About this Plan

Firebolt - Forward swept wing canard RC sport/pattern plane.

Quote: - "You've heard about airplanes that look like they're breaking the sound barrier even when they're sitting on the ground. This RC pusher canard with twin fins and a swept-forward wing - for a .40 engine and 4 channel controls - is an excellent example of this phenomenon. It flies and handles like a conventional pattern/sport airplane..."

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.
