Sporty Forty- RC Sport Bipe for RC. Wingspan 40in, length 40in, engine .40 power.
Quote: - "How about that low aspect ratio? You don't see many biplanes like that do you? All I can say is - try it, you'll like it. The Sporty Forty has one of the most amazing speed ranges you'll ever see. You can throttle back and float along at about 20 miles an hour, or pour on the coal to it and zip along about 70. Caution - don't put too much throw into the elevators or the Ailerons. The short coupling makes it very responsive to control surface actions..."

* Credit field
The Credit field in the Outerzone database is designed to recognise and credit the hard work done in scanning and digitally cleaning these vintage and old timer model aircraft plans to get them into a usable format. Currently, it is also used to credit people simply for uploading the plan to a forum on the internet. Which is not quite the same thing. This will change soon. Probably.
This model plan (like all plans on Outerzone) is supposedly scaled correctly and supposedly will print out nicely at the right size. But that doesn't always happen. If you are about to start building a model plane using this free plan, you are strongly advised to check the scaling very, very carefully before cutting any balsa wood.
