About this Plan

Jaws IV. Radio control twin sport model for electric power with 2 x Speed 400 motors. Wingspan 36 in, wing area 288 sq in.

Note the Jaws II (oz11434) and Jaws IV plans both apppeared in the same article, in RCME Aug 199. See the Jaws II (oz11434) listing for the full article.

Quote: "With the hooligan phase over, the socially conscious era dawned, with JAWS-4, This was to be an electric powered version; quiet, compact, and easy to fly - all that woolly jumper stuff. Mind you, I was still reeking of 30% nitro, so I wasn't going to let 'electric' mean 'no performance'. From the weight analyses of the previous JAWS, I knew I wanted a certain wing loading, yet felt that a single Speed 400 would not give me the go I wanted. Suddenly, the idea of a twin seemed exciting, and an electric twin is so hassle-free to fly! The sums showed that I needed a little more wing area whilst a flat bottom wing section would help carry the weight with less drag. Well, go it certainly does - probably as fast if not faster than JAWS-1, which in turn is no slow-coach. It really does feel like IC performance in an electric plane - its aerobatic performance is that good! It also glides fast but flat!"

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.
