About this Plan

Obelix - Radio control slope soarer for 2 channels.

Quote: - "Pull-out plan for an exciting two function slope sports model ...The present design will fly inverted with very little change of trim and will perform any combinations of aerobatics involving rolls, inside and outside loops. Most maneouvers in the book are easily performed but this is a 'fun' model and I would expect it to be out-performed by a smoother larger model. Still, they cost more... I am currently using blue foam panels, the completed model being covered in lightweight tisue using wallpaper paste before the iron on film. You can however cut your panels from expanded polystyrene foam building the model as per, but cladding with obeche veneeer... a third alternative is the built-up construction as shown on the plan."

Hi Steve, Here is another Officeworks scan, the Obelix slope soarer... I have straightened and squared up some of the main construction lines, they were a bit messy and out of alignment. The fuselage 'airfoil' section measures 14 5/8" from LE to hinge line... Cheers,

Update 31/05/2017: Added templates for optional foam wing, thanks to KraftyOne.

Hi Steve, Further info on the Obelix. I found this jpeg of the Obelix foam wing templates on one of my HDs, not
sure when it was scanned in or at what resolution. I cleaned it up a bit, hope it is usable. Cheers,

Notes

* 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.

Scaling

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.
