About this Plan

White Monoplane. Scale model for micro-RC using a PZ brick or similar setup. Wingspan 18 in.

Update 30/11/2023: Added article, thanks to hlsat.

Quote: "The White Sport Monoplane. The original aircraft was sold as a kit of parts for home assembly. You provided your own engine, usually in the form of an ex-motorcycle item. Being American, it would probably be stripped from a Harley or Indian. As such, there is precious little information about the full-size aircraft. That in itself isn’t necessarily a disadvantage because it gives us a pretty much free hand with regards colour scheme. With that in mind, I finished my model as I might have done

a full size machine built with these fair hands. Whatever, I like the way it looks and that’s really all that matters.

The model: As is usually the case with these small models, this one is a scaled down, and lightened, version of a previously successful design.

The equipment used is a Vapor 'brick' (receiver, servos and ESC all in a neat, convenient size block), an AEO 7 mm motor unit and 160 mAh LiPo cell. Pushrods are nothing more complicated than lengths of 1mm carbon rod with bent pins attached at each end using a short length of heat-shrink tube and a spot of CA glue. No adjustment is provided but getting the length correct isn’t difficult if you don’t CA the control horn end until you have everything connected.

Those rather fancy looking spoked wheels are typical of the prototype but in this instance are something of a cheat. I could have spent more money than the rest of the model cost and bought a pair of lovely, but delicate proper spoked wheels but I’m too mean for that. Alternatively I could have made my own spoked wheels but wasn’t in the mood for that sort of thing at the time, so I compromised. The wheels you see on the model actually came from a toy cycle. You know, one of those things that are intended to be used with ramps and jumps. Finger Bikes I believe they call them..."

Update 4/12/2023: Added article part 2, thanks to hlsat.

Datafile:

ScaleType:
  • NotFound | help

    This is a scale plan, but ScaleType is set as NotFound.

    This happens when we can't find a relevant Wikipedia page to link to. Usually because the type in question is uncommon.

    Corrections? Use the correction form to tell us the new ScaleType link we should be using. Thanks.

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.
