Farman 400 - Scale RC or FF model of the 1930s French light plane, for .020 power. Wingspan 38 1/4, 228 sq. in area, AUW 10.2oz.
Quote: - "The subject of this article, the 400, is a very clean and functional three place cabin monoplane powered with a 120 horsepower Renault engine ...compare this drawing to many of the old time free-flight models such as the Miss America and the Flea, by Scientific. You will find the moments and areas very similar. Is there any reason why this model shouldn't be the best flyer of the season? For either .020 versions (Ace pulse or Cannon two channel super-mini R/C) the weight will run to about 10+ oz. For the free-flight version it should be around 7oz. The model should also make an excellent jumbo rubber scale subject with very slight modifications. It is quite easy to build and there are no tricks or special talents required. Just follow the plans and you should have no trouble or problems at all... "

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
