User commentsHello Steve and Mary, looking at the Zaic Cabin plan ID 10822, the stabiliser dimensions are not included (unless I'm mistaken).

Good point, I didn't notice that. Anyone have another copy of this plan, showing the stab details?

Steve, I don't have the plan but your site has enough info to approximate the stab dimensions. Zaic's plan for the Miss America (oz5645) looks like a scaled up Cabin with only a few cosmetic changes. Using that plan and roughly calculating, the stab has 25% of the wing area, 50% of the wing's aspect ratio, and is located at twice the wing chord from the wing trailing edge. The Cabin top view and the sketch in the center left at the bottom show the stab with a straight trailing edge, a tapered leading edge, and a squared off tip. Drawing that out the center chord is 3" (per plan), the tip is 1.875", and the length is 8". (76 x 48 x 203 mm). This gives close to 25% area and 50% A/R. Enlarging slightly might be a good idea, perhaps the tip to 2" and/or a bit longer than 8" Easier to trim the excess than to add on after test flying. The stab must have come pre-cut out of 1/32" stock with the kit. With no assembly there was no need to print it out. Personal opinion - the Miss America stab is more attractive and would be in keeping with Zaic's designs. Scale it down and cut it out of 1/32" sheet.

* 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.
