About this Plan

Pee Wee Pal. Free flight model for Cox PeeWee power. Model Airplane News, Feb 1958.

Quote: "This Cox Pee Wee .02 engine powered free flight model is the 18th version of one basic design that the author has constructed and flown. Our Pee Wee Pal is the smallest of the family, of which the largest was a giant eight footer. The uncanny ability of every model, regardless of size, to be stable and ride out any violent air disturbances, and yet be peppy enough to win numerous prizes in several classes, has caused us to call this youngest member of the group our 'Pal', hence the name.

Although previous versions used the NACA 6409 airfoil, we found that the Clark Y airfoil produced equal results in the smaller models. Stabilizer airfoil is Clark Y with a thickness of 9% of its chord. The wing area of 144 sq inches is ideal for the Pee Wee .02 engine. However any half A diesel or glow plug engine can be installed..."

Update 24/02/2015: Replaced this plan with a clearer copy, thanks to JJ.

Thoroughly enjoy this website of model airplanes. I'm looking at the photos associated with "Pee Wee Pal" photo #003. Is the man holding the plane Walt Musciano? We were sort of pen pals in the 1950s when I was flying control line 1/2A. Thanks for the plans!

Hello dear Outerzone friends. Again I want to congratulate you on the excellent website which is a great contribution to all scrachbuilders. I want to provide you with photos of my PEEWEE PAL model, converted to electric and two channels [pics 007-012]. It's a fun build-and-fly model with a great Old Timer look. Thank you very much for your great contribution.
Greetings,

Here is a photo of my first ever RC model in 1969. I still have my original hand drawn plans on brown wrapping paper, but had long since forgotten the name or designer. Now I know!!!
In lieu of twin rudders and a monowheel, I made the bold modifications shown. It had a hopelessly unreliable O.S. Pixie on rudder only, a slightly more reliable Babe Bee .049 in the nose, but was an excellent flyer despite the odds. It came down once out in the middle of Lake Katchewanooka (look that up on Google!) and had to be retrieved by canoe before it sank. It was subsequently dried out, and flew again! The model was covered with doped tissue - yellow with black trim.

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.
