Updates

07/04/2024: General News: It's going to be quiet around here on Outerzone for the next 8 or 9 days. We are going away for a week. By all means carry on sending in plans etc and we'll just queue everything up and work through them all when we get back. I will check to see the site is running ok, but if you are awaiting an answer to an email, this might take a while. Steve.

Berliner, the fearful Teddy Bear carrier, is the big brother of the Leipziger (oz8767). The article is, like the proverbial cheque, in the mail.

looking at the instructions and the picture of part WJ, i think there is a dihedral set . I would guess about 3-5 degrees for each winghalf.

I am very thankful to Mr John Jennings
Aidan Welly : Bangau (oz15218) : 08/04/2024

The correct spelling is Pentti Pätiälä. And yes, he is Finnish.
Heikki Hämäläinen : Nakke (oz10599) : 08/04/2024

Very good, Mr. Panchal, and the build notes are very clear and friendly too.
As for canards, I don't recall seeing many birds with a screaming propeller on their beaks.
Mother Nature must have not approved of that...

Hi Am I correct in assuming this wing design is flat overall. Thanks Colin

Hello Outerzone, Enclosed are pictures [main pic, 004] of my 1936 Air Chief (oz 212). The model was originally a free flight, but I modified it into a 3 channel RC. It's powered by an OS .20FP and controlled with Hitec servos. It's covered...

I’ve finished and flown my sample. Power is a 480 outrunner on 3S 1300mAh Lipo. Feel free to post [main pic, 005-008].

Hi Jan thanks, nice to hear. I remember a time when I was younger when people made anything to a secret, that impressed on me to share as much as possible. As grandma always told us, Shared joy is double joy :-)
Matzito : Holland (oz15211) : 05/04/2024

Beautiful work, Matze. Always a delight to see your designs and craftsmanship. Thank you for sharing the plans and cad files with us.
Jan Novick : Holland (oz15211) : 05/04/2024

Thanks Miguel :-)
Matzito : Holland (oz15211) : 05/04/2024

Superb work, Matzo! No surprise here, quality projects is what you do, and this must be one of your simpler models. Fine subject choice, and I believe FZ would have wanted a parts set for himself too :)
Miguel : Holland (oz15211) : 05/04/2024

Excellent
Celso : Chimbo (oz10458) : 05/04/2024

Dear Matthias,
is there a STL file for the shell of the engine mount? It really looks so smooth designed ideal for 3d printing
