Hi All,

Does anyone know of a three view for this one? I have the RCM and Flying Models plans/ articles, and the photos from March/ April ‘58 Sport Aviation, but sadly no drawing as yet..

I’ll look, but am pretty sure that if I had a three view I’d have built one! What a tempting choice. (Looks a lot like a Cricri.)

I doubt that any "official" 3vs exist, given the purpose of the airframe, and Ray Stits' nature of not over promoting his designs. It's possible an enquiry to the EAA may yield something.  Ray didn't have the assortment of light weight, fairly dependable engines back then, that we have now, and pretty much abandoned further development. He took all his plans off the market when he focused his company on aircraft covering materials.

 The Milholland Legal Eagle XL looks quite a bit like the Skeeto.

Good luck with your search. That is a neat looking plane.
