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.

Telemaster 40 Deluxe (oz15195) : 09/04/2024

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

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...

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...

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 :)

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