About this Plan

Sporty Ace - Radio control sport biplane model. Smaller version of the Lazy Ace, for .40 power. Scanning by Don at EAC, cleanup by theshadow.

Quote: - "If you're a bipe lover and don't want to build a large one, the Sporty Ace is a must. Designed around a .40, it has both appeal and ability. Try it and you'll like it ... as you may be able to recognise, the Sporty Ace is a first cousin to the Lazy Ace (oz5008) the SA has a semi-symmetrical airfoil, but retains the slightly lifting stab of the Lazy Ace, Miss Texas and Lucky lady series of designs. Her handling is the same on take off and landing ...the wing area is generous for a .40, 700 square inches, and the weight is low, only 4-3/4 pounds covered with Super Monokote, which gives her a wing loading of 15.6 ounces per square foot..."

Update 07/03/2017: added article, thanks to RFJ.

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.
