Batedor II - AKA Cegonha - Control line trainer model.
Dear Steve, Happy birthday Outerzone! Congratulations for this great website! I really appreciate it a lot! I'm sending you the plans for building an almost indestructible C/L trainer I found at http://www.ultraligero.net/Aeromodelos/B/BATEDOR.pdf The model is now named Batedor II (Pathfinder II). I say 'now named' because her name was once Cegonha (Stork). In the early 70s the Portuguese television, RTP, had a program about aeromodelling and RTP would sent Cegonha's plan and other 3 C/L plans, a more advanced trainer, a combat wing and a stunter, by mail for free to whoever ask for it. Cegonha was delivered printed on two sheets of paper, one for the wing the other for the rest. On those days, I was 11 or 12 and I built a couple of Cegonhas myself and I had lots of fun in return, quick to build, easy to repair, and very forgiving once in the air. I don't know who the authors of those 4 models set were. What I know is the presenter of the TV show, later renamed Cegonha to Batedor and the plan could be bought at his shop in Lisboa, this time printed on one sheet of paper only. The shop closed more than 35 years ago... Thank you! Best regards, Rui Fonseca.

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.
