Following a discussion on this group--Restoring a SA-6B--I went ahead and ordered a copy of the plans for the Stits SA-6B (revised tandem two-place) Flut-R-Bug from the archives of the San Diego Air & Space Museum.  The model I really prefer, though, is the SA-6C (side-by-side two-place).

If there are any current or former SA-6C builders or plans owners out there, I am looking to find out whether or not the SA-6C is actually a completely different set of plans or perhaps just an addendum to the SA-6B plans.  Of course, either way, I am looking for those drawings as well.

If you're wondering, this the same Ray Stits as the fabric covering system.  He was a prolific designer and builder and sold many plans and kits in the 1950s and 1960s, but withdrew the plans from the market to concetrate on the more profitable fabric covering business.  Here is a link to a page on the many aircraft by Ray Stits.

Thanks!

Matthew

Bumping my own post...I am still looking for help in locating info and eventually drawings for the Stits SA-6C Flut-R-Bug, the side-by-side model.  Thanks and regards, Matthew

Mathew,

 

Carl Hollinger (look in What our Members are Building) is rebuilding a Bravo, might drop him a line if you haven't already...

I have been looking around and found that there may have only been 1 made (SA-6[5]C). May have been prototyped but not marketed...

flut-r-bug 

I see you are already in touch with Carl.... just read down on the other topic... Doh!

 

Good luck!
