About this Plan

Eastwind - Free flight power model.

Quote: - "The Eastwind was designed in 1954 and has since undergone steady flight tests. During the past few years, eight Eastwinds have been built, of which six were for.09 (two lost on trim flights), one for .049 and one for .15 engines. Based on experience acquired during building and testing, changes in the design have successively been introduced to improve its performance."

Quote: - "Hoh Fang Chiun was a prolific designer in all categories and this simple design shows some of his skills." This plan was printed in Flying Models Decade of Designs (1), published 1960.

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.
