However, the PArsons I am working on is the original design with the masts closer together, so the quest for plans continues.

    Thanks for your help

    Best regards

    Viv

      Hi Viv

      That's an interesting project - not many in the UK - could it be one of these two or maybe another ?

      G-BUWH / G-IIXX

      When do you hope to get it up and flying ?

      Regards

        Hi Steve in the UK

        Hi Steve

        The Parsons is G-BTFE

        It's almost complete, just some issues with the sticks and hand hang check to sort out.

        Best regards

          Hi Viv

          Thanks for that - it would be good to see this machine back in the skies once again - please let us know how the restoration proceeds.

          One photo of it here from 2007

            VIV during training I flew 2 Parsons, 1 with the tail of bent al. as shown in the plans and 1 with a large hor. stab. made from figlass and an aerofoil shape. The difference was remarkable, the standard one was very difficult to keep out of oscillation, the modified one could be flown by any lower order primate...yeh yeh I know, it was...
            so if you intend building one I would suggest a modified tail.
            just my experience in Parsons,
            cheers, bruce

              I've always thought the Parsons 2 place would make a great trainer for those planning on flying open non Dominator type machines. The use of a Viking engine would probably be perfect for this design.

                I believe

                That's the reason it's called a PARSON TRAINER.. As to learn how to fly and Not Occilate with the basic tail..
                Then it becomes easy with all the other models..
                JUST SAYIN

                  I've trained in four. Rusty Nance's Air Commands (both iterations) Steve's Parsons, and Maxie Wildes Air Command. I did not notice a tendency of any of them to oscillate.

                  However...... Bill Bigge gave me the controls of his RAF 2000 and it scared the hell out of me!!! I could not get it to stop!!!!
                  I have not tried one (RAF)with a horizontal.

                    Post 1 states the newer plans have the masts further apart , anyone know why ?

                    Any other major changes in the newer plans ?

                    Are the newer plans available to download ?
