Flying Tiger. Control line profile stunt model.
The Flying Tiger and Red Dragon (oz10655) designs appeared together in the same article, in Aeromodeller July 1963.
Quote: "With an effective wing area of approximately 290 sq in, and an all-up weight of 21 oz, these models are very lively on the lines. Although designed primarily for 2.5 - 3.5 cc engines, they can take up to 5 cc.
Whichever model is chosen, the same building instructions apply. Begin the wing by cutting 16 of 1/16 in ribs and three 1/8 in ribs from medium hard balsa. A ply template will definitely be a great help. Cut the necessary holes for the leadout wires for ribs R1A and R2A as indicated.
Shape the leading edge from 1/2 x 1/2 x 36 in and the trailing edge from 1/4 x 3/4 x 36 in medium hard balsa. Cement the 1/16 in ply strengthener to the leading edge. Notch 1/16 in deep grooves in the edges to take the ribs, then build the wing directly over the plan by first pinning in position the main spar and the trailing edge. Slide and cement the ribs in position. Adjust for squareness before cement sets. Allow to dry then add the leading edge to the free ends of the ribs. Use pieces of scrap balsa to pack up..."

* 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.
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.
