About this Plan

Little V - Radio control slope soarer model.

Quote: - "The Little V is an easy to build miniature slope soaring glider. It sports a 36-1/2in wingspan and weighs a scant 15oz with two controlaire S-4 servos and a 225 MA battery pack. How small can a slope soaring glider be? I really don't know, but the Little V was inspired by a model of a similar configuration built by young Steve Woodward of the Cordova Model Masters, and it has a 26in wingspan. Steve's little bird flew with such great success that I just had to try one. These tiny gliders require moderate to strong conditions to keep them airborne, and flight test have proven that a 15 mph plus wind over a good slope will do the job. A 42in wingspan (add two extra wing ribs) would be ideal for more moderate conditions. The model was first flown with a single channel pulse rudder only system ...the construction is very simple and requires little explanation. The wing is skinned top and bottom, Ken Willard anti-warp style, and is quite light and rugged. Use 1/16 medium balsa for the skins..."

Here is a photo of my Little V [see more pics 003]. I built it from your plan. Please feel free to use photo. A great little flyer and so easy and cheap to build. 5 stars. Thank you.

Hello Steve! I just wanted to show you some pics of some planes I built from plans available at Outerzone. This is Little V Glider, built in Feb and March 2016 [more pics 004-006].

The user photos and comments are more than enough reward for the time expended cleaning and repositioning the bits on the original plan.

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.
