Title: MAGICIAN 200 was BABY MAGICIAN
Post by: pat king on July 15, 2019, 12:49:51 PM
The MAGICIAN 200 is a 201 square inch 32 wingspan fixed flap airplane for beam mount .049 to .061 engines. Do not try to fly this airplane with a weak old .049. The airplane has adjustable leadouts, and a tip weight box. The wing uses a NACA 0018 rib profile and is 1 1/16 thick. The CAD plans for the laser cut kit show all parts full size. The kits sell for $64.00 plus Priority Mail shipping of 2 pounds from Zip code 60449.  A full size .pdf file of the plans is available for $5.00 .
To avoid any confusion, this airplane has been re-named the Magician 200. It is a reduced size version of my MAGICIAN 900.

Pat,

What can I say but that model is really nice. There has never been a nicer profile designed than the Magician. Your 1/2A is a worthy addition.

Dennis,
thanks for the kind words.  The Magician is such a nice airplane and there was no 1/2A version. So, I did one. It should be a great little airplane.

Thanks,  Pat

Just as a clarification, this airplane is not the Baby Magician designed by Larry Renger. This is my interpretation of the Magician airplane at 200 square inches using my construction techniques. I believe that kits for the Baby Magician designed by Larry Renger can be purchased from RSM Distribution.

Pat what do you think about an Enya .09 III on this plane ?

An .09 is a lot of engine for a 200 square inch airplane. If you use an .09 you may need a fair amount of tail weight. You will probably need to use a very flat pitch prop or turn the prop over so it is backwards. That would help keep it from having combat ship speed.

 How about a Cox 049 Medallion? Would it work?  Again thanks...

Gil,
A .049 Medallion should do well on this airplane. It is not as powerful as some later .061 engines, but it is nice and light. Medallion engines are very friendly when compared to a TD. The TD .049 engines are great competition engines, but they prefer a pressure fuel system. I like my Medallion .049, it is easy to start, easy to needle, and runs great on suction fuel feed.

Thanks,  Pat

Hi Pat, how about the Brodak .049? Ed.

Ed,
I am not familiar with the Brodak .049 engines. I understand the first version produced good power and would be a fine engine for the airplane. I also understand that the second version was underpowered. I have heard it described as: " It wouldn't pull the skim off of a Latte!" I wouldn't recommend the second version Brodak .049. I can't tell you how to identify which one you have.
