Did we get something wrong with these details about this plan (especially the datafile)?
That happens sometimes. You can help us fix it.

User commentsMy version of the Widgeon shown in the photos [see more pics 003, 004] is a double size R/C model for a 150 watt electric out runner with alternative plain wing for R/E(ruddervator)/T control and R/E(ruddervator)/A/T. Nice sport flier at just on 16 ounces with the RET wing, quite aerobatic with the aileron wing at an ounce heavier.

Hello Mary and Steve, Please find attached a few photos of my latest model built from Outerzone [main pic, 006,007]. Rather predictably it is the Frog Widgeon, the last of the six in my Frog Senior Series collection.
It incorporates all of my usual modifications; a built up tail, a little extra sheeting on the top cowl, laminated balsa wheels, a pilot, a removable nose block, adjustable thrust button and a carved balsa propeller. I also judiciously strengthened around the cockpit opening to enable the removal of the spine piece and make a bit more room for the pilot bust.
Covering is a new type of domestic tissue that I’ve managed to source, 18g/m2 and it handles very much like Peck tissue.
Weight minus rubber and ballast is 23.15g (0.82oz) and bed glides look promising.

* 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.
