About this Plan

Vickers Wellington - Scale model for radio control. For two .10 engines.

Quote: - "The Wellington has the precepts called for by the author for a successful twin-engined RC model: good flight qualities without brute engine power, a rather long fuselage and lots of wing beyond the nacelles. Uses two .10s, has a great single-engine performance... "

Update 22/02/2017: added article, thanks to RFJ.

I built one about 12 years ago and converted it to electric and made the wing removable. It is a very stable flyer and could cruise with very little power. The attitude in the air is very scale (tail high) and very impressive. It is not a difficult build but does take time to cut the parts. The one thing I would change from the original would be to make the wing a full D-tube. I found the plan's version was a little too fragile in the outboard sections for my tastes. My version came out to about 5 lbs. flying weight and I used two 200 watt motors using two 3S 1300mah LiPo packs. With some thought, the batteries can be moved forward in the fuselage and of a size to counter the tail weight. Using more powerful motors would also be helpful. This is very much worth the effort to build. It is my understanding that these plans are the basis of several giant scale versions so the scale dimensions are very close as is the basic design.

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.
