Basic .60 (shoulder wing version) - Radio control sport model.
Quote: - "...high wing version of the 'Basic .60' is a good compromise of design in the sport type category. Although it could not be considered a primary trainer since it has very little self-correcting tendencies, its control feel can be made to be very docile. It would be an excellent choice for those who have mastered the basic skills of getting up and down in one piece and are ready to move to a more responsive craft. The engine power and control throws used will determine the nature of the beast. I tried a number of different engine set-ups in the prototype testing. With a .45 2-stroke and using control throws in the minimum range, the ship had a very docile type feel with a very slow stall speed. The nose will drop straight forward with no tip stalling apparent. This would be the way to go if you are just interested in puttering around the field with a user friendly aircraft. Just keep the CG in the forward portion of the range for added stability. If you choose to use a .45 size engine, care will have to be used in the wood selection and building process to keep the weight down or nose weight will have to be added. Lightening holes cut in the plank elevators and stabilizer would help this condition. All of the construction techniques are very straightforward with a box type fuselage and constant chord built-up wing. This will keep construction time down to a minimum. If you are of the more brave at heart, a piped .45 or .60 2-stroke up front and larger control throws and you have a totally different aircraft. It proved quite fast and will wrap around itself due to the short fuselage moments and low aspect ratio wing..." Alex Bouknight's Basic .60 from issue 02-92.

Did we get something wrong with this plan? That happens sometimes. Help us make a correction
* 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.
