Have changed the spelling on this one to "Soar Birdy" now. The only original doc we have here is the scanned manual from the kit, as printed by Bridi Hobby Enterprises, which use the spelling "Soar Birdi" throughout. See supplement file....
SteveWMD : Soar Birdy : 19/10/2021

That's correct Robert. Wulf died while piloting a FW-19. Supposedly a control rod snapped.
RC Yeager : Rassitoodus : 19/10/2021

Yes, that’s the late Eut Tileston’s powered by a Cox .010 to make a mockery on the A - Texaco event.
Tom Ryan : Rassitoodus : 18/10/2021

Well, the plan includes the following note: "Balance point not shown on original plan. See 'Li Lightning' by Doug Joyce, published in June 1976 Model Builder". That plan is also here in Outerzone (oz426). In any case, CG is probably...
RC Yeager : Rassitoodus : 18/10/2021

As far as I remember the Fw-19a was the airplane that killed designer Georg Wulf from Focke-Wulf's.What went wrong - bad design or pilot error?
Robert Schlickewitz : Rassitoodus : 18/10/2021

Many thanks to RFJ for adding the article today...you are a Star!!
Brian Gibbs : Bellanca Skyrocket : 18/10/2021

I lost this plan in a house move 5 years ago - any chance of the articles on this model? It was originally in RCME Nov 2001 and part 1 of the article was in that issue but Part 2 and 3 were in the following issues (Dec 2001 & Jan 2002).
Brian : Bellanca Skyrocket : 18/10/2021

Rassitoodus-MB-07-76_oz3009. Hello mary, hello steve. I think the model "Rassitoodus" looks like the FW-19. Where is the CG?

Greetings, Just finished up an Aristo Cat (plan 6995) and have included a couple of photos [pic 013, 014]. Built from a 60 year-old Midwest kit, dope finish and 3 channel RC. Cheers,

The only gripe I have with Master Stuart is that he is too slow in updating his website. More, sir, more! Please?
Looking at his photos of construction and finished product leave me wondering which is best as covering up that...

Ok, ok, this wing plan shape was pretty common (and pretty pretty too!), the BoT may have been inspired by something from the Thermic series. Do a search...

About Outerzone

Outerzone is a listing of free vintage and old-timer flying model aircraft plans to download. The listing is free for everyone - you don't need to register or log in to download these plans.

You can view model plans by category tag (like say free flight, control line, radio control, scale, rubber, etc...) using the browse plans pages. Use the list all page for a full A-Z text listing. There is a keyword search on the search page, or you can try the advanced search page for more detailed searches. There is also an experimental area called the TagMatrix where you can view all the plans that match your own chosen combination of tags (and wingspan and year of origin).

For a quick visual fix, you can page through the latest plan thumbnails added or the latest model pics added, at 60 pics per page.

Outerzone was designed to be maintained and updated by volunteers called Site admins who get involved but (perhaps predictably) it hasn't ever really worked out that way. So with the exception of a few good people who have helped out here in the past (see below) at the moment it's essentially just me. See the FAQ page for more details on how this site works, and why.

Outerzone is also (I hope) a secure repository for vintage model aircraft plans that may have historical significance.

Got feedback? Suggestions? email me. Really, feedback is what we need most.

Want to help me maintain and update this listing? See the get involved pages for more details.

Want to make a donation? The continued running of this site (since launch in March of 2011) involves both time and money. If you want to make a small contribution then click here to donate using Paypal. And bless you.

RCLibrary

Launched in September 2015, RCLibrary is the new sister site to Outerzone. A small but fast-growing collection of old-time modeller books and periodicals, held online as PDF files for free download. Everything is free. The library is open to everyone - you don't need to register or log in before you start downloading these titles. There are no charges or subscriptions. Basically, it's Outerzone for books.

Vinplandex

Click here to visit VinPlanDex - the online index of RCGroups vintage plans thread 1265873. Complete with search facility.

What is the difference between Outerzone and VinPlanDex? Well...

VinPlanDex is is an exhaustive and complete index of every plan that has ever been posted on the Vintage & Old-Timer Plans thread.

In comparison Outerzone is a slightly random collection of plans in PDF format. Outerzone does not include all the plans posted on the Vintage & Old-Timer Plans thread. At a guess, only about 80%. Some plans on here are not from that thread. Also, some are direct submissions.
