About this Plan

S-4 Kania - Trevor Faulkners delightful scale rubber S-4 Kania posted by Algy2.

Quote: - "I started looking for high-wing, swept back prototypes with reasonable tail areas and moment arms. The Polish Kania didn't seem to have caught anyone's eye, and so the Aeromodeller scale drawing no 2927 was purchased. After a bit of debate between ambition and common sense it was decided that: the scale would be a multiple of the 1/16th scale drawing; a reasonably tough construction would be used; motor run would have a fair amount of punch; a step-up gear would be use to carry the rubber without tensioning turns and allow a smaller blade prop to be fitted; wings to be detachable; undercarriage to be sprung..."

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
