About this Plan

Junior Falcon EP. Radio control sport trainer model. Wingspan 37-1/8 in, wing area 244 sq in, for electric power with Park 340 motor.

The original Carl Goldberg Jr Falcon (oz8144) kit first appeared in 1963. This here is a later, modern redrawn plan in PDFvector format.

Quote: "Redesigned for contemporary electric power, 3 or 4 channel options, by Jim Zare 2019."

Quote: "I first scanned and created a CAD file of the Junior Falcon in 1999. This model used a Speed 400 and Nicads. It was 3 channel and flew great. A number of people bought the laser cut parts under the Electric Model Design brand. I still have one of the Speed 400 models.

In 2011 I redesigned the Junior Falcon for outrunners and Lipos. The model shown below (White Stab) uses a Eflite Park 340. After several seasons of flying I am tweaking it by adding a magnetic hatch and a bolt on wing just like most of my other sport models. No more rubber bands. It will be easy to put this model in the car and get a few flights in those calm summer evenings.

The 4 channel version cruises at 1/3 throttle, loops and rolls at half throttle and is quite fast at full speed. I do mix some down elevator with throttle. With the motor stopped the Junior Falcon has a slow graceful glides just like the original. I do retain dihedral."

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

Thanks for providing Outerzone! I am attaching a couple of photos of my Junior Falcon plan, to add to that page.

This is my build of the Junior Falcon EP [pic 004]. My first attempt at radio control was using a Junior Falcon in 1981. It used a Cox .049 and a full size two channel radio. This one was built in 2021. Thats 40 years apart!! This one uses 3s lipo and has four channel control.

* 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.
