General Aircraft Hotspur II - Free flight scale troop carrying glider model. Scale is 1/12.
Quote: - "Designed and built by Ron Warring and Bill Dean of the Aeromodeller staff ...although the scale of 1in to the foot only gives a wingspan of some 46in, the model is larger than would at first be expected. This is because of the rather low aspect ratio and blunt tips of the main plane ...knock off wings, both backward and forward, have been fitted. The fin plugs into the tailplane, which in turn is attached to the fuselage by rubber bands. In short, the model has all the advantages of the non-scale type, plus the fact that it looks like the real thing. Ready for flying the all-up weight is 16oz, which gives a wing loading of 8.5 oz/sq ft. "
Mary, herewith the Hotspur 2 plan. Sorry for the delay, but I had to go to Adelaide to get it copied, it was too big to do at home. Mike

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.
