Eastbourne Monoplane - Fun scale model for .049 - .06 engines and 2-3 function miniature R/C.
Quote: - "AFTER BUILDING a very successful Morane Parasol for I/2A (i.e. .049-.051 power) I decided to try another early aircraft. I picked the Eastbourne as it had an interesting vintage look combined with simplicity. The fuselage was big enough to allow the use of small, rather than mini, r/c gear and with the shoulder wing and large tailplane it looked as though it would be a stable flier. I make no claims that it is exact scale but it is certainly 'near' scale. Mine flies well with a TD.051 and is even mildly aerobatic. There is plenty of room inside and it should be easy to fit two servos - or three, if using fairly small r/c gear - and a throttle-equipped motor. A word of caution before clearing the workbench, however. Although not difficult to build, it does need a fairly experienced hand on the controls and is not intended as a trainer for the newcomer to radio control. The flying characteristics are more akin to a 1/2A racer than, say, a 1/2A powered glider..."

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.
