About this Plan

Olympic 650 - Radio control glider. R/C trainer. Published by RCM, also kitted by Airtronics.

Quote: - "The Olympic 650 is a high performance sailplane featuring easy assembly and convenient size. The design was developed with the novice in mind, with a simple to build and rugged structure and forgiving characteristics. The Olypic 650 is quite stable and is recommended for those with no experience with R/C models..."

Update 08/08/2016: Replaced this plan with a better version which includes missing 2nd sheet showing formers, thanks to Don.

Supplementary files

Scan of formers. Also, build manual (from Airtronics) text and pics, 10 pages complete.

Good point. I never really registered this. The book is a completely not to say astonishingly detailed manual for the Olympic 650 containing about 60 pages (including many photos) on how to build, cover and set up this model. Includes everything down to itemised list of materials. Also alternative power setups. Then onto flight theory.

Hey Steve, Here are a few pics of the Olympic 650 I've recently completed [see morepics 007-009]. Thanks for a great website!

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.
