About this Plan

Warlock - RC pattern plane, for .60 power.

Quote:- "Throughout the contest season, the Warlock never failed to place high in the standings. This can be attributed to three factors. First, the Warlock has the capability to awe the judges and intimidate competitors. Due to its unusual appearance and unique design aspects, an immense psychological advantage was created in my favor. In this day of immaculate maneuvers, something is needed to make a flier stand above the others. In some cases, just the name of the contestant alone is good for an extra one or two points for each maneuver. Another way to influence the judges is to literally astound them by hauling out a truly unique aircraft which flies with utter perfection.
Second, when these intangible aspects have been peeled away, the most vital factor remains: consistency. In this design, all the components melded together into a flawless, dependable piece of machinery. Fate guided my decision toward selecting the Supertigre Blue-head as my main contest engine. Throughout the '71 contest season, I never experienced an engine malfunction - no aborted flights, dead-sticks, overheatings, load-ups on taxi, or even a broken prop! Also, I was fortunate because I never had to quit in the middle of a contest due to radio failure (Royal Classic 70 system). And the Warlock has its own dependable features: it has the uncanny ability to maintain precise contest trim, access to most vital areas is direct and simple, every component is incorporated simply and logically..."

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.
