Easy 200 - Radio control sport model.
Quote: - "The Easy 200 is a model for anyone who would like to have a biplane with good flying characteristics and simple construction.
I started tinkering with the idea of a biplane version of the Easy 100 (oz8534) (published in RCM July, 1988) after I was totally satisfied with all aspects of the high wing design. I wanted to have a pleasant looking model, with simple lines and easy construction. For this reason, I chose a cabin type arrangement. I just took the Easy 100 plan and, with a black pen, I drew a new fuselage shape. Basically, I raised the fuselage height just enough to get the necessary clearance between the two wings, without spoiling the looks. Subsequent flights showed no ill effects of two wings being relatively close together.
My original Easy 200 had ailerons on both wings. The second version has them on the top wing only. As can be expected, the four aileron version is faster in roll, but the two aileron version handles nicely, as well. It is up to you, which version you prefer. Despite being a bipc with thick wings, the model is surprisingly fast when flown wide-open. The landing speed is very slow. Gusts have little effect on the model.
With a clear conscience, I can recommend this airplane to any beginner to learn on, and to anyone else who might find this model a good
plane to take to the field for enjoyable flying.
Enough of the virtues of the Easy 200; let's start on construction. Here, I'm tempted to reprint most of the Easy 100 article, but I don't want to be accused of "cheating," so here it is fresh, for the Easy 200. To help keep the construction notes brief and easy to follow, the various parts are numbered and called out on both the construction article and plans..."

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.
