Quote: - "High performance free flight or radio controlled soarer" Plan shows optional power pod, for .020 to .049 engine. Quote from article text: - "With the possible exception of Jetco's line of Thermic Gliders no other glider has done more to get modelers started in the fine art of soaring, than Cleveland's Condor kit. When this kit was first released back in the 1940 era it's fantastically low price coupled with a six foot span and graceful appearance made it an outstanding favorite with modelers the world over. Even through the years since, it remained a steady favorite despite small periodic increases to offset rising costs. However, since last year this gem of modeling design has ceased to become available. Reflecting upon this, we thought it a fine idea to do a new and similar design not unlike the original, but with refinements in structure, plan outlines, dihedral and optional radio installation. As we had fully expected, the new design, proved to be every bit as able as the original for thermal soaring, with the addition of the .020 power-pod and radio gear, the art of soaring reached new heights for us, and like many others we're slowly becoming addicted to it."

* 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.
