Mini Robot (oz10900)
About this Plan
Veron Mini Robot. Single channel radio control sport plane. Wingspan 36 in, for rudder only with up to .95 cc motors.
Quote: "Easy to build lightweight radio plane for transistorized receivers for rudder control only.
Building Instructions. The MINI-ROBOT has been designed as a 36 inch Sport Radio Model for rudder control only. It is a compact version of the larger International ROBOT Radio Trainer. It has identical characteristics - easy to build inherent stability, dependable and robust structure.
It may be powered with beam mount motors up to .95. (.054 cu in) though certain cakes of lower powered motors up to 1 cc may be fitted if light and compact.
The 205 sq in wing area and high lift section (NACA 4415) will carry most weights of commercial single channel transistorized radio receivers with preferably rubber-driven escapements, and batteries.
For those radio units not supplied with actuators, we recommend the F Rising Compound or Lightweight, Elmic Conquest or Commander, Bonner Varicomp (trimmed in width), Babcock Compound - all rubber driven. Experienced modellers may fit relay type receivers such as Gemini with electric actuators such as Unimite. The extra weight with batteries will make the model fast and responsive and is recommended only for experienced pilots.
Simple tools are needed. Use BRITFIX Balsa Wood Cement, or BRITFIX 55 White PVA. Also Britfix Clear Shrinking Dopes and Thinners, or for glow-plug powered models, Humbrol Butyrate Clear and coloured dopes. Use a VERON Balsa Knife; modelling pliers; 1/16, 1/8 and 3/16 drill and handbrace, grease-proof paper to protect the plan, tissue paste and garnet paper, also VERON. Modelling Pins.
We recommend the MS Small Free-Flight Round Tank (for Diesels), Air glow-plug motors, a 1/2 or 3/4 oz oval Polythene bottle (Scent Bottle) made into a clunk tank; or metal tank.
The simple sequence of assembly is pictorially laid out in a diagrammatic sequence which if followed carefully with the corresponding paragraphs in these instructions, will greatly facilitate building..."

User commentsSteve, Here is a picture of the Vernon Mini Robot I just built from OZ plans [morepics 007]. I used a Stevens Aero WingIt! kit. It was the right size and saved a lot of time. Powered by a 2204-14T brushless motor, 610 2S Li-Po, 3 channel R/C. Weighs 210g. Also a magazine ad for the Vernon kit. Thanks for all you do!

* 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.
