About this Plan

Senior Falcon - RC sport model. Discontinued kit.

Quote: - "Attached the Senior Falcon by Goldberg. No formers but they can be worked out from the plan. This was the larger version of this extraordinary airplane designed by the genius Carl Goldberg. It is important to make the wing spars with hardwood, NO BALSA HERE. Stable, aerobatic and very forgiving as a secondary trainer or a sport model."

You were right Steve, I tried another download and it worked fine. The Senior Falcon is a real classic and the best of the Falcon series. I recently flew one of the ARF versions and was amazed at how well it flew, sooooo much better than some of the crap we get these days. I still have a set of Jr Falcon plans that I carefully traced (in ink) from the drawing we borrowed from the kit when it first came out about 1962. My buddy, Joey Richards, worked after school at a drugstore where model supplies were sold. He borrowed the plans so we could build the model, not being able to afford the $3.95 kit price. I never finished mine but did fly other versions of the plane with Cox 049 and escapement, all flew well. Thanks to your site I now have the complete Falcon plan set, would make good electric conversions....

Does anyone have any tracings for the tail ribs for the tail on the Goldberg Senior Falcon?

Maybe this file will help. I cropped the stabilizer view from the plan, then measured the length of each rib and drew a new set, used the center rib thickness ( 1") from the fuselage view. It's a little funny the way it's built, leading edge and trailing edge are the same thickness from root to tip, but the ribs seem to be tapered a bit. Might be a good idea to cut them a little thick and sand them to final shape once the stab is assembled. I didn't like the little tabs on the ribs, just block up the leading and trailing edge when assembling. I made each rib a little long in the front to fit into the slot shown, your choice. I'm not a fan of Goldberg's center spar but if you want to be authentic, you have to go with the plans. Be sure to set your printer for no scaling when printing, ribs are on an 8-1/2" x 11" sheet. I've included a stab plan so you won't have to cut up your plans. Good luck...

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.
